Google has just made it much easier to stream your personal local media collection through your Chromecast gadget. An updated Files app version by Google includes support that allows you to play your images, videos and audio on Chromecast-compatible gadget, be it a smart display, TV or a speaker.
You just have to go onto a section that contains media and then select a target. Next, you will have an on-screen playback control to navigate the action right from the smartphone you are using. Once the content is being played, you will get a full-screen interface displaying what local media is actually playing. If you are displaying images on Chromecast in this interface, a swipe made from right or left will alter the picture on-screen.
The feature should probably work across all media that you generally play on any Chromecast-capable device you use and can be availed instantly if you are using the latest Files version.
Notably, the technology that works behind such an application is not strictly new. We have been using media casting applications since years now. This new Files update offers you a straightforward option, and could also cover bases in ways that a few applications can’t.
