How to Cast the Quest 2 to a TV

Got an older TV? No sweat! There are cool gadgets out there like the NVIDIA Shield or Google Home Hub that can help your Oculus Quest 2 chat with your TV.

And voilà! Now everyone can see the cool worlds you’re exploring in VR, right on the big screen. It’s like bringing your virtual adventures to life in your living room!
