Hi Maeb,


Thanks for reaching out. Is this only happening with the Facebook app or across all apps? Please try the steps listed below:


  1. Completely close the Facebook app, then reopen.
  2. Cast from another Chromecast-enabled app to isolate if the issue is app-related.
  3. Turn on Local Network Access for iOS devices. Here's how: go to the phone's Settings > Tap Privacy > Local Network.
  4. Make sure the Facebook app is updated. 
  5. Clear the Facebook app's cache.
  6. Uninstall and reinstall the Facebook app.
  7. Reboot your Wi-Fi router.
  8. Reboot your Chromecast.
  9. Forget the Wi-Fi network and reconnect.
  10. Try to cast from another mobile device to isolate if it's a device issue.
  11. Reboot your mobile phone.
  12. Factory reset your Chromecast.


Let me know how it goes.
