  • The most up-to-date Google Chrome version.

Make sure if you have Nest Audio in your home to use it with your Chromecast while casting on your devices!

Now that you have all your pre-requisites, you can decide which device you want to cast from.

Casting With a Laptop or PC

Casting With An iOS Device

Using an iPad or an iPhone will not prevent you from casting to Chromecast, but it does make it slightly more difficult. In order to cast to Chromecast on an iOS-enabled device, you will need to employ the help of a third-party app. Read these instructions to learn the best way to cast with an iPhone or iPad:

  • Use this app to connect your device to the TV via Chromecast.
  • Click ‘mirroring’ to duplicate your screen onto your TV screen.

My Screen Mirroring is Not Working

A common issue that can occur while casting to your TV with Chromecast is that your screen mirroring will stop working in the middle of a show. This can be frustrating and act as a deterrent for using the feature at all. Here are some of the most common reasons this occurs:

  • The connection between the TV and the device you are casting from is too weak. Try to bring the casting device closer to your TV for a better signal.
  • Your WiFi connection is not strong enough. A weak WiFi signal can cause the program to malfunction and screen mirroring to halt completely. Try upgrading your internet. or buying a WiFi extender to help increase your signal strength.
  • Your device is not properly up to date. If your Chrome or casting device is out of date, it may not properly function. Update it to the newest software version and then try again.

Cast Away

Casting on your TV is a really convenient way to enjoy a show on a large screen that is being streamed from a smaller device. More people can enjoy it, but the picture quality tends to be better too. Relax, kick back, and enjoy your Chromecast!
