You can add your Dropbox folder to the Files app on your Chromebook so you can access files stored on your device and in your Dropbox account in one place. To do so, you must be a ChromeOS user and be signed in to the Dropbox Android app on your Chromebook.

  2. Dropbox Chromecast Settings

The demonstration video entitled “Dropbox to Chromecast App” can be watched below: In the YouTube video Dutta selects a short clip from his Dropbox library, he then clicks the share button and selects the option “Share to Chromecast,” and within 10 seconds the home movie is playing on his TV. This is just a small rant, I was hoping that the new Chromecast would be a One-Stop shop for all of my streaming services. Right now my LG TV supports most of the services I want to watch except for HBO Max, twitch and, locast Unfortunately a lot of the apps, which support Dolby vision and Dolby Atmos on my LG tv, don't support them on the Chromecast (Disney plus, Vudu, prime video). The app lets you stream any video that’s uploaded to your personal Dropbox account straight to your TV as long as Chromecast is plugged in. Just pull up the app on your mobile device, find the. From the Chromecast home screen, select your profile picture (top right), then Settings. (Dropbox, Box and OneDrive are also supported if you don’t want to use Google Drive). Cast to a Google Chromecast Animated Slideshows. Show animated photo and video slideshows Background Music. Love this app for Dropbox slideshows. So great for selecting one or more folders with images and displaying a slideshow with many options: random vs sequential order, display captions or not, type of transition between.

To access your Dropbox account in the Files app:

  1. Open the Files app on your Chromebook.
  2. Click the menu icon (it looks like three horizontal lines).
  3. Click your Dropbox folder.
    • If you connected your work and personal Dropbox accounts on your Chromebook, you'll see both folders.

Note: If you uninstall the Dropbox Android app, your Dropbox folder will be removed from the Files app.
