Use the Chromecast app to stream multimedia from your Android device to speakers or a TV.

The Chromecast app lets you cast video or audio from your Android device to televisions, speakers and other supported consumer electronics. To cast means to stream or mirror the content, and this app works from Android smartphones, tablets. laptops and other devices.

When it comes to casting content, you have a number of options. You can cast from a file on your device, such as a movie or song. Chromecast also integrates with numerous apps, such as YouTube, so that you can stream from there as well.

If the app in question has playlist support, you can cast the entire playlist and do so on a loop. Otherwise, you can create your own playlists and cue your own content. You can’t mix local content and app content, however, or at least not with ease. What you can do is stream from your local network even over the Internet, which is handy, for instance, when giving a presentation at work. Simply access the videos and other content you need from your home computer.

Chromecast has its own protocols, and that approach has both advantages and disadvantages. On the plus side, this approach is what allows Chromecast to work consistently at such a high level. On the downside, the app can’t just stream to any device. It requires an integrated or connected Chromecast, Chromecast Audio or Google Home device. Without that, the feature set is limited.
