A Mention-worthy Chromecast App For Android

Chrome Browser

Google’s very own browser has had the ability to Chromecast from almost the very start. Even starting out, Chromecasting with the app has had very few user issues.

Audio Chromecast Apps For Android

Google Play Music

Google loves to integrate apps and form a new, complex, and awesome whole. It comes as no surprise to users looking for a speedy and accessible way to Chromecast music that Google’s own Play Music app is one possible solution. Through Google Play Music, users can upload tens of thousands of songs to Google’s servers and then stream them over a multitude of devices.

When a service never falls out of popularity and still continues to improve itself whenever possible, the world gets apps like Pandora. Most of us have probably already used Pandora at one time or another. The developers worked hard to ensure that their service is properly compatible with almost every bit of software and hardware they could find.

Spotify is another popular user choice due to how accessible, quick, and huge it is. Although they were the last to jump on the Chromecast wagon, the service does work, albeit they should work out the few remaining quirks.

Video Chromecast Apps For Android

Google Play Movies and TV

The Google Chromecast Apps for Android are generally well designed but we were genuinely surprised to see how smooth and streamlined the Play Movies and TV app is. All in all, Google managed to squeeze in a lot of visual information while keeping it surprisingly easy to view.

The Tech Exploring team greatly enjoys TED Talks and the TED Android app comes with built-in Chromecast support. While TED Talks may not be as entertaining to the general public as many popular series or movies, there are several interesting talks that can really get the gears moving.

When Chromecast initially launched Netflix was part of the vanguard, the very first few to meet it head on. According to several statistics, many users get Chromecast for Netflix alone. The app has seen updates constantly allowing it to keep up with the times. Needless to say, when it comes to Chromecasting movies and shows, Netflix continues to stay amazing.

Gaming Chromecast App for Android


We are shining the spotlight on gaming because e-sports have been an ever growing trend in the US with increasing booms starting 2011. Twitch is currently the most popular and appreciated go-to service when it comes to streaming games or watching streams. The service is reliable and is ultimately free unless viewers want to support streamers.

The Best Chromecast Apps For Android

Google Cast

While other apps made the list because they had access to great media and means to smoothly Chromecast it in ultra high quality, Google Cast is on this list because it is in itself the tool which can help users organize and manage all their other Chromecasting apps.

Plex is another name associated with the Chromecast vanguard. As Chromecast grew in popularity, so did Plex. The app originally allowed users to turn their PC into a remote homebound server, enabling the possibility of casting a static screen, any audio, or video to any smart device connected to the wireless network.

Chromecast Apps For Android PlexWhen Chromecast came along, all Plex did was to make sure that the casting did not lose any quality while jumping from the PC to the Android device to the TV. The app remains one of the best at what it does. A monthly subscription adds more content to be streamed.

As the last app to be reviewed, AllCast is in no way the absolute best Chromecast app for Android. The Tech Exploring team does rate it as one of the best due to its minimalistic and lightweight behavior, as well as the quality of transfer.

Chromecast Apps For Android AllCastWhile Google Cast also manages other apps, AllCast is a lot simpler in its design – it just casts anything and everything users choose. We were quite happy with AllCast. We do advise users to try out the free version before they buy, however, as opinions can always vary.
