Occasionally Google updates Chrome/Chromecast, which means you need to restart your Chrome browser (and sometimes the Chromecast itself, but that usually happens automatically).

This should happen any time you restart your computer, so the best fix really is to make sure you restart your computer often!


How To Update Chrome

  1. Click the three dots up the top right of Chrome
  2. Click "Help" then "About Google Chrome"
  3. Chrome will then check for updates, and install any that it needs to.
  4. If it did an update that needs Chrome to be restarted, it will prompt you to relaunch.
  5. Click "Relaunch" and the updates will be done. Your tabs should also reopen!
