If you want to use your Windows Phone as a remote to play YouTube videos on your Chromecast, then some of that excitement is coming to Windows Phone. Now we have Tube Cats – with the Tube Cast app you can link your Windows Phone to Google’s Chromecast dongle to play YouTube videos on your HDMI TV. Just tap on a YouTube video on your phone and have it play immediately on your TV.
The Tube Cast app in simple to use, it will automatically connect and select your Chromecast. It will also let you search, select and play YouTube videos on your flat-screen. But the app lacks some significant features — it can’t pause, stop or rewind playback and can not cast video besides YouTube. App currently only supports initiating playback.
But the general idea behind Windows Phone, YouTube and Chromecats to get together for the Tube Cast app is great, hopefully it will get more functionality in further update. If you have a Chromecast and a Windows Phone, then this app could take your entertainment to next level. You can download Tube Cast app from the Windows Phone store for free.
