If your device is still connected to an existing Wi-Fi network, you can follow these steps to change the Wi-Fi network it is connected to. See the "If your speaker or display is currently connected to a Wi-Fi network" section.

 

If you've already changed to a different Wi-Fi network, try these steps:

  1. Open the Google Home app.
  2. At the top left, tap Add + > Set up device > New device > set up new devices in your home.
  3. Follow the in-app steps.

If these steps above don’t solve the issue, you’ll need to factory reset your speaker or display, then set it up again using your new Wi-Fi network and password.

 Instead of factory resetting your speaker or display, if you're comfortable changing your router settings, you can change your new Wi-Fi network name and password in your router's settings to be the same as the previous ones. Your device should then automatically connect to the Wi-Fi.

Hey there,

 

Thanks for the help, davidking. I appreciate it!

 

Mga, hope that helps, but if you're still having trouble connecting your Chromecast to the new network, please try to manually connect to the Chromecast SSID. Here's how: Go to the phone settings > Open Wi-Fi and connect to the Chromecast SSID (Example: Chromecast1234, Living Room TV, Bedroom TV, etc.) > Go to the Google Home app and try to set up again.

 

Regards,

Jennifer
