Note: Chromecast does not have built-in VPN or MediaStreamer DNS functionality. In order to use ExpressVPN on your Chromecast, you need to connect your Chromecast to a VPN-enabled virtual router or router. This tutorial will teach you how to do that.

1. Set up a VPN router or virtual VPN router

To use ExpressVPN on your Chromecast device, set up a VPN connection using the ExpressVPN app for routers, the ExpressVPN manual configuration for routers, or a virtual VPN router.

Use the ExpressVPN app for routers

Important: This option requires a compatible Asus, Linksys, or Netgear router.

You can use the ExpressVPN router app on select Asus, Linksys, and Netgear routers.

See instructions on setting up:

Use ExpressVPN manual configurations for routers

Important: This option requires a router compatible with ExpressVPN manual configurations.

You can set up ExpressVPN manual configurations on these routers.

Use a virtual VPN router

Important: This option requires technical knowledge and may not be suitable for everyone.

You can set up a virtual VPN router on Windows or Mac.

Cast or mirror from your device to a TV with Chromecast

Important: If you are using the new Chromecast with Google TV, you can run the ExpressVPN app on your Chromecast with Google TV and do not have to cast or mirror from your device.

Casting and mirroring are wireless technologies that allow you to stream content from your device to a TV with Chromecast.

If you want to stream from your device (with VPN) to a TV via your Chromecast, here are the compatible casting and mirroring options:

CastingMirroring
Android (with VPN)✘ Not supported✔ Supported
Windows (with VPN)✔ Supported (in Chromium-based browsers)✘ Not supported
Chromebook (with VPN)✘ Not supported✘ Not supported
Linux (with VPN)✔ Supported (in Chromium-based browsers)✘ Not supported

 

(It is not possible to cast or mirror content from iOS or macOS to your Chromecast.)

Alternatively, you can connect your Chromecast to a VPN router or a virtual VPN router. Under this option, you do not need to cast or mirror content from your device to your Chromecast. You simply need a VPN-connected Chromecast and a TV to stream the content.
