I want to use my phone to screencast a video on YouTube. I live in a rural area and have Hughesnet which is super slow. I hate trying to watch something and it buffers more than it plays. Can I setup Chromecast to use my phone's mobile data instead of the super slow wifi?
Thanks for posting — we'd love to help. You can set up your Chromecast using a mobile hotspot.
Here are the steps:
(You would need 2 mobile devices: 1st is for the Google Home app and 2nd will act as a Wi-Fi network using a mobile hotspot)
1. Turn on the mobile hotspot of your 2nd mobile device.
2. Reset your Google Home Hub to its default settings.
3. Make sure your 1st device is connected to the mobile hotspot of your 2nd mobile device.
4. Re-run the setup on your Google Home app and choose your mobile hotspot as the network to set it up.
