Chromecast

I just picked up the chromecast, I was under the impression it had apps like on AppleTV and you can select from a remote. Maybe I'm not using it right, but if all I can do is use it by streaming from my device to TV then I'll just return it. My 70" Sharp TV can stream Plex via DLNA and my Xbox One has apps like Netflix, Crackle, etc.

 

I was hoping I can use it to connect to my Plex Media Server and use my phone as a remote.

Have you used the plex app for android? You can connect to PMS and cast from your phone to chromecast.

With a Chromecast you stream from a device (Android phone or tablet, or Chrome on a PC or Chromebook).

You can't use it by itself.

There is a few good Apps on the Android platform. Allcast is a good one. Avia or something is another good one. There's lots. The YouTube app does it.

Okay, I was just verifying, my TV lets me stream to it from any device by itself. I'll just return it.
