Using your tablet will work basically the same way,

you'll need to go to the "app store" on your tablet and then from there you'll install the chromecast app,

with that app, you'll then be able to mirror from many (but not all) apps to the chromecast.

Let me know if that works for you.

Thanks,

Nathan

What about the full tablet screen like on a phone or Laptop? I'd like t place a button extention on the google home app browser.
Android Device Expert: p0llinate, Engineer replied 4 months ago

Every app is different, some support mirroring, some do not. Most google based apps will, but you'll have to test it on your particular tablet to see for sure. I would expect it to work though.

Can I use apps designed for pones on my tablet. Both my phone and tablet are Samsung Galaxy.
Android Device Expert: p0llinate, Engineer replied 4 months ago

Oh sorry I misunderstood,

in general, yes you can, they will just be stretched to fill the screen if there is not a tablet specific version

I'll try and see will it work. Oh and some say I need a Smart TV.
Android Device Expert: p0llinate, Engineer replied 4 months ago

The chromecast is fine for this purpose if you have that already then you don't need a smart tv

To be clear I want to cast my whole tablet screen I know how to on my pc.
Android Device Expert: p0llinate, Engineer replied 4 months ago

Yes I understand, and you can cast specific screens/apps from the tablet to the chromecast.

If your tab has a mirroring function it should work to the chromecast as well.

Android Device Expert: p0llinate, Engineer replied 4 months ago

You need to install the chromecast app on the tablet.

Do you remote access tablets?
Android Device Expert: p0llinate, Engineer replied 4 months ago

No it would not be something I could fix remotely. Really though it is a very simple process to go into the app store and install the chromecast app.

There are soo many chromecast apps.
Android Device Expert: p0llinate, Engineer replied 4 months ago

If so you want the google home app

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I have installed that as well. Only see the apps compatible with the chromecast.
Android Device Expert: p0llinate, Engineer replied 4 months ago

That app should work then, with it installed go into the tablet settings and look for the slider tab for mirroring (or swipe up from the bottom of the screen and tap it)
