The Oculus Quest is an excellent device to bring to parties. It doesn’t require any external sensors or wires, so you can bring it anywhere and pass it around so everyone can play. However, if you want people to see what’s going on inside the headset rather than watch someone flail their arms around, you’ll need a Chromecast device. Even though there is a wide range of supported devices for casting the quest, the best three options are the first three devices that supported casting, and the best of the best is the Chromecast Ultra.
