Virtual reality can feel like a solitary experience because it is contained within a headgear.
Your Oculus Quest (and Quest 2), on the other hand, allows you to cast what you’re seeing to a television, allowing anyone else to view what you’re seeing.
How to Cast Oculus Quest 2 to Roku TV?
Casting is simple, and you can use it with any TV that has a built-in Chromecast app or a plugged-in Chromecast device.
- Make sure your phone and Oculus Quest headset are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
- Turn on the TV and the Oculus Quest headset.
- On your phone, open the Oculus app.

- If you’re utilizing the casting feature for the first time, you may need to provide permission to your local Wi-Fi network.
- In the top “Cast From” section of the app, your headset should have been selected. If there are multiple headsets mentioned, make sure you choose the correct one.
- Tap your TV or Chromecast device in the “Cast To” box. If it still doesn’t show up, make sure your TV is turned on and the Chromecast is turned on, then tap “Tap to search for other devices.”

How to play Minecraft VR on Oculus Quest 2?
For the Oculus Rift, there is a native version of Minecraft Bedrock Edition, although Minecraft is not accessible for Oculus Quest or Quest 2. On your Quest, you can still play Minecraft, but only if you have a VR-capable PC and an Oculus Link cable.
As long as you stay linked to your PC, your computer runs the Minecraft software and provides visual data to the headset, allowing you to play Minecraft in VR.
In VR, the Bedrock Edition is simple to set up.
All you need is a link cable to connect your Oculus to your computer, the Minecraft app on your computer, the Oculus app on your computer, the Oculus Rift Minecraft app on your computer, and the Minecraft app on your computer.
On your Quest, here’s how to play Minecraft Bedrock Edition:
- If you haven’t already, go to the Microsoft Store and buy and install Minecraft.
- On your PC, open the Oculus app.
- Look for Minecraft in the search results and pick it.
- Click Free or Install.
- Put your Oculus on and use the link cord to attach it to your computer.
- To enable Oculus Link, select Enable.
- Select Start after finding Minecraft in your apps or searching for it.
- Minecraft will be available in virtual reality.
On your Quest, you can also play Minecraft Java Edition in VR, although it’s more difficult.
It requires the Vivecraft mod, which allows the Java edition of Minecraft to run in virtual reality.
The VR implementation here is more sophisticated than the Bedrock version, allowing you to personalize your experience with a variety of movement and interaction options.
