Posted by

If you want to watch YouTube videos on a bigger screen, such as Android TV, YouTube natively supports the casting feature. That means no need to install any other software on your Android phone to beam on a bigger screen.

To cast a Youtube video from your Android smartphone to an external TV or PC, you will need the following:-

  • Phone running Android 4.4 (KitKat) or higher.
  • A device with Google Cast technology enabled that can accept connections, such as Android TV, Fire TV, Roku, or Xbox.
  • Wi-Fi connection to connect your both devices, phone, and SmartTV.

Note: Your phone and other media such as SmartTV should be connected with the same Wi-Fi network; otherwise, Casting will not work.

Once you are ready with the requirements mentioned above, you can easily share your Android phone display with a compatible Wi-Fi-enabled device.
