How to Turn Off Chromecast on Android


Chromecast is a fantastic tool for streaming media from your favorite Android apps to your TV, but there will be occasions when you don’t want to cast. This post will show you how to stop Chromecast on Android or disable Chromecast notifications if that is all you need.

Note: This article was created using a Samsung Galaxy A01 with Android 10 and UI Core 2.0. The actual processes may differ slightly on different phones or Android 10, but the basics remain the same.

How to Disable Chromecast on Android 10

Your options for completely disabling Chromecast on Android are limited. Android doesn’t provide a straightforward mechanism to disable Chromecast, nor does it offer the ability to cast from your Android 10 device to Chromecast. That is, there is no Disable Chromecast button or setting. You do, however, have a few options:

  • Casting should be stopped. It’s simple to put a stop to an already running cast. Open the casting app, hit the Cast symbol (the box with lines coming out of the bottom left corner), and tap the Stop button. If you’re mirroring your screen, open the Google Home app, select the room where the Chromecast is located, and choose Settings > Stop Mirroring.
  • Unplug Chromecast from the TV or power source. Unplug your Chromecast from your TV’s HDMI connector or unhook the device’s power line to disable its functionality temporarily. In either case, your Chromecast will be unable to connect to your TV or phone.
  • Chromecast should be turned off. When you switch off Chromecast, it will be inactive until you turn it back on.

How to Remove Chromecast From Home App

You can altogether disable Chromecast by removing it from your Google Home app. This, of course, will prevent you from casting until you reset it, so it’s not the best method, but it gets the job done. To uninstall Chromecast:

  • Ensure that your phone and Chromecast are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
  • Navigate to the Google Home app and select the room where the Chromecast is located.
  • Select Settings.
  • Select  Remove > device .

Tips: If you’re technologically savvy and want to fully disable Chromecast on your Android phone while leaving the gadget configured, you only have one option: root your device. If you root your Android phone, you will be able to disable system-level services such as casting. We don’t advocate rooting unless you’re sure what you’re doing or don’t mind messing things up.

How to disable Chromecast Notifications in Android 10

If you have a Chromecast set up in your home, visitors connect to the same Wi-Fi network as the Chromecast; they may receive a notification suggesting that they relate to your Chromecast. You may not want your guests to have this choice, so you should disable Chromecast notifications.

Tip: If you don’t want to prohibit guests entirely but still want some control, consider Chromecast Guest Mode.

If that’s the case, you’re in luck since there’s a setting! To disable Chromecast notifications on Android 10, follow these steps:

  • Your Android phone connects to the Wi-Fi network that your Chromecast is linked to.
  • To open the Home app, tap it.
  • Tap the name of the room where the Chromecast device is located.
  • Select the Settings icon.
  • Scroll down and toggle the Allow others to control your cast media slider to gray/off.
