How to Get Free LG TV Cast Apps

LG TVs come with a built-in feature called Screen Share, allowing you to cast content from compatible devices to your TV.

However, for a more extensive casting experience, you might want to consider free casting apps, such as AnyCast, iMediaShare, and Video & TV Cast for LG Smart TV, available on both Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store.

To get these free LG TV Cast apps:

  1. Visit your mobile device’s app store (Google Play Store or Apple’s App Store).
  2. Use the search bar to find the desired casting app (e.g., AnyCast, iMediaShare, Video & TV Cast for LG Smart TV).
  3. Click ‘Install’ or ‘Get’ to download the app for free.

How to Cast from Your PC to LG TV

For Windows PC users, the built-in ‘Cast to Device’ feature is the simplest method to cast to your LG TV:

  1. Ensure your LG TV and PC are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
  2. On your PC, right-click the media file you want to cast.
  3. Click on ‘Cast to Device’ and select your LG TV from the list of devices.

If your LG TV doesn’t appear, make sure it supports Miracast (a screen mirroring protocol) and that this feature is enabled on your TV.

How to Cast from Your Mac to LG TV

Mac users can use Apple’s AirPlay 2 feature to cast to LG TVs that support AirPlay 2.

  1. Connect your Mac and LG TV to the same Wi-Fi network.
  2. On your Mac, click on the ‘AirPlay’ icon in the menu bar.
  3. Select your LG TV from the dropdown list.

If your LG TV doesn’t support AirPlay, you can use a third-party app like AirbeamTV.

Can You Screen Mirror on LG TV?

Yes, you can mirror your screen on LG TV. LG’s Screen Share feature enables screen mirroring from compatible devices. You can access this feature in the ‘Network’ tab of your TV’s settings.

If your device doesn’t support Screen Share, you can use a third-party app such as Miracast for Android devices or AirPlay for Apple devices. Remember to connect both devices to the same Wi-Fi network before starting the screen mirroring process.

Does LG TV Have Google Cast?

Google Cast, also known as Chromecast built-in, allows you to stream content from your device to your TV. While many LG TVs come with this feature built-in, not all models do.

To check if your LG TV has Google Cast:

  1. Go to the LG Content Store on your TV.
  2. Use the search feature to find ‘Google Cast’ or ‘Chromecast.’ If it’s available, your TV supports Google Cast.

If your LG TV doesn’t support Google Cast, you can still use a Chromecast device plugged into your TV’s HDMI port to cast content from your device.


With the evolution of smart TVs, streaming and casting content directly to your television has never been easier. Whether you’re using a PC, a Mac, or a mobile device, LG TVs offer various options for casting your favorite content.

And with numerous free casting apps available, you can customize your viewing experience to suit your needs. Happy casting!
