    I’ve been struggling with this lately my chromecast is version3 but in my country doesn’t come with google tv...
    The problem is when I use the cast option the volume is so quiet even after the TV’s and phone volume is at 100%.
    But when I use the mirroring option is like the chromecast uses all the tv volume and sounds normal.
    Do you know if there’s is a way to fix this?

    Welcome to Android Central! When you're casting, check to see if there's a separate volume control embedded in the app on the phone (e.g., tap on the video screen on the phone and see if there's a speaker icon -- if there is , make sure that volume is also cranked up).

    I’ve tried with iPhone XR SAMSUNG J7 and a laptop dell with windows 10 and the same for all of them. Do you think is normal I mean sounds a lot louder when mirroring the screen but it’s uncomfortable because I can’t use the device

    Do you have any equalizers turned on? If so, try turning them off.

    When you screen mirror is that using an app built into the TV?

    I am thinking there is an issue with the HDMI port on the Chromecast that is affecting the sound volume. Sometimes when hdmi's are not working properly it can mean that the signal from the device to the port is degraded somewhat. How old is this dongle? Can it be taken back and exchanged for a new one?

    Mmm the thing is that when screen mirroring is using the chromecast with the google home application is something very weird

    Are you able to check what audio format the TV thinks it is processing in the two cases? This can have an effect on the perceived loudness.

    Welcome to the forums. You can try this, open the Goggle Home app, select the Chromecast device and make sure that the volume slider is set to 100%.

    Better trying this while you are using that device.

    Why the volume is weaker when casting and stronger when mirroring-screenshot_20220127-192725.jpg

    Yup, weird. You could factory reset the Chromecast device, set it up again and see if it makes any difference. I'm not sure about the 3 but in previous models you could do that holding the tiny button on the edge for 10-20 seconds.

    Oh, wait, I remembered something. Some TV sets have problems with the surround settings for Netflix and similar apps. Open the Home app, select the device, tap the cog icon top right, select Audio and select Stereo only. Long shot but worth a try.

    As someone above suggested try looking in the TV audio setting and set it to stereo / non-surround.

    Already did it maybe something is wrong with the chromecast even though screen mirroring sounds great.
