Casting contents from handheld to smart TV is made effortlessly with Google Chromecast. It is an inexpensive digital media player by Google to stream content in a picture-perfect quality. In addition to streaming, the customization options on the device seem to be outstanding. Whenever Chromecast doesn’t receive any media files, it will go to the idle state. At that time, it will display a slideshow to make the screen visually appealing. They are the stock images and are of high-quality photos. But, if you wish to customize a bit with your preferred image, it is easily possible with the Google Home app. Directly from Android or iOS, you can change the screensaver or background of Chromecast at any time.
