  1. Cool video but the "location" icon presented in your GoogleHome version to find the device doesn't exist anymore in the version downloaded on April 22th.

  2. During setup I'm able to get the chromecast connected to the Hotspot phone, but after the casting phone won't connect back to the Hotspot phone. Any ideas?

  3. Great video but i'm still nowhere, i need a second device to actualle cast -.- why cant i just cast with the phone that's also being used as the hotspot…… 1.5 hours of my life wasted

  4. It didn’t work with my iPhone. My hotspot doesn’t appear as a possible red. And I tried with my wife’s LG and didn’t work. Also, I read an article posted in February 2018 saying that Chromecast no longer works with hotspot. Any advice?

  5. Please help my. Ewery it's ok but when Chromecast must comet I have information. Chromecast comet but you don't have a internet please reconnect. What I must do ?

  6. Is it possible to cast directly from the phone to Chromecast without all this router/hotspot nonsense.
    I mean who has an extra phone just to create a hostpot for casting?

  7. Hi, I went through the whole setup, but would not connect. Said "this type of network is not supported". I used FoxFi for mobile hotspot. Have any tips?
