If you are wondering how to cast Oculus Quest 2 to your Samsung TV, this guide will help.
The Oculus Quest 2 is arguably one of the best VR headsets to date, and certainly the best-selling, with some great exclusive games. So it would be nice to share those games with other people, by having them up on your Samsung television for everyone to watch as you play. But is this something you can even do? And if so, how do you go about it?
We'll take a look, and you'll soon know whether Half-Life Alyx can be enjoyed by everyone around you as well.
Can You Cast Your Oculus Quest 2 To Your Samsung TV?
In theory, you absolutely can cast from your Oculus Quest 2 to your Samsung television. There are a couple of different approaches you can take. If your TV already has built-in casting ability, then you are already good to go. If not, then you'll need to get a Chromecast device to plug into your television.
You can then enable casting from your Oculus headset, or from the Oculus app on your phone, which you can download from Android here, or for iOS here. Not every app on the Oculus Quest 2 will allow casting, and you need to make sure that both your Oculus headset and your Chromecast device/television are connected to the same network. Alternatively, if you have the Samsung SmartThings app, it works in almost the exact same way as a Chromecast.
Done all that? Good. Then here's what you need to do next.
