How to Connect Bluetooth Headphones to Your Chromecast: A Step-by-Step Guide

Connect Bluetooth Headphones to Chromecast: Step-by-Step Guide

Have you ever wondered how to connect Bluetooth headphones to your Chromecast? This guide will show you all the different methods of doing it. Connecting headphones to your Chromecast is beneficial in many ways—it can help you listen to your TV without any interruptions, turn the volume up without disturbing anyone, and not miss anything while moving around the house. 😊 Please subscribe for more tech tips.


Connecting via TV’s Bluetooth

If your TV has built-in Bluetooth, you will be able to connect your headphones to it. Start by finding Bluetooth settings in your TV’s menu, then get your headphones into ‘Pairing mode’. Once the headphones appear on your TV’s Bluetooth list, select them, and you’re good to go. 🎵 Easy peasy!


Connecting via a Bluetooth Transmitter

If your TV does not have Bluetooth, or if you wish to connect two headphones at the same time, you can use a Bluetooth transmitter. This works with wireless headphones that have their own transmitter, and with any TV that offers audio output options like digital optical, AUX or RCA. Plus, you can often pair another set of Bluetooth headphones too! Some setups even let your soundbar or AV receiver work in tandem. Just plug the transmitter into your TV’s audio output port, power up your headphones and transmitter, and enjoy! 🎧 Fantastic!


Connecting to Chromecast with Google TV

This method works only with the newest Chromecast model that comes with Google TV. Get your headphones into Bluetooth pairing mode, go to Google TV’s Home Screen, access the Settings menu, and navigate to ‘Remote and Accessories’. Here, click on ‘Pair Remote or Accessory’, wait for your headphones to appear in the list, select them to connect, and you are all set! 🔥Great job!

If you have performed all the steps correctly but still cannot hear sound, do not worry. There may be some other issue at play which we cover in separate videos. Feel free to leave your questions in the comments section – we will get back to you within 24 hours. 👍 You’re not alone!
