Developer: Facebook. Facebook Messenger app review.
If you download the app only to experience the hyped fun, rather than the messaging core feature, you can make use of the VoIP calls or video chat features. That is why the developers created Secret Conversation mode in order to respect the privacy of its users.
This feature is called secret conversation as it is encrypted end-to-end. This is what make the messages can only be read by the recipients when using the secret conversation mood. This feature is also available on Whatsapp app that is also developed by Facebook. Here are the pros and cons of this app. When it comes to the setup, you will be asked to enter your mobile phone numbers and give permission to access your contacts.
Just navigate to your favorite website and send the embedded video with a single tap to your cast enabled TV or gaming console. * The app does NOT mirror your full Android device, it just pushes the video part of a website to your Nexus Player.
* To play mp4, m3u8 or other videofiles directly on Nexus Player just enter or paste the full video-url in the browser address bar. * If a specific web-video, online-movie, livestream or live-tv show does not cast, please check our FAQ or send the website and video link to [email protected] by using the report feature in the app. * Security Note: For your safety Video & TV cast only needs minimal Android permissions to work. Unlike others we do NOT access your identity data, accounts, device id, phone status, gps location or contacts. If "No videolink found to cast" stays, please play the video locally in the browser first and open it in fullscreen mode, then wait some seconds.
