You can use the Netflix app for Chromecast and Chromecast Ultra to control Netflix from your Android device or your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. If you use the Google Chrome browser, you can also send Netflix to your TV from your computer.
If you have trouble setting up your Chromecast or Chromecast Ultra:
Delete special characters
The Netflix app doesn't recognize characters like emojis or apostrophes in the Chromecast name. To fix this issue:
Open the Google Home app on your casting device.
Select the Chromecast name and remove any special characters.
Reopen the Netflix app and look for the Cast icon.
If you don't see the Cast icon, try these troubleshooting steps.
Check your connection
Chromecast needs to be on the same Wi-Fi network as your mobile device.
Check for multicast
If you have multicast routing, get setup instructions from your router, modem, or gateway owner's manual or manufacturer.
If you use the Chrome browser, visit the Google Support page to make sure you have the most recent version.
