The device is small, about the size of a thumb drive, and plugs into the HDMI port on your TV, just like Apple’s lightning AV Adapter. Once connected to your Wi-Fi network, you can use it to stream movies, TV shows, music, and more.

Screen mirroring with Chromecast only works with Chromecast-enabled apps like

  • TV and movie streaming apps - Netflix, Prime Video, Hulu, etc.
  • Music apps - Apple Music, Spotify, etc.
  • Photo and video apps> - YouTube, Google Chrome, Google Photos, etc.
  • Sports steaming apps - Man United official app, NHL, etc.


  • Your iPhone and Samsung TV must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
  • Your Samsung TV must have Chromecast built-in. Examples of Samsung TVs with Chromecast built-in include - Samsung QLED series, Samsung Q series (Q7, Q8, and Q9), and Samsung TU8500.

To cast from Chromecast-enabled apps from your iPhone to a Samsung TV:

  1. Plug the Chromecast device into an available HDMI port on your Samsung Smart TV.
  2. Turn on your Samsung Smart TV and select the HDMI input that your Chromecast is plugged into.
  3. Open the Chromecast-enabled app on your iPhone and select the content that you want to cast to your TV.
  4. Look for the "Cast" icon, which looks like a rectangle with three curved lines in the lower-left corner of the app screen. Tap on it.
  5. Select your Chromecast device from the list of available devices that appears. Make sure it is the same one that you plugged into your Samsung Smart TV.
  6. Your content should now start playing on your Samsung Smart TV. You can control playback, pause, rewind, or fast-forward using the app on your iPhone.
  7. When you're finished watching, simply tap the "Cast" icon again and then tap "Stop Casting" to disconnect from the Chromecast device.

That's it! This is how you can cast content from Chromecast-enabled apps on your iPhone to a Samsung Smart TV.

The best method to mirror any iPhone screen is by using the AirPlay feature, but using this tool becomes a problem if the model of your Samsung TV is old. A method we highly recommend is using the web version of AirDroid Cast as no login is required.

Another good alternative is the lightning digital AV adapter or the Amazon Firestick. They are both external devices that are extremely helpful when it comes to screen mirroring your iPhone.
