For Chromecast

  • Make sure you’re using a wired ethernet connection. The latest Chromecast has Ethernet ports near the power adapter.
  • Use HDMI 2.0 or great port. Smaller interface ports (for, e.g., VGA ports) can degrade the video quality and also cause frame drops from time to time.
  • If you’re using Home/office Wifi, make sure to keep a distance of a maximum of 10 meters from the device.
  • Check the wifi router configuration. It must be a 5GHz band connection instead of traditional 2.4 GHz bands. 5GHz bands are faster and secure and work best for Google Stadia services.
  • Make sure to stop any other services such as downloading or web surfing during your gameplay. This increases the ping connection and causes slow game responses.
  • In case your display doesn’t support high frame rate, we recommend you to disable the “50 Hz frame” option from streaming. You can do so by navigating to Google Home app > Settings > Display > Turn off 50 Hz HDMI mode.
