    How to Cast from Google Chrome to TV to View Videos, Websites, and More on a Bigger Screen It's easy to see the Internet on TV via the Google Chrome browser. You can cast Google Chrome to your TV via your browser's “Cast…” menu, available on PC, Mac or Chromebook computers and Android phones.


    How to see Chrome Browser on TV to view videos, websites and more on a bigger screen. If you have a Chromecast, you can cast almost any web page; other streaming devices will only support certain sites like YouTube or Netflix.



    Before casting Chrome to your TV, make sure your streaming device is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your computer or phone. So let's see how to cast the Chrome tabs to the TV.

    We all know that there are several ways to cast from phone to TV, but what you may not know is that you can also cast from computer to TV.


    If you use Google Chrome, you can cast websites from your browser to almost any streaming device. All you have to do is use the “Cast…” menu, which you can find in Chrome's three-dot “kebab” menu.

    However, there are some caveats in this regard. Unless you are using a Google Chromecast, you cannot stream any web page; most devices, like Roku, will only accept video sites like YouTube and Netflix. A Chromecast, however, can cast almost any website to the TV, as well as certain files.

    You'll also need to make sure your phone or computer (no matter which device you're casting from) is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your streaming device. Here's how to cast from Google Chrome to your TV.




    How to cast from Google Chrome to TV

    Again, first make sure your computer or Android phone is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your streaming device.

    1. Open Google Chrome and go to the page you want to cast to TV. In the upper right corner of the screen, click or tap the three-dot menu.

    2. From the menu, select "Cast ..."


    3. A new menu will appear. Google Chrome will scan your Wi-Fi network for devices it can connect to - within a few moments, you should see your devices appear. If they don't show up, try restarting your streaming device and browser.

    4. At the bottom of this menu, there is a small drop-down menu called “Sources”. Click here to choose what you want to broadcast:

    • You choose "Transmit tab " to broadcast only the tab you are currently on. This is what you should choose for most streaming devices.
    • You choose "Broadcast Desktop " to share your screen on TV. Only Chromecasts can do this.
    • You choose "Send file " to stream any files you have saved on your computer. Again, this is exclusive to Chromecast.

    5. After deciding what to stream, select your streaming device from the list. Within moments, the content should appear on the TV screen.


    If the device you want says "Unsupported Source" below it, it means it cannot stream whatever you are trying to stream.
