How to Install and Setup Chromecast on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch

Install and Setup Chromecast on Your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch

Open the App Store and search for the Chromecast app. It's Free.

Click the Download from the Cloud icon and wait for it to download. When it's done downloading it will have the “Open” button instead of the Cloud icon or “Free”.

 



 

 

When downloaded you can click “Open” to get started.

 

 


Click “Accept” to accept the policy and terms.

 

 

 

 

You can setup your new Chromecast, or setup an existing Chromecast to work with your iOS device if you already set it up with your computer or other device.

 

 

 

 


 

This next part is probably the trickiest part. You have to disconnect from your wifi network by connecting to the Chromecast, which is, at this point, on its own little lonely network. Once connected you change the Chromecasts network settings so that it will be on your wifi network. Then you will be able to connect with it when you are on your own home network.

 



 

 

 

Switch on your iOS device to “Settings” and then “Wi-Fi”.
Switch from your regular wifi network to the Chromecastxxxx (xxxx are some numbers) network. 

 



 

 

 

Switch back to the Chromecast app once connected and you should get the happy “Chromecast found!” message. Click “Next”.

 

 



 

 

So now is the time to turn on your TV if you haven't already and find the proper HDMI input so that you get the Chromecast verify screen on your TV. When you have that screen on your TV press “Next”.

 



 

 

Now you have to enter your country. Hopefully yours is there. Select it.

 


And now you get to name your Chromecast. Oh the Excitement!

 

 



 

 

 

And Finally comes the Final Network Settings. Select your network. It should be listed. Enter the wifi password. Passwords are case sensitive so keep that in mind. These days with everyone trying to save cell data, people with smartphones or tablets tend to remember their wifi passwords, or at least write them down somewhere safe. Press “Setup” and you should be on your way...

 

 

 



 

Success! Now all you need to do is add some apps that support Chromecast. Don't bother going to the Chrome store, as it's not yet working for iOS devices. Use the Apple App store to find Youtube, Spotify, Netflix, Pandora and all the other compatible apps.
