Chromecast is a series of adapters for TVs that can be connected to the HDMI port of the TV to add smart functions to the TV, allowing users to play content such as videos, music and photos on the TV.
Disney Plus can be cast on your TV through Chromecast once you have a supported Chromecast device, TV, and mobile device/PC. The following are the Chromecast devices and models that Disney+ supports:
- Google Chromecast (Version 1 and newer)
- Google Nest Hub and Nest Hub Max
- Android TV devices (with built-in Chromecast)
- Chromecast with Google TV
As there isn't a Chromecast Disney Plus app in the market, so how does it work? Connect your Chromecast to your TV, and then cast Disney+ from your phone's Disney+ app or your computer's Chrome web browser. Please make sure your Chromecast and your mobile device/computer are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
As mentioned earlier, there are two methods to watch Disney Plus with a Chromecast device, and we'll provide a detailed guide next.
Through Mobile Devices
Step 1 Run the Disney Plus app on your iPhone, iPad, or Android. (If you haven't downloaded it yet, download the latest version of the program from the App Store or Play Store.)
Step 2 Log into your Disney Plus account and find the video you want to play.
Step 3 Tap on the "Cast" icon in the upper right of the screen, which is a square icon with three curved lines at the bottom. The currently available Chromecast devices will then be displayed.
Step 4 Select the Chromecast device that is connected to your TV. And now you can stream Disney Plus videos and movies on your TV. You can continue to use your mobile device to do other things, which will not affect the casting, as long as you don't end the Disney+ app.
It is available to stop casting at any time, or pause it. Click the "Cast" icon again and tap on the "Stop Casting" button. You can also pause the playback or drag the progress bar in this interface.
Using Chrome is the easiest method to cast Disney Plus to TV as Chrome web browser works both on Windows and Mac computers.
Step 1 Go to disneyplus.com using the Chrome web browser and sign into your Disney Plus account. Search and find the video you want to play.
Step 2 Click on the 3 dots icon in the upper right of the web and choose the "Cast" tab.
Step 3 Then, a pop-up window will appear in Chrome and list all accessible Chromecast devices. Select the device that you are using and cast your PC screen to TV.
If you want to stop casting, click on the "Cast" icon on the right of the address bar, and then choose "Stop casting".
Sometimes you may see messages like this: "Disney+ To Be Removed From..." or "Disney+ To Be No Longer Be Available On...". This means that Disney Plus will no longer support some older devices, either because fewer people are using them and the app development has stopped or the device's hardware will not be able to support newer features.
