Google Chromecast is designed to make the most of the apps and entertainment already on your phone. Turn your TV into a smart TV to enjoy shows, movies, live TV, YouTube, photos, and more on the big screen. With Chromecast, it’s all just a tap away from all of your family’s devices. Chromecast requires a TV with an HDMI port, a Wi-Fi network, and a compatible (Android, iOS, Windows, or Mac OS) computer or mobile device. Here’s how to use Chromecast:

  1. Connect the Chromecast device to your TV or display device using an HDMI cable and connect the power cord to an electrical outlet.
  2. Download and install the Google Home app on your phone or tablet.
  3. Make sure your phone or tablet is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your Chromecast device.
  4. Open the Google Home app and select “Add” to add your Chromecast device to the app.
  5. Follow the prompts to set up your Chromecast device, including giving it a name.
  6. Once your Chromecast device is set up, you can start streaming content. Open an app that supports Chromecast, such as Netflix or YouTube, on your phone or tablet.
  7. Tap the Cast icon (a square with three curved lines in the lower-left corner) in the app and select your Chromecast device.
  8. The content should start streaming on your TV or display device.

You can also use Chromecast to mirror your phone or tablet screen onto your TV or display device. Simply select the Cast Screen/Audio option in the Google Home app and select your Chromecast device. Your phone or tablet screen should appear on your TV or display device.
