Otherwise, you need to use USB-C to HDMI or a USB-C hub to connect Chromebook to TV without HDMI cable.

Choose one of them and then connect the HDMI end of the cable to the HDMI port on your TV to mirror it on TV.

  • Take any stander HDMI cable or USB-C, or the hub cable and connect the other end of the cable to your Chromebook.
  • Open “Settings” on Chromebook >>> go to “Device”.
  • Next, click the “Displays” option, and here you will see the connected TV.
  • In order to adjust TV settings, click the name of the TV in the listed devices.
