Lag mirroring Galaxy A53 to Chromecast 2nd Gen

On an old Galaxy S7, I could mirror my device in Google home and view pictures on our TV, via the 2nd Gen Chromecast.

Now I have a Samsung Galaxy A53 and at first it would connect to the Chromecast when cast screen was selected, then freeze and disconnect.  Rebooting both devices, it will now connect but often takes several seconds when I move to the next photo before it will load, if at all.  If I rotate the phone, the image on the TV starts to rotate then freezes.

I can cast Youtube, cast from another device.  It is just mirroring my screen from the home app that is very clunky.

Chromecast and phone are on the same wifi network and same frequency.

latest Google home app (Dec 8, 2022)

Android 13

2nd Gen Chromecast.

I do get a pop up when I cast my screen

 

Cast to mirror device

Note: this device is not optimized for casting, so your experience may vary.

Mirroring an old Galaxy S7 works smoothly.

Hi Adam8,

 

Thanks for reaching out and for providing detailed information on your issue — it's a big help! Please try the steps below:

 

  1. Make sure your Android device has enough available power, turn off its low power mode or battery saver.
  2. Make sure the microphone permission in the Google Play Services app is turned on.
  3. Ensure your Android device and Chromecast device is within 15 feet (4 meters) of each other. 

For additional information on how to improve your Android screen casting experience, check out this support website article

 

Best,

Jennifer
