On the big screen

Having a Chromecast is seriously one of the coolest things. I love being able to use my phone, go on to an app, and then cast whatever is on that app to the screen of my TV. Normally you do that with Netflix, Youtube, music apps, it is pretty handy. I go on this site called Twitch to watch livestream of gamers, for some reason my chromecast does not like to actually cast this one livestreamer's past broadcasts which is fairly annoying. I found a solution! There is this feature on chromecast where you can actually cast your phone screen to your tv, so it will see your homescreen and any app you go into. And so I had the video playing on my phone and was able to cast it to my TV. The only problem is, is you cannot go to anything else since it is just casting that one screen. And any notifications that pop up will be shown on TV. So, a little inconvenient but still pretty cool. And I think it is kind of funny when the notifications pop up. Technology, I love it!
