Casting from iPhone to Google Nest Hub Max

Community Member

Hi, I am considering purchasing a Google Nest Hub Max and I want to be able to use it to watch videos from streaming service apps and free to air tv apps (Australia).  As best I can understand I can do this by casting to the Nest Hub, so it is only dependent of whether or not the apps themselves have a casting function.  I found an example of how do this on YouTube, however, the  screen cast stayed at the same size as the iPhone screen and did not resize to the Nest Hub screen.

I have asked about this at a retailer selling the Nest Hub and they didn't have any information about how casting worked.  This is a critical function for me and I don't want to purchase the Nest Hub unless I am confident I can either stream or cast videos at the full screen size.   Are there any users out there doing this who can confirm for me?  TIA

Hi Jakarta68,


Thanks for posting here in the Google Nest Community and thanks for considering our product. 

Play music on Google Nest or Home speaker or display and enjoy your favorite audio apps optimized for your speaker or display. You can even use your mobile device or tablet as a remote and control everything from playback to volume.


  1. Make sure your mobile device or tablet is connected to the same Wi-Fi network or linked to the same account as your speaker or display.
  2. Open a Chromecast-enabled app.
  3. Tap the Cast icon .
  4. Touch and hold the tile of the speaker or display you'd like to cast to.
  5. When you're connected, the Cast icon will turn from light to dark gray, and will let you know you're connected.
  6. You can now cast audio and video to your speaker or display from your device.
  7. To stop casting, at the top of your device's screen, tap the Cast icon . In the box that appears, tap Stop Casting.

Note: Some music providers, like Spotify, require a subscription to play music from its Chromecast-enabled app. Also, YouTube content is only supported from the YouTube Music app (not the YouTube app), and you must have a YouTube Premium account. YouTube Music is only available in the US and Australia.

Hope this helps.
