How to Setup & Use Chromecast With Android Phone [Guide]

Thanks to the Chromecast, we can enjoy watching our favorite TV shows and movies without having to watch them in a small screen. It can be connected to any television with an HDMI port and is very easy and simple in use. So let’s see how we can connect our Chromecast with our Android device!

First of all, you should buy a Chromecast dongle. This small dongle plugs directly to the HDMI port of your TV, allowing you to watch Netflix/Hulu shows, YouTube videos or other content on your television screen.

Once you have your Chromecast dongle ready, plug it into the HDMI port of your TV and make sure that your TV is connected to the same Wi-Fi network that your Android phone is connected.

Now, we need to download and install three apps: Google Home app, Chromecast app and Netflix or any other video streaming service of your choice . It’s very important that you have all of these apps on your phone before you start the setup process.

Now it’s time to start the Chromecast app on your phone and follow the setup process. The first screen will ask you what is your Wi-Fi network. Enter any name for the network and type in the password, then click “Next”.

The next step is choosing which device is your TV and clicking it. If you have more than one television, simply select the correct one.

If you have already installed the Netflix app on your Android phone (or any other video streaming service that you want to use with Chromecast), it will appear now in this list and you’ll be able to choose it. If not, go ahead and download it from Google Play Store .

In the end, you’ll need to enable Spatial audio from Netflix or any other streaming app that uses this option. In the Netflix mobile application, go into “Settings” and afterwards into “Audio & Subtitles”, then make sure that “Spatial playback” is on.

After all of these steps, try playing a Netflix video, for example. If your connection is working, you will see a popup window asking you to “Cast this video”. Click it and select the Chromecast device that has just been detected by your phone.

Now, if everything went right, you can enjoy watching Netflix videos on your big screen TV with awesome image quality!
