Hey everyone!

Are you having issues casting apps to your TV when using Chromecast? You might want to check you have a few of these points done, you might be missing one of these simple steps. Before you cast to your TV, check that:

  • you are connected to Wi-Fi, and not to mobile internet.
  • The Cromecast, and your smartphone, tablet or computer are using the same Wi-Fi network.
  • Ensure that the app has been updated to its latest version. The most recent update might have brought Chromecast support, while previous versions may still not have it. Go to the Google Play Store (or Apple App Store if you have an iPhone or iPad), and check for updates. Update the app if need be.

If you have checked all of these steps, then the issue could be coming from the individual apps and something you aren't doing right. Check the app's Q&A or help section if you need guidance, or email the developer directly if there is a bug.

I hope that has helped you! :)
