Android & Chromecast function

I have a Sony 65xbr850e, it has Chromecast & Android functions. The manual is lacking in instructions. Where can I get detailed instructions?
Thanks,
Tom

Re: Android & Chromecast function

Those numbers don't seem to exactly match a model I can find at Best Buy.

 

However, it should be a matter of needing to have the Chromecast app installed on your phone and or your computer. Either of which needs to have access to your home wi-fi

 

Once you have your TV connected to your network

 

Then from your phone or computer when you are in a function that supports Chromecast you will see the Chromecast Icon appear. Tap that and it should give you the option of what your going to connect to.

 

You can do a google search for what the icon looks like. it is a box with 3 radio waves coming in from the lower left.

Re: Android & Chromecast function

Hello Thomas1950,

 

Thanks for your questions on the Casting feature of your new TV! I’d be happy to point in you the correct direction.

 

The TV uses Google Cast which is like a Chromecast. You’re welcome to review the help guide published on Sony’s website about how to set up Google Cast on an Android TV here.  Please let me know if you have any further questions, and I’d be happy to see how I can assist you further!

 

Respectfully,
