Google turns on Chromecast support for YouTube Live streams

Google Chromecast
With the rollout of Chromecast to more markets, Google is turning on more functionality for the $49 dongle, announcing that live casting from YouTube is now available for mobile users.

Google initially enabled casting of YouTube live events from the desktop back in April, however this new announcement allows casting from mobile. Announced on the Google Chrome Google+ page, the announcement also included a link to some upcoming YouTube Live events to try out.


So, if you haven’t already, here’s another reason to head over to Google Play, or out into the real world to JB Hifi or Dick Smith and grab a Chromecast.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
