Chromecast (Black)


Take your entertainment to the big screen. Stream what you love from your favorite devices to your HDTV.

Your device is the remote

Use your phone, tablet, or laptop¹ to play, pause, and adjust the volume on entertainment you stream to your TV. While you’re streaming, you can also multitask — take calls or send messages without interrupting what’s playing.

Unlimited entertainment on the big screen

Chromecast works with the apps² you love, like Netflix, YouTube, Google Play, and more. Choose from countless movies and TV shows, millions of songs, sports events, and games.³ Just tap the Cast button to start streaming to your TV.

Mirror your Android phone or Chrome browser

See anything on your Android phone or tablet on your TV, or use your laptop to cast any website from the Chrome browser. If it’s online, you can cast it.⁴

Smooth, steady streaming

Chromecast keeps video resolution high and buffering low with 2.4/5GHz Wi-Fi support and a built-in adaptive antenna system. And because your content is streamed straight from the cloud, your movies and TV shows play without interruption, even if you and your phone leave the room.

Setup is easy

1. Plug Chromecast into the power source and your TV’s HDMI, then select the HDMI input on your TV.

2. Download the Google Home app and follow the instructions.

3. Open a Chromecast-compatible app and tap the Cast button.

Presto — your entertainment goes from the small screen to the big screen.
