EZCast is an app designed to let you stream content from a PC, phone, or tablet to a TV with a cheap EZCast dongle like a Tronsmart T1000 or EZChrome. But the developers have updated the app so it now supports Google’s Chromecast stick as well.

You can download the free EZCast for Android or iOS from the Google Play Store or App Store, connect it to your Chromecast and stream music, videos, documents, websites, or other content from your phone to your TV.

EZCast with Chromecast

Some features don’t work with a Chromecast. For instance you can’t use Miracast wireless display or DLNA features with Google’s TV stick. But you can use EZCast to do a number of things, including:

  • Stream documents from your phone to your TV.
  • View photos on the big screen while pinching to zoom or swiping to slide through gallery images.
  • Draw or write annotations on those pictures.
  • Stream live video from your phone’s camera to your TV.
  • Surf the web on your phone and see the web pages on your TV screen.
  • Stream video from YouTube or other online video sites.

There are a number of other apps that let you stream media from your phone to a Chromecast, or even which let you draw on your TV screen using a mobile app. But EZCast packs more features into one app than almost anything else I’ve seen so far.

Unfortunately the app feels a bit clunky at times. Sometimes it loses its connection to the Chromecast, it can take a long time for the app to load, and some of the built-in apps (such as the web browser) are a bit barebones.

  1. EZcast works great from my phone to the big tv screen
    but from PC to big screen it will only find videos and music but not photos

    1. Can you use EZCast to start a webcam stream, but then turn off your phone? Trying to figure out if it’s just screen mirroring your phone/tablet or if the chromecast can actually go out and retrieve the video source.

      1. I will check later. But IIRC, it mirrors your web browser, but compatable video is played directly through your chromecast. With V-Get you can turn off your phone and it handles almost everything, including defeating pop-ups in most video sites. EZCast gets easily messed up by similar pop-ups, but is free instead of free to try.

  2. i am unable to connect to chromecast thru ezcast app. however i am able to publish youtube to chromecast. what could be the issue?
