Setting up your Chromecast
You can set up your Chromecast in a snap using either an Android or iOS phone or tablet or a Mac, Windows or Chromebook computer running Chrome 28 or higher. You only need to set up your Chromecast once - you can cast from additional supported devices without having to set up Chromecast again. Before you begin the setup process, make sure you are connected to a 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi network.

Common Issues: Chromecast not detected on device
Chromecast works mainly with a 2.4Ghz connection on a b/g/n network. If you are using a 5Ghz network or a 802.11AC connection, there will be possible issues with your device detecting your Chromecast.
