Steps to Cast Oculus Quest 2 to Firestick TV
The good news is that casting your Oculus Quest 2 to your Firestick TV won’t take much time. Nevertheless, there’s no direct link between the virtual reality device and Firestick TV.
This means you’ll have to connect them through a third-party app. That being said, here’s our step-by-step guide to take you through the entire process.
Step 1: Download Third-Party App
Before you begin the casting process, make sure that you have the latest version of your Oculus Quest 2.
After that’s checked, go to the Play Store app on the Firestick TV and download AirScreen. That’ll be the third-party application you use to complete the cast.
Step 2: Launch the App and Sync
After downloading the app, launch it by selecting the “Start” button. It should show a display saying, “Wait for Connection.” Next, you’ll have to turn on the Oculus Quest 2 and wear it.
Navigate to the “Sharing” button and choose “Start Headset Casting.” Once you’re synced, you can then click on “Device” followed by “Start.”
Step 3: Exit Casting
Now that you displayed your gaming skills on-screen to your friends, it’s time to shut the AirScreen app off. To do that, you just have to take your Firestick remote and click on the back button to exit.
