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 favourite entertainment and apps right onto the big screen.**
Everything you love, now on your TV
Chromecast works with a growing number of apps. Find your favourite 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 personalised remote control. You can use it 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.
Your friends and family can cast to the TV using their own phone or tablet too – with no additional setup required. Everyone can sit back and enjoy together on the biggest screen in the home.
And when you’re not casting, the TV screen becomes a beautiful backdrop filled with images you can customise. Learn how to set up this feature at chromecast.com/backdrop.
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. It takes only a few minutes to set up, and at £30*, it’s affordable to get one for every HDTV in the house.
Your friends and family can cast to the TV using their own phone or tablet, too. With the guest mode feature, they don't even need to connect to your Wi-Fi. Everyone can sit back and enjoy together on the biggest screen in the home.
