Chromeca Google Earth

Trying to chromecast google earth to TV (to use Streetview) from iPhone but cannot find the appropriate icon on Chrome with which to do this. Anyone have any luck with doing this?

Yes- I'm using the Chrome browser but as I say, I can't find any icon on that browser to cast Google Earth?

Thanks king1. It says: ' At this time, it's not possible to cast a tab from Chrome for Mobile. This includes the Chrome browser on iOS devices'. This appears to be their way of saying no, you can't cast using Chrome and a mobile phone?
But obviously I can (e.g. no problem with YouTube for example). just not Google earth?
Have I got that right?

From the above page:

"Note: You can't show tabs or screens using Chrome on iPhones and iPads."

So, apparently it's not possible.

That will be because it is using the youtube app that does support chromecast

Yes only certain apps support Chromecast, especially on iOS.

With many Android phones you can cast the entire screen which is handy.

Try the Ezcast app on phone to your Chromecast. May work.
