Get stunning backgrounds on Chromecast

Personalise your Chromecast backdrop with stunning shots from Google and NASA or your own personal photos


Rather than staring at the drab Chromecast background every time you switch on, why not liven things up with some random wallpapers from Google and NASA? Alongside Chromecast’s time and weather information, these images look stunning.


Setting a background for Chromecast is an option that many overlook. Start by opening the app on your phone or tablet, ensuring that Chromecast is switched on and online. Tap the Settings gear.


In the Settings screen, tap Backdrop then tap Art and Satellite Images to enable them. Make a choice about what types of images you want. Personal photos stored on your Android can also be added.


Select Customised Speed to adjust how often the images are rotated. Chromecast will now begin to display a series of high resolution images that you can enjoy between streaming videos.
