  • If you want to mirror the display on your Android to your Chromecast device, you will need to make sure it is connected the same Wi-Fi network as your smartphone. Next you will need to open the Google Home app and select “Cast Screen/Audio” on the menu that appears. After you have done that, select “Cast Screen/Audio” and choose your Chromecast device.
