How to Cast Meta Quest Pro to Samsung Smart TV (2024)

  • Post author:

Virtual reality doesn’t have to be a solo gaming experience. If you know how to connect your Meta Quest Pro to a Samsung Smart TV, you can share your VR experiences on the big screen, allowing your friends and family to see what you see. Consequently, they can join in on the fun as you play some of the most exciting VR games on the headset.

The new Meta Quest Pro comes with a hefty price tag, but it’s also one of the most versatile VR headsets for enthusiasts and businesses alike. It boasts a sleek, visor-like design, hardware capable of utilizing Meta’s mixed reality features, and comes with enhanced ergonomic Touch Pro controllers.

Like the Quest 2, the Pro version has access to an extensive library of games including titles like Beat Saber, Resident Evil 4 VR, SUPERHOT, Golf+, Supernatural, The Climb 2, and more. Chances are, you’ve recently acquired the Quest Pro and want to showcase your VR gameplay on your Samsung TV for the living room audience.

This guide demonstrates various methods of using Meta Quest Pro on a Samsung TV. You can read below to learn more.

Can You Mirror Meta Quest Pro to Samsung Smart TV?

Casting from Meta Quest Pro is possible if you have a Samsung Smart TV model. However, Quest Pro only supports screen mirroring on Smart TVs and streaming devices with built-in Chromecast. New Samsung Smart TVs use either AirPlay or their proprietary casting protocol instead of Chromecast, thus requiring a few additional steps.

Currently, there are two ways to cast the Meta Quest Pro’s screen to a Samsung Smart TV. You can either screen share from your phone and then mirror it to the Samsung TV or connect to your computer’s web browser and mirror the browser tab to the TV.

While some guides emphasize that users can directly cast their Quest VR gameplay to a Samsung Smart TV from the headset, we can confirm that this doesn’t work, at least at the time of writing this article.

We’ve separately discussed each potential method in the following sections.

Connect Meta Quest Pro to Samsung Smart TV via Phone

Before beginning casting, ensure that your Quest Pro, Android/iOS phone, and Samsung TV are all connected to the same Wi-Fi network, preferably on the 5GHz frequency for smooth streaming. You’ll also need the latest version of the Meta Quest app on your Android or iPhone device. Additionally, make sure all your devices have updated firmware.

Once done, here’s how you can connect your Quest Pro to Samsung Smart TV using your phone:

1. Firstly, power on your Quest Pro headset and connect it to your home Wi-Fi network.

2. Open the Meta Quest app on your phone, then tap the Cast icon (VR headset with Wi-Fi symbol) at the top right corner of the main page.

3. If your app prompts for permission to search for available devices on the network, tap “Allow” to proceed.

4. In the pop-up menu “Cast to,” select this phone, then tap the “Start” button on the next screen.

After a few seconds, you should see the casting settings and Quest Pro’s screen recording in the mobile Meta Quest app.

5. If you’re using an Android device, minimize the Meta Quest app, go to settings in the notification panel or app drawer, and find the “Cast” option. Depending on the brand of your device and the version of Android it runs, this might also be labelled as “Screen mirroring,” “Wireless display,” “Smart view,” or something similar.

Once in the casting or mirroring settings, find the name of your Samsung Smart TV model and tap on it. You’ll immediately see a pop-up window at the top right corner of your TV screen requesting permission. Tap Allow to confirm the connection.

6. iPhone users with AirPlay 2-compatible Samsung Smart TVs can swipe up from the top right corner of the screen to open Control Center, tap Screen Mirroring, and select their TV model from the list.

You may need to manually enable AirPlay on your Samsung TV in the Settings > General/Connections > Apple AirPlay menu.

If an AirPlay code appears on your Samsung screen, enter it on your iPhone and tap OK to confirm the connection.

Assuming you’ve correctly followed all the steps, you should see your Android or iPhone screen mirrored on the Samsung Smart TV. Now, you can return to the Meta Quest mobile app and press the “Watch” button to share your Quest Pro viewing on the big screen.

It’s worth noting that this workaround increases latency and reduces video quality, which is inevitable considering the two levels of network streaming involved. That’s why we recommend prioritizing connecting your devices to a 5GHz Wi-Fi network, which should minimize these issues.

Alternatively, you can use a USB-C-HDMI/Lightning-HDMI adapter to connect a compatible Android/iPhone device directly to the Samsung TV for improved streaming quality.

Connect Meta Quest Pro to Samsung TV via Computer

Instead of using a phone, you can share your Quest Pro’s screen with your computer through Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge and mirror the browser tab to your Samsung TV. Before proceeding, make sure your Quest Pro, Windows/macOS computer, and Samsung TV are on the same home network and connected to the same router in some way or another.

1. Open a Chrome or Edge browser tab and navigate to on your computer. Also, sign in to your Facebook/Meta account (linked to your Quest Pro) if you haven’t already.

2. Power on your Quest Pro and press the Quest button on the right Touch Pro controller to open the universal menu.

3. Select the camera icon, then click the “Casting” tile in the subsequent menu.

4. In the “Casting from this headset” menu, select “Computer” and click “Next.” Once you confirm the connection, you should see your Quest Pro on the browser tab.

5. On your computer, click the three-dot icon (⋮) next to the search bar in your Chrome browser, then select Cast from the context menu.

If you’re using Edge, click the ellipsis icon (⋯), hover over More tools, and select “Cast media to the device.”

6. In the pop-up window, click “Sources” and choose “Cast tab.” Then select your Samsung Smart TV model from the list.

7. On your Samsung TV, click “Allow” to permit the computer to display the browser tab on the big screen.

That’s it! Now, your Samsung Smart TV should display the feed from Meta Quest Pro. When you want to stop casting, go back to the camera menu on your Quest Pro, select Casting, and press where it says “Stop casting.”

Again, since you’re streaming a heavily compressed version of your Quest Pro’s channel and then transmitting it to your Samsung Smart TV as another compressed stream, quality and latency may significantly decrease. Connecting your devices to a 5GHz Wi-Fi network should partially alleviate this issue, but the best solution is to connect your PC or laptop to the Samsung TV using an HDMI cable.

Connect Meta Quest Pro to Samsung Smart TV via Chromecast Device

Meta Quest Pro inherently supports casting to Chromecast devices, including TVs/streaming devices with built-in Chromecast capabilities.

Suppose you have an older model Samsung TV that doesn’t connect to the internet or lacks any “smart” features. In that case, a Chromecast dongle is an excellent solution, plugging into your TV’s HDMI port and enabling casting functionality on your otherwise dumb TV.

Currently, you can find Chromecast 2nd generation, Chromecast Ultra, Chromecast with Google TV, or a similar Android TV stick with built-in Chromecast at a reasonably affordable price. Once you connect it to your TV and link it to your Wi-Fi network, it’s the best way to cast your Quest Pro stream to the Samsung screen.

To cast using the headset, navigate to the universal menu, select “Sharing,” click the “Casting” tile, and choose the Chromecast device under “Available devices.”

To do this in the Meta Quest mobile app, go to the Cast button, select the Chromecast-supported device from the list, and hit “Start.”


This guide has outlined three unique methods for connecting Meta Quest Pro to a Samsung Smart TV. It’s worth noting that casting can sometimes affect in-game performance and increase battery consumption.

If you’re unable to connect your Quest Pro and casting device, check your home router settings or try another network. Alternatively, reboot all your devices (including the Wi-Fi router if necessary), reinstall the Meta Quest app if needed, and try again.
