ChromeCast and Hangouts incompatible?
« on: December 26, 2013, 03:56:02 AM »
At this point I have invested about ten hours trying to get Google Hangouts to work with my brand new ChromeCast Christmas present. I'm thinking I need to return CC to BestBuy 'cause, even though I have seen a couple of references to the combination working, I can't accomplish that.

If anyone hasucceededed in getting them to work together I'd sure appreciate receiving DETAILED, step-by-step instructions.

Otherwise, I guess it's back to BB on my way to OutletPC for an HDMI cable to put Skype on my TV.

What are you trying to accomplish?  Hangouts does not work with Chromecast but there is a long list of apps that do.

If you have the Chrome browser on your pc and you install the Chromecast plugin, you should be able to cast anything displayed in the browser to your TV, remember that the plugin is not available for the mobile version of Chrome used on tablets and phones. As johna2u stated Hangouts is not a compatible app if you are trying to cast from a tablet or phone.
