How do I test the Internet connection on my Chromecast?

The best way to determine if your device is receiving an Internet connection is to open another Internet-connected application that can send video from your mobile device or computer to your Chromecast.

To test if your Chromecast is properly connected to your Wi-Fi network, attempt to send video to your Chromecast from YouTube using your Android or Apple mobile device, or from within the Chrome web browser using the Cast icon.
