Hey Chromecasters!


Congratulations on your new Chromecast! It’s everything you love, now on your TV!


With Chromecast, you can easily enjoy your favorite online entertainment on your HDTV—movies, TV shows, music, and more from Netflix, YouTube, Google Play, and Chrome. No more huddling around small screens and tiny speakers. Plus, Chromecast automatically updates to work with a growing number of apps (hello HBO Go and Hulu!).


But you already knew that, right? Before you get started (and post!) take a look at some of the most commonly asked questions about and reported issues with Chromecast -- maybe yours is below! If not, please remember to search the group prior to posting.



Seeing an error message not mentioned above? Use this troubleshooter to help identify the issue.


Welcome to the family-- we’re so happy you’re here!

Jacky and the Chromecast Team

    Hi, James. The link you posted leads to "No Cast icon on Youtube.com," not to information on no Cast icon appearing in the YouTube app on Android or iOS devices.
