If you’re one of the people who enjoys the art that cycles through on your Chromecast when it’s dormant, then you’ll want to take note of what Google is doing for the platform now. Google is allowing users to personalize their Chromecast experience more by using art from their own devices, satellite imagery from around the world, art from museums and galleries, and news and lifestyle images.
Using this setting is quite simple – all you need to do is open the Chromecast app on your phone or tablet (make sure it’s updated to the latest version first), navigate to the section in the slide-out menu that says “Backdrop” and press “OK” to personalize your Chromecast. This section of the Chromecast app also tells you which imagery is currently being displayed on your screen. It makes it easier to find the original picture and learn more about it. If it’s a picture coming from an article, the Backdrop section of the app will also let you read the article and if it’s a satellite picture, you can open up Google Maps and check out the picture there.
