With Google Cast you make it easy for users to include your content as part of their viewing on TV and listening on audio systems. All they need is a TV with a Chromecast plugged in, an Android TV or a Cast for audio device connected to their audio system.
Cast Remote Display lets you cast a second display directly to the TV while running a primary display on the sender. Native games can provide real-time interaction on the TV and user control on the hand-held device. Graphics-intensive apps can now take full advantage of multiscreen experiences via Cast.
Google Cast is a great way to add value and convenience to your content consumption apps, and extend their engagement with your users.
- Cast devices can be low-power devices with memory, CPU, and GPU limitations, so the receiver application should be as lightweight as possible.
- User interaction should only take place on the Cast sender (phone, tablet, or Chrome browser), not the Cast receiver.
- While content is loading, provide animated loading indicators and use transitions to help make things feel faster on the Cast sender interface.
- Let users know your app is “Google Card-enabled” in your store listing and use the Google Cast badge on your website and marketing materials.
