  1. The Pin is available, but the Cast option doesn’t show up the nearby Google cast-enabled applications:
  • Make sure the user that is connected as your guest is using an Android device or a device with an iOS operating system which should have Android version 4.3 or above and iOS version more than seven
  • Check the settings of your wireless network: Hold your Android device to open the Settings menu. Click on Wi-Fi settings to view the Menu. Choose the option for Advanced settings and click on to enable the option for “Scanning always available.” If the scanning settings are already enabled for all time, then leave it same.
