How To Setup Google Chromecast On Your Television?

Published

on

setup-google-chromecast

The “Breakfast With Sundar Pichai” Google event that happened a few days back, gave us some great new releases.

Namely the new Nexus 7 Android tablet, Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and the Google Chromecast. We were already expecting the release of the next generation Nexus 7 and the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean announcement.

However, the announcement of the Google Chrome cast dongle was by surprise.

And indeed, it received a great amount of positive response from people around the globe. And within just a few hours of the announcement, many online stores went out of stock for supplying the Google Chromecast Dongle.

And this itself shows, how positively the new dongle was welcomed by users.

The Google Chromecast Dongle is a simple USB Device, that can turn any TV into a Smart TV [if it has a HDMI/USB port]. By using the Google Chromecast Dongle, you can play and stream any video from your YouTube or Netflix account directly to your Television, without having any cables or any other devices hanging around, just using the Google Chromecast Dongle.

If you've recently purchased the Google Chromecast Dongle and if you are in need of some online tutorial on how to start using this Google Chromecast Dongle, then here we are to help you out.

Today, we're here with a detailed tutorial on how to install and start using this Google Chromecast.

How Does The Google Chromecast Function?

Before we go through the setup process of the Google Chromecast, we should know that how does this dongle function.

Well, the Google Chromecast dongle is WIFI enabled. Hence during the setup process, you'll need to connect it to your WIFI network, to enjoy its functionality.

After you connect your Google Chromecast using your WIFI network, anyone who uses the same WIFI connection can stream their content directly through your Television.

So anyone using a Chromecast supported application can stream their content through your Television, provided that they're connected to the same WIFI network as your Chromecast dongle.

You can stream videos from YouTube, Netflix or even using the Chrome extension.

And using the chrome extension, you can even browse the web through your television and perform any apparent online task. As the API for the Google Chromecast is available for developers, you can see more and more applications with Google Chromecast support, in the near future.

What Do You Get With Your Google Chromecast Package?

Once you receive your Google Chromecast Package, below are the things that you can find inside your package box:

  • The Chromecast HDMI Dongle.
  • A USB Power adaptor.
  • An external adapter plug.

As you might have noticed, you also receive an external USB power cable, other than your Google Chromecast Dongle. Its because the Chromecast dongle has an HDMI power port, and some televisions do not have an electric-powered HDMI port.

Which means, these HDMI ports won't be able to power the dongle.  In such cases, you can use the external electric power adaptor that's included, to run the Google Chromecast dongle.

But, if you have an electric powered HDMI port on your television, you can plug in the dongle directly, without the need of an external power adaptor.

How To Setup Google Chromecast On Your Television?

Now let's move on to the setup process. Actually, setting up your Google Chromecast Dongle is a very easy task and can be performed under 5 minutes!

Yet if you're confused on how to set up Google Chromecast on your Television, then below is the detailed tutorial on how to set up Google Chromecast on your Television:

  • First of all, connect the Google Chromecast Dongle to your Television. You can refer to the above section to know how to do so.
  • Now, most probably your Television must have automatically detected the Google Chromecast. Else, change the HDMI input from your Television manually.
  • And now, you need to follow through the on-screen instructions.
  • During the setup process, first, you'll be asked to name your Chromecast dongle. This name must be chosen while streaming the content to your Television.
  • And then, you'll be prompted to connect the Chromecast dongle to your home WIFI network. You'll need to connect your Smartphone or any other devices to the same WIFI network as your Chromecast dongle, in order to stream the content.
  • And finally, complete up your setup process and you're good to go!

Again, the streaming speed will depend on your internet connection speed.
