Google Cast

Google Cast is a feature that allows users to stream their favorite entertainment from their phone, tablet or laptop right to their TV or speakers.

Google Cast technology allows Android, iOS, and Chrome web apps to stream content – like video, audio and screen sharing (mirroring) – to audio or TV devices. The technology is used by both app developers (using the APK in their app, allowing their users to “cast” or “stream” their content), and device manufacturers (building audio or TV products that act as a “receiver” for this content).

Please explore our brand guidelines to learn how to communicate the benefits of this technology to your users.
