How to Mirror Oculus Go to Your TV or Computer

5

Man holding phone and VR headset

The Oculus Go can cast your virtual reality experience straight to your mobile device. It’s a unique way to let friends and family see what you’re doing inside the Oculus Go, right on your phone.

But consider this:

Will your friends and family really want to crowd around a tiny phone to watch all your VR adventures?

Of course not. You need a bigger screen. It’s not possible to natively cast your Oculus Go display anywhere other than to a mobile device with the Oculus app.

Unless you use Reflector 3.

What’s Reflector?

Reflector is a simple app for your Mac or Windows computer that enables your devices to wirelessly mirror their screens to your computer. It takes VR casting and mobile gameplay to a whole new level. You can buy it here ($14.99).

How does casting work on the Oculus Go?

The Oculus Go casts your headset view to the Oculus mobile app. Simply download and install the app to cast your VR gameplay to your mobile device.

Here’s how to mirror your Oculus Go to your computer or TV so everyone can see your VR experience on the big screen:

Step 1

Download and install the Oculus app on your mobile device. Find it here on the App Store and Google Play Store.

Step 2

Download and install Reflector on your Mac or Windows computer. Make sure Reflector and Oculus Go are up to date.

Step 3

Check that your mobile device, computer and Oculus Go are connected to the same wifi network.

Step 4

Open Reflector on your computer.

Step 7

Step 8

When the “Start Headset Casting” window appears, click “Start.”

Step 9

Tap the Oculus Go notification that appears on your phone and open your Oculus Go app.

Step 10

You are now mirroring your VR experience to your computer with Reflector. Simply connect your computer to a TV with an HDMI cable to immerse everyone in the room in all your virtual adventures.
