How to Chromecast Telegram on Your TV

Chromecast Telegram

Telegram is a far superior communication app to the rest. It even offers Telegram Premium at $4.99 per month. By using Telegram’s built-in video player, you can watch videos right from the chat screen. If the video is too big, you might want to cast it on your TV. Using the Chromecast device, you can cast Telegram videos or images to your TV right from your smartphone. As of now, the Cast feature is not available on Telegram (even with Telegram Premium).
