Virtual reality doesn't have to be a solo experience. By learning how to cast Oculus Quest 2 to TV, you can share your VR outings with an audience. Family members, friends and other interested viewers can watch as you play a VR game or take on a VR workout like Supernatural.

Oculus Quest 2 (now referred to as Quest 2 by its parent company Meta) is TG's choice for the best VR headset. It sports a sleek design, intuitive controllers and strong built-in audio — all for a fairly affordable price. 

The Oculus Quest 2 also has access to an impressive library of games and apps, like Beat Saber, Golf+ and Resident Evil 4. But if you ever find yourself feeling a little lonely while using a VR headset, you're not alone. Many users want to share their gaming and fitness triumphs.

Luckily, there is a way! The Oculus Quest 2 has a handy feature that allows you to cast to a television. You will need a Chromecast device or a TV with built-in Chromecast capabilities. Our favorite is the Chromecast with Google TV. It's got 4K UHD streaming with support for HDR and Dolby Vision, plus comes with the excellent Google TV interface. 

Once you've hooked up with a Chromecast to your TV, you're ready to begin.
