I am just trying to find out how can I use single device for hotspot and stream to chromecast. exxample my mobile device can enble hotspot with foxfi. when I enable foxfi uses the mobile data. But chromecast app needs wifi connection search chormecast devices.
Is possible to use single device as hotspot with mobile network as well as network as well as wifi to chromecast?

Nope. You can't use a device as a Hotspot & use it for Chromecast at the same time. You need a second device to cast something.

one of my friends is using Chromecast and his Google Nexus Phone to connect the phone directly to his chromecast by starting hotspot in his device and then screen casting / casting videos from youtube directly. no wifi router involved. and of course mobile data gets used in this.
so there is just one TV with HDMI input, one chromecast device connected to TV HDMI port and USB port for power, and one google nexus mobile phone with hot spot enabled. and the chromecast works perfectly.

i have HTC One phone, and I haven't been able to do this from my phone. i need a wifi router in between to connect my phone to the chromecast.

i hope it helps.
