#How to Reboot or Factory Reset Your Google Chromecast

“How to Reboot or Factory Reset Your Google Chromecast”

Chromecast devices—including Chromecast with Google TV—are known for being simple, but that doesn’t mean they don’t require a reboot or factory reset from time to time. We’ll show you how to do it in a few different ways.

“Rebooting” a device simply means turning it off and back on again. A “Factory Reset” will remove everything from the device and restore it to the way it was when you turned it on for the first time. Both can be used to fix problems.

To reboot your Chromecast, we can use the Google Home app for iPhone, iPad, or Android. Find your Chromecast in the device list and tap it.

Now tap the three-dot menu icon in the top-right and select “Reboot.”

Tap "Reboot" from the menu.

If for some reason the Chromecast is unresponsive, you can also simply unplug it from power and wait a minute before plugging it back in.
