Casting to TV

I am considering cancelling my internet but first I need to be able to cast to my TV from my phone without using WI FI. Hotspotting works for my lap top but not TV. I have tried without success because I keep getting messages to connect to WI FI. Can someone give me a step by step process?

Re: Casting to TV

Hi

I am presuming casting using Chromecast.

To be able to connect your Chromecast to you phone hotspot you need to do the following.

Download the Google home app on a different device to your phone.

Connect that device to your  phone's hotspot.

Open the Google home app on that device.

Search for the Chromecast and follow the instructions to connect to your phones wifi.

Re: Casting to TV

once connected, it is worth trying out the connection speed of the mobile hotspot during peak house and see if the internet speed via the hotspot (4g) is acceptable
