Disney Plus, in case you didn’t know, is the streaming service that Disney launched recently. It’s essentially Netflix for Disney, with original series and movies galore. Discord already lets you stream to desktop, but it can’t do mobile devices or TV’s yet. Here’s how you get around this limitation by using Chromecast! SO without any further ado, let’s start our guide on how to stream Disney plus on discord.
Now, before you go ahead and buy a Chromecast, make sure it is compatible with your TV. Most new TVs have them built-in or can handle one as an external device but some older models might not support it. Here is a link from the Chromecast website that shows which model works best for your TV.
Note: If you have a nice smart TV, then it’s going to support Chromecast. You can also purchase a Chromecast to directly access the Disney Plus app, but I’m going to show you how to stream from an Android device via Discord because it’s cheaper.
As for Chromecast, it’s pretty cheap and you can grab one from local stores or online. You can get a 2nd Generation Chromecast for less than $30. Now that you have the device, here are the steps to play Disney Plus on Discord!
Requirements: Discord app on your phone/computer; a Chromecast connected to your TV; and of course, Disney Plus.
Step-By-Step Guide on How to Stream Disney Plus on Discord:
Step 1: Make sure both the device running Discord and the Chromecast are connected to the same wireless network.
Step 2: Open Discord and click on the microphone-shaped icon in the upper left corner of your channel list.
Step 3: In the drop-down menu, select your Chromecast.
Step 4: Your laptop/computer will now be streaming to your TV via Chromecast instead of playing in a small box in the corner. You will hear the audio from Discord go through your TV speakers too.
Step 5: On your phone, open up Disney Plus app and log in.

Step 6: When you are on the TV screen, use your phone/tablet as usual to watch the videos. Press play, pause, etc.

If you have any questions about the setup, leave them below and I’ll try my best to answer them.

It’s just the link between Discord App and GroupWatch platform where your friends are.
