Being a Discord user for a while, the platform always amuses me with its new features. However, the one feature that I wish is the Chromecast support. Both the Discord app and website are not offering Chromecast support. Whenever I have a video call with my friends on Discord, I just think of casting the call. As the support is not available, I found a way to screen mirror the Discord app or website to my Chromecast-connected TVs.
If you want to cast the Discord app on your TV, you can use this guide. Here, I have explained how to Chromecast the Discord app and website in a step-by-step manner. With this, anyone can mirror Discord’s content on the big screen.
Ways to Chromecast Discord to TV
There are three different ways to screen mirror the Discord app.
- Using Android Smartphone
- Using iOS Smartphone
- Using a PC (Laptop/Desktop)
Based on your smart device, choose a method.
- Connect your Chromecast to WiFi. Then, connect your smartphone or PC to the same WiFi.
- Make sure that you have installed the latest version of the Discord app on your smartphone.
- While using the PC, keep your browser (Chrome/Edge) updated. You can update it from the browser settings.
- Update the Chromecast Firmware to the latest version for error-free casting.
