Cast from Android Phone or Tablet

Screen Cast on Android

What does ‘Cast” do?  When you Cast from Android phone or tablet, you are sending the screen image to another device, usually a TV.  Many new TV models have the ability to receive a Cast image from another device and display it on the TV.  You may need to open the Settings on the TV to turn on the function to receive a Cast image.

Do you want to see what is on your Android phone or tablet on your TV?  Fortunately, Android devices make it easy to do a cast from Android.

If your TV doesn’t have the ability to Cast built-in, then you can purchase a Chromecast device and plug it into the HDMI port on the TV.

  • After you have installed the Chromecast on your TV, be sure the USB power supply is plugged in.
  • Next, download Google Home App from Google Play to your Android phone or tablet.
  • Open the Google Home App and select the Nearby device you want to cast to (Chromecast or your TV)
  • Chromecast also uses your WiFi network, so select which network you want to use.  You should have your Android device and Chromecast connected to the same network.
  • Not all Android apps will support Casting the image, so don’t be surprised if you open an app and it doesn’t show up on your TV.

Setup a wireless connection between your Android device and your TV using WiFi “Wireless Connection between Android and TV“.
