Install and set up Chromecast: go through the setup in 6 steps

Step 1: Plug the Chromecast into the HDMI input of your television. Take the supplied power cable, plug it into the Chromecast and then into the power outlet. Step 2: Turn on your television and wait for the Chromecast home screen. Don’t see this screen? Then press the source on your remote control until you reach the HDMI input of the Chromecast. You will see a code appear on your screen. Please write it down for later. Step 3: Open or download the Google Home app on your phone or tablet. Turn on Bluetooth and sign in to the Google account of your choice. Then choose or create a new ‘house’ within the app. Your device or tablet will then search for new devices. Step 4: On your phone, choose the device with the same code as on the television. Then you install the correct Chromecast. After the selection, a code appears on your television and your telephone. Verify that it is the same code and continue choosing the WiFi network. Step 5: To ensure that the setup of your Chromecast runs smoothly, now choose the WiFi network that you also use on your phone. You do this in the Google Home app. Step 6: Success! Your Chromecast is actually installed on your television. It was good.
