Overview: Stream to TV

HOW TO

How to verify my TV can stream dashboards

You must make sure that your TV or monitor is connected to the internet for it to stream dashboards. Many new smart TV's come with a built-in browser that is powerful enough to directly stream your dashboards. 

For older TV's, it is necessary to use a device like Asus Chromebit, Google Chromecast, or Amazon TV Fire Stick to essentially turn your TV into a computer and display the Shareable Link.

Pro Tip: Asus Chromebit and Amazon TV Fire Stick's functionality allows you to display Databoards on your TV with no additional device. Google Chromecast requires a computer, tablet, or phone to cast the Databoards to your TV.

Make sure your screen is at least 50" with full HD support. This will ensure your Databoards are displayed in the best quality possible.
