How to chromecast from an Android phone / tablet

Unfortunately the settings menu 'Cast' option as mentioned above is not available in the Android app version of Chrome, there is however another way of doing this.

You can instead cast your Android screen from the 'Google Home' app. Casting your Android screen mirrors your Android device on your TV exactly the same as you see it on your mobile device. *Please note that this is not supported on iOS or Windows devices.

On your Android device open the 'Google Home' app.
