As the title suggests, when trying to stream from my phone Samsung S6, the Chromecast button is greyed out and it won't let me stream.

It's frustrating and I can't seem to find any help on the forums.

Thanks

Are your Chromecast and the phone on the same wireless network?

I'm actually trying to cast to my smart tv and my phone and tv are hooked up to the same router. It works with Netflix etc just not Crunchyroll

The only Smart TVs that have a Crunchyroll app are TVs with Android TV. For all other types of Smart TVs you will need an actual Chromecast dongle to use the cast functionality.

One exception I know of are some recent Vizio models that have Google Cast (Chromecast) built in:
