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.

    It takes way too long to buffer at times. Right in the middle of a movie or show it stops and we have to wait like ten minutes to buffer just for it to stop again in five minutes. Not worth it!

    Why no screen cast on HTC butterfly? I was excited when I heard that it support HTC. But no butterfly... Could you allow it?

    From a tech company to not support a major phone is completely mind blowing. 1 star for the slap in the face to HTC one m8 owners everywhere

    It's the way that it integrates with your mobile devices that makes Chromecast special. I've now become a huge YouTube fan because of the intuitive way it works.
