Below are the steps which you need to perform :-

Step 1: Plug in your Chromecast device

Plug Chromecast into your TV, then connect the USB power cable to your Chromecast. Then either plug the other end of the USB power cable into an open USB port on your TV OR into the included power adapter which you will then plug into a power outlet. Note: Only use the provided AC adapter.

Step 2: Connect your Chromecast device

Double check that the Chromecast and the mobile device, tablet, or laptop you are using to set up Chromecast with are both on the same Wi-Fi network.

Step 3: Download the Google Home app

On your mobile device, tablet, or laptop, download the Google Home app

Step 4: Set up Chromecast

Follow these simple Chromecast setup instructions.

Step 5: Cast content

Learn how to cast from Chrome to your TV or cast from Chromecast-enabled apps to your TV.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
