- You can throw Google Chrome to your TV via your browser’s “Cast …” menu, which is available on PC, Mac or Chromebook computers and Android phones.
- If you have a Chromecast, you can cast almost any web page; other streaming devices only support certain sites like YouTube or Netflix.
- Before you launch Chrome to your TV, make sure your streaming device is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your computer or phone.

We all know that there are several ways to throw from your phone to your TV ̵
If you use Google Chrome, you can throw websites from your browser to almost any streaming device. All you have to do is use the “Cast …” menu, which can be found in Chrome’s three-point “kebab” menu.
However, there are some reservations about this. Unless you use a Google Chromecast, you can not stream any web page; most devices, like Rokus, only accept video sites like YouTube and Netflix. However, a Chromecast can throw almost any website to your TV as well as certain files.
You also need to make sure your phone or computer (whichever device you cast from) is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your streaming device.

How to cast from Google Chrome to your 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 your TV. Click or tap the three-point menu at the top right of the screen.
2. From the menu, select “Cast …”
3. A new menu appears. Google Chrome scans your Wi-Fi network for devices that it can connect to – within a few moments you should see your devices appear. If they do not appear, try restarting your streaming device and browser.
4. At the bottom of this menu is a small drop-down menu labeled “Sources”. Click on this to choose what you want to cast:
- Select “Cast tabs “ to just drop the tab you are currently in. This is what you should choose for most streaming devices.
- Select “Cast desktop ” to share the screen on the TV. Only Chromecasts can do this.
- Select “Cast fil ” to throw away files you have stored on your computer. Again, this is exclusive to Chromecast.
5. Once you have decided what you want to throw away, select your streaming device from the list. Within a few moments, the content should be displayed on the TV screen.
If the device you want says “Source is not supported” below it, it means it cannot stream what you are trying to throw at it.
