Since Google have opened up the Chromcast API for developers we are starting to see lots of apps adding support for the steaming protocol and now the first Chromecast app for Windows Phone. Tube Cast for Windows Phone enables you to browse YouTube videos and play them back on your TV via a Chromecast dongle. Once you have started playback you can do something else on your phone. At the moment you can only start playback, there is no pause or fast forward options. The app is a little basic at the moment but it’s see Google’s Chromecast on Windows Phone.

The app is free from the Windows Phone Store.


Play YouTube videos on your Chromecast device! Want to use your Windows Phone as a remote for your Chromecast? Now you can – at least for YouTube!

App currently only supports initiating playback (no pause/stop/rewind).
