Both devices can access the same content (assuming the provider doesn't have access restrictions that prevent this). However
, because they're separate
devices, the content being play will not be in sync.
however, "move" a casted stream from one device to another by opening the same application on the new device and taking control of Chromecast from the new device.
For example, I can...
- Open YouTube in Chrome on desktop
- Find and play a video
- Cast the video to Chromecast
- Launch YouTube on my phone
- Connect to Chromecast
- Continue playback of the video on my phone from whatever point it was at on Chromecast
Note that in the above scenario the video is never playing back in two places at once.
