Setting up the Chromecast was it hard before, but it’s definitely a whole lot easier now that you don’t have to get your computer involved. So here’s how to set up the Chromecast using an iPhone and more specifically the chrome cast app for the iPhone.
Head over to the App Store and search for the Chromecast app download it it’s free.
And then open it you’ll be prompted to accept the standard terms and conditions.
Then chromecast out will search for existing chrome cast devices already connected to your network, if you already have one set up you’ll find automatically, But here we want to set up a new chromecast device selected you’ll be prompted to open settings on your iPhone and manually connect to the adhoc network anyway
After connecting to chromecast switch back over to the chrome castup to complete the setup it’ll find it and hit next as a notice there’s a four digit code to ensure that you have the right device.
Name the device and if you plan on having more than one in your home you might want to give it a location-based named easily detect which device you’re connecting to otherwise I just mean the chromecast next it’s like the WiFi network and yes unfortunate chromecast is not to abandon abled nor the wireless AC but for 35 bucks it’s hard to complain and if you have security enabled on your network as you should into the network key
In chrome cast will finish the setup and that’s it you can open the YouTube app to cast
YouTube videos from your iPhone to your TV you’ll see the new icon to select out tonight looks like this just like the ChromeCast a rise of course it can take a moment to push it to your TV depending on your internet speed distance to your router signal strength.
And all that but the like isn’t too bad but I have noticed though is that sometimes the video will start playing at a degraded quality quickly increases want to have a chance to buffer now the only other current app that supports the chrome cast on iphone is Netflix and once again on the same icon to select the output icon which is a little bit different
than the one that shows up if you have an Apple TV does essentially same thing select chrome cast then select a movie or TV show and it’ll start playing on the big screen announcing a look at the chromecast
Up now that the device is already setup as you can see it doesn’t do much or show very much you can see some very basic device settings or set up a new device.
