    Drive-In Movies One of the chief complaints about the Chromecast is that it doesn't support local media playback, so you can't tap into content you have saved in the cloud. But with media management app Plex, you can stream music, movies, and photos via the Chromecast. Plex organizes your scattered content and lets you watch it from tablets, TVs, phones, and more. Sign up for the service, then download the Plex app, open it, and send your content to the Chromecast.

    Life Is But a Stream Do you feel that your streaming is murky? When casting from the Chrome browser, you can change its quality. Make sure the Chromecast extension is installed, and click the Cast icon on the top right side of your browser. Select Options, and a new tab will open, allowing you to change settings. Choose from standard (480p), high (720p), and extreme (720p high bitrate) to clear things up.

    Photos Similarly, Chromecast can serve as a modern-day alternative to old-school slideshows; no projectors here. Use an app like PhotoCast for Chromecast (Android and iOS) to show photos from your device, Facebook, Google+, and iCloud. If you want to just show photos from Google+, make sure that the Chromecast and device with the photos are both on the same Wi-Fi network. Then open the photos you want to show and click the cast icon.
