There are several casting devices available in the market, available over a wide range of features and price range. Most of the devices have almost the same method of installation and usage. For example, you just have to plug your device into an HDMI port, which you will get on your television. Then you have to power it from a USB port. You can also power it from a socket. And then, you just have to download and install the app. These are the very simple steps required for casting.
For casting music to your speakers, the method of installation is simpler. You have to connect to a wifi network, which should be the same connection for your casting device as well.
