What is Chromecast?
Chromecast is a media streaming device that plugs into the HDMI port on your TV. Simply use your mobile device and the TV you already own to cast your favorite TV shows, movies, music, sports, games and more. Chromecast works with iPhone®, iPad®, Android phone and tablet, Mac® and Windows® laptop, and Chromebook.
A better way to get video, music, and games to your TV
Your phone is a simple, powerful remote. Open the mobile apps you already know and love to quickly access things like your TV shows, your playlists, your queues. No new log-ins or downloads required
Simply tap the Cast button to see your favorite content on the big screen.
By using your phone, it's easy to search, browse, queue and control the TV from anywhere in the home. And you can still keep using your phone for other things without disrupting what's playing or draining your battery.
Unlimited entertainment, all on your schedule
With Chromecast, you're in command. Choose from over 200,000 TV shows & movies, 30 million songs, plus radio, sports, games, and more. Discover a range of free, subscription or paid content from thousands of apps.
Stream super fast
Chromecast streams content from the cloud, so you get the highest quality 1080p HD video and surround sound. With 2.4 / 5GHz WiFi support and an adaptive antenna system built in, it keeps video resolution high and buffering low.
Discover new entertainment
The Chromecast app is your one-stop shop for exploring what you can do on Chromecast. Easily browse featured content across your apps and search for where you can watch your favorite movies and TV shows. Plus, it's your central place for finding the latest on new apps, offers, and new features added to your Chromecast.

Mirror your Android screen
Cast exactly what you see on your Android phone or tablet screen to the TV. Your vacation photos and videos, favorite social media sites, presentations and more-now bigger than ever.
Mirror any website
If you can find it online, you can see it on your TV. See whatever's on your laptop's Chrome browser on the big screen.
Game on, game big
