Just in time for Christmas, we are happy to announce Chromecast support for the Livedrive Android app.
Google has created a device called a Chromecast. This is a small dongle that plugs into your TV, enabling you to display content from your phone or tablet on your TV. It’s great for watching your videos on a bigger screen.

Today we have added Chromecast support to the Livedrive Android app, enabling you to watch videos from your Pro Suite account on your TV. This is perfect for viewing all of your home videos this Christmas.
Setting up Chromecast streaming
With your Chromecast plugged into your TV follow these instructions:
Connect your phone/tablet to the same Wi-Fi network as your Chromecast.
Find a video in the new Livedrive Android app, long press the file and select “Stream” from the file menu. The video will start playing.
Click on the new cast icon at the top right of the app to connect to Chromecast.
The content should then be streamed to your TV.
