Chromecast button doesn't appear in HBO GO on Android

If you're experiencing issues with Chromecast, try the following steps:

  1. Make sure that Chromecast and the device with HBO GO are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
  2. Make sure your Android phone or tablet meets the minimum device and software requirements. You can also check for Android software updates by going to Settings > About Phone > System Update on your Android phone or tablet.  
  3. Close all open apps and then restart your phone or tablet by turning it off for 1-2 minutes and then back on.
  4. Restart your Chromecast by turning it off for 1-2 minutes and then back on.
  5. Restart your router and modem by turning them off for 1-2 minutes and then back on. Confirm all devices are on the same Wi-Fi network.
  6. Uninstall and then reinstall the HBO GO app.

You can also try casting from the Google Home app. Here's how:

  1. Open the Google Home app on your Android device.
  2. Tap the Menu button and then Cast screen/audio.
  3. Tap Cast Screen / Audio.
  4. Choose your Chromecast device.
  5. Once your phone screen appears on your TV, open HBO GO and start streaming.

Note: HBO GO isn't supported on rooted Android devices or devices with a custom ROM. As a result, you may encounter problems that can only be resolved by restoring your device to factory settings.
