Multitasking with Chromecast

It’s never been easier to connect with your friends during your favorite TV shows or movies. With Chromecast, you can text and tweet while watching your favorite scenes without interrupting what’s casting on your TV.

Chromecast’s multitasking capabilities allow you to continue using your laptop, tablet, or mobile device while casting videos or casting a Chrome browser tab. Once you begin casting, your device is available to open other apps, check emails and social media, create YouTube playlists, and even text.

Plus, you’ll still have the ability to use your device as a remote, allowing you to stop, pause, rewind, and fast forward.
