What is Chromecast?
According to Wikipedia,
Chromecast is a line of digital media players developed by Google.
The devices, designed as small dongles, enable users with a mobile device or personal computer to play Internet-streamed audio-visual content on a high-definition television or home audio system through mobile and web apps that support Google Cast technology.
Google Chromecast is an amazing device that lets you cast videos from mobile devices to your TV over Wi-Fi. It comes in different sizes and models, 1st gen, 2nd gen, 3rd gen, Chromecast Ultra and Ultra 4k, etc.
Its mainly used to cast popular streaming websites and apps such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, HBO, YouTube among others.
These services have in-built support for Chromecast which comes in handy if you want to cast your videos on TV.
Chromecast, Android, and iOS devices
If you have an Android device, you’re in luck. Since Android and Chromecast are both owned by Google, they work really well with each other. In fact, any good Android phone comes with a built-in feature for casting.
On iOS, however, its a little tricky. As you may have guessed, Apple and Google don’t usually go hand in hand with most stuff, and Chromecast is no different.
Therefore, if you want to mirror iPhone to Chromecast, you’ll have to improvise.

Hello, Hubert. Screen recording isn’t saved when you mirror your videos using the screen mirror for chromecast app. However, if you record your screen without the app using the screen recording button in your control center, then it should save it to your camera roll.
Good app but does not work with Sky Go
Thanks for sharing your feedback. Are you unable to mirror the Sky Go app? Does it interrupt the cast? Do you get an error?
Why does it keep saying live broadcast timing out after 1 min ?
Hi. Please update your app to the latest version. The issue has been fixed. Thanks.
I only just downloaded the app and it is still happening on 1.0.17 (220.127.116.11)
Hi. Its a restriction of the free version. You can upgrade to Pro to remove the 1 minute restriction. Thanks.
Good app but bare minimum features in the free version- only audio casting, no video casting.. thats so unfair.
Any free app that does the whole thing?
Hi. Thanks for contacting. You should be able to mirror both audio and video. Please follow the video tutorial below.
I could only get video casting, not audio unless I upgraded to the paid version.
Hi. Audio is only supported in the paid version of the app.
Hi, just try this app. But when I disconnect and want to see Netflix directly on my chrome cast, I still have a little screen like it’s my iPhone screen….? What should I do?
Hi. Disconnect the Chromecast device from the power source and wait for 10 seconds. Then plug it back and try casting from Netflix again. Thanks.
Chromcast 2 – Iphone SE
I just paid for the advanced features to be able to 1. cast at 1080p 2. cast sound so I can host a kids party.
It works fine until I run Skype and make a video call, as soon as the call connects it freezes and looses the connection.
It seems that I paid $28 for nothing!
Am I missing anything here or is Skype a problem?
Hi. We will check this issue at our end. Thanks for reporting.
doesn’t work with Apple TV+. The app prevents screen mirroring. Tested.
Hi. You can’t cast Apple TV+ content to your Chromecast from an iPhone or iPad because the Apple TV app only offers an AirPlay option. You can, however cast from a computer/laptop by signing in to your Apple TV+ account at tv.apple.com.
Hi I got less than a minute then it said free session expired
You can try using this app: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/streamer-for-chromecast/id1151425002
