Google Chrome Browser on Ipod

I have recently purchased the Google Chromecast to work with my Ipod. When I go through the set up on the Ipod it says I need a Chrome Browser and asks if I wish to download. When I select download the beta version it in turn takes me to an install option, however the install option does not seem to work.

I have tried to several times to get the browser to download but I can not seem to get it updated to the Ipod.

I have a 5th generation Ipod with the correct iOS6 operating system.

What am I doing wrong? Thanks

Just download and install Chrome from the Apple store.

Re: Google Chrome Browser on Ipod

Are you trying to setup the chromecast or just use it?

To set it up, you need to use the Chromecast app in the App Store ( https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/chro...680819774?mt=8 )

Otherwise you can only use the YouTube app and Netflix apps with it for now, I believe, could be wrong.

I have Chromecast plugged into the tv, it says run the setup which then tells me I need the chrome browser on the Ipod. Do I then need both the Chrome Browser as well the the chromecast app to make this work?

Re: Google Chrome Browser on Ipod

The chromecast app is just for the setup. if you then want to use your ipod to cast video, then you'd use the netflix or youtube standalone apps. at this point, there isn't a browser on iOS that can cast anything (as far as i know).

from desktop you can do so (cast) from chrome browser.
