Control and manage your Chromecast dongle right from your mobile device

Chromecast is the official app of the Google's TV dongle that smartify your TV.

This app allows you to pair your Chromecast with your Android / OS smartphone and tablet and control it right from your touchscreen. The app automatically detects if there's a Chromecast connected to the same WiFi network. Once pairing is done, you can navigate through Chromecast menu as if you had a remote controller.

In addition, you can discover Chromecast compatible apps and download them right from the app. As you may know, the catalogue isn't impressive right now. Check it though, you may find an app you didn't know about.

That's pretty much what Chromecast app has to offer. And it's fair enough.

Neat and polished Google Play-like layout. Smoothness and reliability. Google stuff, you know.

    This device would drop completely off my network and continue to say, "Could Not Connect To Chromecast". It refused to connect to my 2.5GHz internet. I plan to return it for a better TV streaming box. I only gave it 2 stars because it turned on and knew my N7 existed.

    I was watching a movie on Netflix and it just stopped working. I've reset it, unplugged it, cleared the cache, everything you can think of and then some and it won't connect at all. It worked fine before! Please fix. So disappointing.

    Without "cast screen" option chromecast dongle is useless, even the dongles name has a word "CAST" but it doesn't screen casting on my galaxy S3, because chromecast doesn't want to support it, even if my phone have a capability to do what. What a useless dongle!!! Poor product description, if I know that chromemecast doesn't support my s3 i never buy it.
