If you’re an iPhone or Android user and are looking for ways to Chromecast with Google TV, you’ve come to the right place! 🎉 It’s really simple, requires no cost, and we’re going to dive right into it! 🏊♂️
Chromecast with Google TV on Android
Google is basically Android, making it very straightforward for Android users. Here’s the step-by-step guide:
- Connect your Android phone to a WiFi or hotspot available at your place. In case you don’t have WiFi available, mobile data works too. 📶
Please note, charges may apply for mobile data depending on your network.
- Now, make sure your Google TV is connected to the same network (WiFi or Mobile Data) as your Android phone. To do this, go to your TV’s settings page, navigate to ‘Network Settings’ and connect your TV to the WiFi. 🌐 This is important!
- On your Android device, swipe down and proceed to ‘Settings’. Look for ‘Connection and Sharing Settings’ 🔍 (The name might differ slightly based on your phone’s model).
- In ‘Connection and Sharing Settings’, scroll and look for something called ‘Wireless Display’. This setting allows your phone to automatically detect Google-connected devices, like your Google TV 📺.
- Simply click on the ‘Wireless Display’ and it will start connecting your TV. A prompt will appear on your screen requesting permissions, click ‘Start Now’ and Voila! 🎉 Both devices are now connected. How cool is that! 😎
To disconnect, follow the same process up to ‘Wireless Display’. You will find a ‘Disconnect’ prompt on your screen. Tap on it and you’re done.
Chromecast with Google TV on iPhone
It’s a slightly different process for iPhone users but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! 🍏 Here are the steps to follow:
- Ensure that your iPhone is connected to WiFi or Mobile Data. Be mindful of the possible charges on mobile data depending on your network. 🔋
- Ensure your Google TV is connected to the same network as your iPhone, just like we did for Android. 🌐
- Now, download a free app called ‘Replica’ from the App Store. Since iPhone isn’t part of Android ecosystem, we need this third-party application for casting 📲.
- Once ‘Replica’ is downloaded, open the app. It will automatically detect all the TVs connected to the same network as your iPhone. Select your Google TV from the list 📺.
- ‘Replica’ may ask you to buy the premium version, but you can proceed with the free version. A ‘Start Broadcast’ prompt will appear on screen. Just hit it and you’re connected! 🌟 Please note, charges may apply if you choose to upgrade to ‘Replica’s premium version.
If you need to disconnect, you will find a ‘Stop Broadcast’ prompt at the top-left corner of your screen within the ‘Replica’ app. Just tap on it, a prompt will appear asking if you want to stop the broadcast. Confirm it by tapping ‘Stop’ and you’re done.
That’s it! You can now easily Chromecast with Google TV using both iPhone and Android devices. Remember, these steps are completely free – no hidden charges. So, dive right in and enjoy flawless Chromecast experience on your Google TV. 🌈 Happy Casting! 😍
