How to Use Chromecast on the Peloton Android App
You can view Peloton content on your TV by using our Android app and a Google Chromecast device or connected TV. To get started, just following the following steps:
- Begin any video workout class in the Android app.
- Tap the Chromecast icon on the bottom right portion of the screen.
- You can then select the TV you would like to stream your workout to - just make sure that your App and the Chromecast are on the same Wi-Fi network.
While casting, actions taken on your Android device will not interrupt your workout. This means you can turn your Android device’s screen off as well as interact with phone calls or other apps.
To stop casting just tap the Chromecast icon on your Android app again. This will bring up a modal where you can select “Stop Casting”. Additionally, you can use this menu to control the TV volume and pause your on-demand class.
Please see the screenshots below for a walkthrough of the feature:
