Once your Chromecast is set up, you can use it with your iPhone to cast content:

  1. Ensure Both Devices Are on the Same Wi-Fi Network:
    • Make sure your iPhone and Chromecast are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
  2. Open the App: Open the app that you want to cast content from. Many popular apps support casting, including YouTube, Netflix, Disney+, Spotify, and more.
  3. Find the Cast Button: Look for the cast icon within the app. It typically looks like a rectangle with Wi-Fi waves in the lower-left or upper-right corner of the app’s interface.
  4. Tap the Cast Icon: Tap the cast icon, and a list of available devices will appear. Select your Chromecast from the list.
  5. Choose What to Cast: After selecting your Chromecast, choose the content you want to cast. It could be a video, music, or even your screen.
  6. Control Playback: Once you start casting, your content will appear on the TV. You can control playback, volume, and more from your iPhone.
  7. Stop Casting: To stop casting, simply tap the cast icon again within the app, and select “Stop Casting” or “Disconnect.”
  8. Screen Mirroring (Optional): If you want to mirror your iPhone’s screen, open the Control Center by swiping down from the upper right corner (iPhone with Face ID) or up from the bottom (iPhone with Home button). Tap the “Screen Mirroring” option, and select your Chromecast from the list.

That’s it! You can now use Google Chromecast with your iPhone to cast or mirror content from various apps and enjoy it on your TV or other compatible devices. Keep in mind that not all apps support casting, but many popular ones do, and Google continues to expand compatibility with new apps over time.
