Here’s the fact, you can stream from your Oculus Quest 2 to take your gaming or social experience to a next level. If you are also trying to figure how to stream with Oculus Rift 2 to Roku TV, then this is the article for you.

We have explained the detailed process of how to cast Oculus Quest 2 to Roku TV.

There is no direct options available to pair your Oculus Rift 2 with Roku TV, but this can be done by using an intermediate device like a tablet or phone to use screen mirroring on Roku.

So, how to stream Oculus Rift 2 on Roku TV? Let’s discuss.

How to Cast Oculus Quest 2 to Roku TV

Before you start the streaming, make sure that you have a cellphone or tablet available and the OS can be any of Android or iOS. Oculus Rift 2 lacks the screen mirroring technology like the Roku TV, that’s why a middle device like an Android phone can help you to pair both devices. There are chances, that Roku may update their option but till then, follow the below process.

Screen Mirroring From Android

TO enable screen mirroring, you only need Android phone, once you have it, follow these steps.

  • Open the ‘Settings’ app
  • Tap ’Smart View’
  • Select your Roku device
  • Select the option from Roku TV
  • After this process, the screen will be mirrored.

Screen Mirroring on iOS

For iPhone users, the process is slightly different. All you need to do for mirroring is using AirPlay.

Connect the Roku TV and Your Apple device with the same internet connection.

  • From your mobile, search AirPlay on the Oculus app
  • Select Roku device
  • Accept the notification that will come in your Roku TV

Casting your Oculus Quest 2 to Mobile Device

Once the mirroring is done, now it is time to connect your Oculus Quest 2 to a mobile device.

Open app from mobile > Menu > Options 

Select ‘Cast From’ and select Oculus Quest 2

Select ‘Cast To’ and select your phone or device with Chromecast.

If you have a weak internet connection, you can experience some lag due to the latency in the network. If not then, this can be due to multiple devices connect at the same time as you are not directly using Roku on your Quest.

The lag won’t be noticeable in the Oculus Quest 2 but if that happens, that can be adjusted from the device itself.

If the lag is higher than minimal then there is network congestion. Try offloading some apps from the network to free up same bandwidth to use for streaming on Roku TV with Oculus Rift 2. 

This way, it will be super easy to stream video and the lag will fade away or will become minor.

How to Cast Oculus Quest to Standard TV

Unlike Roku TV, you don’t have to use a third-party device to cast Oculus Quest 2 to standard TV, as there is an option available to directly stream to the Smart TV.

How to Can you Control the Oculus Quest 2 Through a Roku TV?

There is no such thing to control while streaming Quest 2 on Roku TV. You can only get a streaming experience without any control on Roku TV.

Seeing Roku as Streaming Device?

That means the Roku TV is connected to a different internet connection. So, figure out this and join the same internet connection that is connected to your mobile phone.

This can happen if you forgot to switch off the data connection on the phone.

Oculus Quest 2 is known for its impressive features and since Facebook has acquired this company, they are just making these devices accessible to everyone and anyone is now enjoying virtual gaming rooms, meetings, and a ton of VR-related stuff.

Today, we are going to look into the problem of how to cast Oculus Quest 2 to Roku TV because for Roku TV you have to use Chromecast.

You can also use your iPhone to pair the Oculus Quest 2 with Roku TV but the process can be slightly ambiguous only for first-time users. Then you will be used to it.

So, I would like to share some more tips with you about using Oculus Quest with the Roku TV.

First of all, you have to use an Oculus app so that you can access the device from your smartphone and then pair it with TV. There will be a built-in Chromecast feature in the Roku that allows you to stream online and then you can use the app from your iPhone to configure the settings.

Conclusion

Now that you know how to stream Oculus Quest 2 to Roku TV, you can follow this process. Arrange a smartphone or tablet first and install the application and you will be good to go. Keep in mind that when Roku will release the update to directly connect with Oculus Quest 2, you won’t need a third-party device and you will finally get strong streaming.
