How to Change Chromecast WiFi Network and Connect Automatically
Google Chromecast allows you to enjoy everything from Netflix and Hulu to YouTube streaming video with a tap on your smartphone. It usually sits connected to your TV at home, but it’s also the perfect tool for the weary road warrior that likes to binge watch shows at hotels.
This is where it gets complicated: the biggest limitation and time consuming activity with the streaming video device is that you have to change Chromecast WiFi connection each time you’re connecting to a different WiFi network. If you are frequently on the go, this can make the Chromecast almost too much trouble to bother with.
However, we have the perfect solution to make it easy and save time. Read below to find out how to easily change Chromecast WiFi and make it automatically connect to new WiFi networks.
Change Chromecast WiFi and Enjoy Connecting Automatically When at Hotels
The Connectify Hotspot software app allows you to share your Windows laptop’s wifi connection with your other devices. This comes in handy when you are trying to avoid silly hotel wifi charges that gouge you for every single device. It also works great with the Chromecast.
You can use your Connectify Hotspot as a middleman for the Chromecast. The first time you use Chromecast with your Connectify Hotspot you will have to change Chromecast WiFi manually. But, every time after that, all you need to do is open up your laptop and turn on your Connectify Hotspot, your Chromecast will recognize the Connectify connection from its last connection.
The Connectify Hotspot makes your Chromecast plug and play, even if you are staying a different hotel every night.

- Setup your Chromecast with your Connectify Hotspot at home. Because you only need to connect your Chromecast to your Connectify Hotspot once, you can save time and frustration by setting it up and change Chromecast WiFi before you ever leave for your trip. The Chromecast will remember your Connectify Hotspot SSID and password.
- Use a tablet or smartphone to adjust the settings on your Chromecast. Sometimes when your streaming device is connected to your Connectify Hotspot on your laptop, it will not easily let you change Chromecast WiFi settings from the same laptop. The easiest workaround for this Chromecast issue is to simply use your phone to adjust the settings.
- Don’t change your SSID or password. Your Chromecast is using the SSID and password you set for the Connectify Hotspot to identify your laptop as a valid Internet connection If you make any changes to the SSID or password, you may have to completely set up the Chromecast again.
