How do I cast from my browser to my TV?

It’s really quite easy to get going with this setup; there are only a few preliminary steps.

  1. Check to see if your running at least Chrome 28 or later. If you need to install Chrome or want to update, head to google.com/chrome. Chances are good you’re running the latest release, if not one of the more current. Chrome updates in the background with little interaction needed by the end user.
  2. Make sure your computer or laptop is strong enough to handle the demands.
  3. Download and install the Google Cast extension from the Chrome Web Store. If you’ve already gone through the process of setting up the Chromecast with this computer or laptop you may already have it. Either way, you’ll want to look to the upper right corner of your browser for the Chromecast symbol.
  4. Tap the symbol and cast away!
