Step 1: Get Your Firestick Ready
Before you can cast your Oculus Quest to your Firestick, you need to make sure your Firestick is set up and ready to go. Make sure it is plugged in and connected to your TV, and that you have a stable internet connection.
Step 2: Connect Your Quest to Wi-Fi
Next, turn on your Oculus Quest and connect it to your Wi-Fi network. This is necessary for both the Quest and Firestick to be on the same network in order to cast.
Step 3: Enable Developer Mode on Your Quest
To enable casting on your Quest, you need to enable developer mode. To do this, go to the settings on your Quest, select “Device” and then “More Settings”. From there, select “Developer Mode” and turn it on.
Step 4: Install the Oculus App on Your Firestick
Now it’s time to install the Oculus app on your Firestick. Go to the app store on your Firestick and search for “Oculus”. Download and install the app, then open it up.
Step 5: Connect Your Quest to Your Firestick
With the Oculus app open on your Firestick, select “Cast” from the menu. Then, put on your Quest and select “Cast” from the sharing menu. Your Quest should now be connected to your Firestick and you can start casting your VR content.
Step 6: Enjoy Your VR on the Big Screen
Now that your Quest is connected to your Firestick, you can enjoy your VR content on the big screen. Simply play your favorite VR game or app, and it will be displayed on your TV through the Firestick.
Step 7: Disconnect Your Quest from Your Firestick
When you’re done casting, it’s important to disconnect your Quest from your Firestick. To do this, simply select “Stop Casting” from the sharing menu on your Quest. This will disconnect your Quest from your Firestick and ensure that your VR content isn’t being shared with anyone else.
