Have tried multiple times to cast from my Pixelbook to the latest gen Chromecast without success. All the other devices in the home work fine - pixel phone, chromebook - no issues with these. Have rebooted the chromecast device, rebooted my router, nothing works. Engaged with Google help via chat .... and was ultimately told "we'll get back to you with help". Still waiting for that call/email. Anyone have any ideas? 1 Recommended Answer 13 Replies 17 Upvotes

Try each of the following before moving on to the next:
  • Refresh your Media Router:
1. Ensure that you're on the latest version of the Chrome Browser
2. Open a new tab in Chrome.
3. Type chrome://flags/#media-router into the address bar.
4. Check and see if the status is "Enabled". If it is, try "Disabling" and refresh your Chrome Browser.
5. Repeat steps 1-4 but this time Enable the option again.  
6. Look in the upper right hand corner for the "More Options" icon 
7. Click on the "Cast" option. 
  • Make sure you power the Chromecast device with the provided power supply into an open electrical outlet, not using a USB input on your TV or other device.
  • Your computer and Chromecast device should be within ~15 feet (4 meters) of each other. Your Chromecast device should be ~15 feet (4 meters) away from your router, or less.
  • Conduct a Chromecast Factory Data Reset.
  • Reboot your Wi-fi router and/or internet service provider modem or gateway

Still cannot cast my pixelbook desktop to my chromecast.  Both devices are brand new.  TV goes black and then gives error message.  I can, however, cast my desktop from my 7 year old windows computer to chromecast.  Will be returning pixelbook soon if issue isn't resolved.

We also have not had much luck casting from pixelbook to chromecast.   We can successfully mirror the pixelbook screen abet warnings but the audio does not work.  When trying apps that have casting support like tvmucho it simply doesn't work.  All casting works fine from pixel 3s and other android devices so I think that eliminates network and chromecast.  The issue seems to be in the pixelbook.  It is disappointing that a $1,400 pixelbook from Google does not work well with Google's chromecast.
