We’ve covered the Google
Chromecast in some detail, including our full review
, and we’ve found that using the device is incredibly easy, including with the Chromecast
app for Android
. Google has now expanded app availablity by introducing an official Chromecast app for iOS
, as well.
Like the Android version, Chromecast on iOS is free, and it lets you “cast” video from YouTube and Netflix as well as movies and music from Google Play to your TV or other display. You can quickly set up your Chromecast device with the app, which includes connecting to your wireless network and managing settings.
The addition of an iOS Chromecast app was of course to be expected, and now it’s here, so users can now control Google Chromecast with their iPhones and iPads as well as Android devices--and of course, from a PC.
