How do I test the Internet connection on my Chromecast?

The best way to determine if your device is connected to the Internet is to open another Internet-based app that can send video to your Chromecast.

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