Google's Chromecast now allows users to play YouTube videos that are embedded in the page when flicking they flick a website to their TV. The announcement was made by Google today, according to VentureBeat.

Previously, users of Chromecast had to open the YouTube website or a mobile app to activate screen mirroring on videos. When the firm put embedded video integration to test, some exceptions to this cropped up. But now,it appears that this feature is now available for most videos, based on a Google support page that was first seen by Android Police, the report detailed.

This new functionality is worth noting because it gives Chromecast users the freedom to use the device in the way that it was truly made for. Most people find videos that they want to watch directly from the YouTube site. Mostly, the videos that they watch are embedded in a news article that they are reading on their smartphone or tablet. Now, Chromecast gives them the option to flick those videos to their TV screen and continue reading the articles from their mobile device, VentureBeat reported.
