Why Take This Course

By adding Google Cast functionality to your app, you can increase engagements and monetization. For example, Comedy Central found that Chromecast users watch 50 percent more videos and make 1.5 more visits to their app, than their average users. Likewise, Haystack TV found that Android TV users watched 80 minutes of video per week, vs. just 40 for mobile-only users. The best part for developers is that both Google Cast and Android TV come with extensive libraries that do most of the heavy lifting for you.
