Although Brave Browser is based off Chromium, the open-source version of Chrome, Brave strips back and turns off a lot of features in order to keep it running as fast and smooth as possible. Whilst that is very much welcomed, there are some features which we may miss from Chrome that we want to have in Brave. Being able to enable Chromecast in Brave Browser is one of those features.
To enable Chromecast on Brave, simply use the following steps.
Download Brave Browser
First of all, make sure you are on the latest version of Brave, which can be downloaded here. There were a lot of improvements to the casting feature towards the end of 2019 so its best to ensure you are up to date, and have a bug and trouble free experience.
Get Into The Settings
Head to Hamburger menu in the top right of Brave.
Go down to “Settings”.
Scroll all the way down to the bottom where you will see the section titled “Media Router”. This is the switch we need to set to “On” so we can start connecting to our Chromecast.
You will probably be asked to relaunch Brave Browser, simply hit Relaunch Now.
Once restarted, head back to the Hamburger menu. You should see a new entry called “Cast”. Simply hit this and you should be good to go!
