With the Google Cast Chrome extension you are able to send content to other mobile/desktop devices that support Google Cast and to your Chromecast. The extension allows you to play and search for content to play on your Chrome browser using Chromecast.
Add New Options To Your Browser
If you have Google Cast installed on your Chrome web browser then you will see a set of new options available that will allow you to play videos on your media player via your Chromecast. Your computer is able to act as a remote control where you are able to control the playback and browse videos to watch. The extension has had its fair share of bugs but most of them were not bugs they were problems people were encountering because the developers haven't correctly explained how to use the extension in conjunction with Chromecast. Check online forums to find answers to some of this extension's more puzzling problems.
It Gives You The Option Of Using Your Desktop Device
The Google Cast extension is worth your time and it would be worth your money except for the fact that it is free. If you have invested in Chromecast then there is no reason why you shouldn't download and install this extension. Online reviews that claim there are bugs are laboring under misapprehensions.
