    Sorry. Your "photo" does not show it is installed.
    There is a green Install button. That does not mean it has been installed.
    One has to click that green Install button to start installation.

    It looks like an Android question which I shall stay away from.

    Ok .. from what I understand, you would need an Android tablet or phone to install the Video & TV Cast App. It wasn't written for Windows.

    davidhk is correct the green button says install, not installed

    I'm not sure how far you got with setting up your Chromecast dongle, but I learned a bit from this video



    and here's a good description of Apps on the device (none basically)

    Does Chromecast dongle actually have Apps installed locally? - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com

    Where does that leave you?
    If you have an Android tablet or phone, you can install the app on that.
    If you don't ... there might be a comparable Windows App that can stream to Chomecast
    You'll need the Chromecast extension for the Chrome browser

    Two other videos
    How to install Google Chromecast on Windows 10 - YouTube
    Google Chromecast 2.0 2015 | Everything you need to know! - YouTube

    Windows 10 is also capable of casting to Chromecast ... but I don't know if it's ready for primetime.

    For Windows apps visit the Windows store - you might find something like the Android App.
    Your request appears to be from an automated process

    That's about all I can offer - sorry for any confusion I added to your thread.

    See, I told you I might have the question wrong ....
    You did originally say the Google Store - I thought you were confused, but no ... I was the one confused

    Video & TV Cast | Chromecast
    *** This app only works with a Google Chromecast, or a Google Cast / Android TV powered device***

    Drat ... davidhk types faster - thanks david

    I have sent two replys but they do not appear here.

    Here are Google Search results for Windows 10 Cast to device support.

    cast to device - Google Search

    Then you'll have to find a "replacement" Windows App for the Googole App you were trying to install.
    Launch the Windows Store (shopping bag icon) and search for TV
    There's also the Movies App, but I'm not sure if that is capable of casting to device.

    That's about all I have to add.
