How to Chromecast from iPad to stream to a TV or display

Published

Chromecast is the difference between your TV becoming a relic, or your TV serving as a platform for all your favorite shows, movies, and music.

If your television has an HDMI port and you have an iPad, you are ready to stream all sorts of media to the TV. All you need is a Chromecast dongle and a few minutes of free time to set everything up.

In order to Chromecast from an iPad, you need a Google account and the Google Home app. Once you have downloaded Google Home from the App Store, connect your Chromecast dongle to a power source and plug it into the HDMI port on your TV.

Before we go further, make sure your TV screen is tuned to that HDMI port – hours have been wasted by toggling to the wrong TV input.

3. Check to make sure that the same code displays on both your iPad and TV screen, then hit Yes.

4. Name your Chromecast (usually choosing a name that refers to its physical location is best) and set privacy options as you’d like.

5. Connect the Chromecast device to Wi-Fi, making sure you are connecting it to the same network as your iPad.

Once you enter the Wi-Fi password, you should be all set.

Open an app like Netflix on your iPad and start a show. In the top left corner, you will see the Chromecast icon.
