With Amazon Prime Video app adding the support for Chromecast in 2019, now we can use a standalone Google Chromecast streaming stick or a built-in Chromecast to help cast Prime Video from Android iOS device to smart TV. Now, let's start.
Step 1. If you're using a standalone Chromecast stick, connect it to your TV. Or, turn on your TV with Chromecast built-in.
Step 2. Open the Prime Video app on your Android mobile or iOS device. Note: Your mobile must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your Chromecast and TV.
Step 3. Tap on the Cast icon (square with 3 curved lines) at the bottom right corner of the mobile's screen.
Step 4. Select the Chromecast device that is connected to your TV.
Step 5. Browse the Prime Video on your Android/iPhone app and find the movie, TV series, or other content you want to watch on big screen TV. Hit the Play button and you will be able to enjoy the Prime video on your TV. If your network is fast enough, you can also stream 4K Amazon Prime Video content from mobile to TV.
What to do when there is no cast icon on your Amazon Prime Video app?
- Make sure your Chromecast and phone are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
- Check if your Amazon Prime Video app is up to date or not. Your version may be old and is possibly incompatible with Chromecast. If you can't see cast button, download the latest Amazon Prime Video app from Apple App Store (if you're using an iPhone or an iPad) or from up-to-date Google Play Store (if you're an Android user). And, your Android, iOS, and Chromecast device should be up to date as well.
What to do when there's only audio, no video?
You may try the following things: restart Chromecast, restart your phone, change HDMI port, reinstall Amazon Prime Video app, etc.
