Cast a Chrome tab on your TV

You can use a Chromecast device to show a Chrome tab or your screen on your TV.

You can show most web content. Some plugins won't work, like Silverlight, QuickTime, and VLC.

To show your screen on your TV, you’ll need:

Cast your entire Android screen

  1. On your Android phone or tablet, open the Settings appSettings icon.
  2. Tap Connected devices and then Cast and then Select your Chromecast device.
  3. Your Android screen will now show on your Chromecast device. You can now see tabs on Chrome on your Chromecast.
  4. When you're done, tap Settings and then Connected devices and then Cast and then Select your Chromecast device and then Disconnect. Your Chromecast will disconnect and your Android screen will no longer be mirrored.

Cast videos and media

On the video or media you're watching, click Cast Cast. For example, learn how to cast from YouTube.
