Sharing content with one person or even a group of close friends is easy: just message them with a link in a group conversation. At parties or get togethers with a lot of people or people not proficient with technology, casting a video from your device to a compatible television or media player may be more convenient. Devices like Chromecast and sites like YouTube make this process a breeze.

For example, Chromecast can work with Google Chrome to stream whatever is displayed on the browser to the TV or monitor that Chromecast is plugged in to.
