What is Chromecast?
Chromecast is a thumb-sized media streaming device that plugs into the HDMI port on your TV. Simply use an Android phone, tablet, iPhone®, iPad®, Mac or Windows laptop, or Chromebook to cast your favorite entertainment and apps right to the big screen.
Everything you love, now on your TV
Chromecast works with a growing number of apps, including Eros Now, YouTube and Google Play Movies. Find your favorite apps and discover more at chromecast.com/apps.
For everything else, you can mirror what you see on the small screen to the big screen. If you’re on your laptop, you can cast any website in Chrome; and from your Android phone or tablet, you can mirror your screen to the TV.*
A Whole New Way to TV
With Chromecast, your phone is your personalized remote control. Use the apps you know and love on your phone to search and browse, play, pause, rewind, control the volume and even make playlists. While casting, you’re free to use your phone for other things. And when you’re not casting, you can turn your TV screen into a beautiful backdrop filled with artwork, personal photos, satellite imagery and more.
Your friends and family can cast to the TV using their own phone or tablet, too - with no additional set-up required. Everyone can sit back and enjoy together on the biggest screen in the home.
It’s easy for everyone to enjoy Chromecast. It works with the devices you already own including smartphones, tablets and laptops. Plus, it automatically updates with new features and we’re adding more apps all the time, so your Chromecast keeps getting better.
