The NBC app for Android devices offers up full episodes and clips of top shows, and now supports Google’s own streaming accessory.

The most recent update to NBC’s¬†mobile app means that users can push TV episodes selected on their smartphone or tablet to another monitor, taking the action to a bigger screen.

Chromecast support was a highly-requested feature up until this most recent release, so the news that NBC has finally added Chromecast compatibility will put smiles on plenty of faces.

In our review of Google’s Chromecast (2015), we found the streaming stick a delight to use, complimenting the TV accessory on an improved user interface and seamless overall experience.

The NBC app for Android lets you watch your favorite shows for free, provided you enter your TV provider username and password. Whilst entering these details will give you access to the app’s full library, it’s possible to watch content without entering the information, although there’s less to choose from.

Hundreds of episodes of classic shows like Miami Vice and Battlestar Galactica are waiting over on the NBC mobile app, along with more recent hits like The Blacklist, The Voice and Saturday Night Live. Users can highlight their ‘favorite’ shows to have them saved for easy access on return visits to the app.

If you fancy taking your NBC app experience to the living room, download the latest update now.
