    This is the battery charge level Icon? it appears sporadically, doesn't show up when the phone is plugged in and charging.

    It's not casting anything. Even if it did it would only cast to your WiFi network.
    But it only casts with a Chromecast or any streaming device.

    That probably means that there is a nearby device that your phoen is detecting with Android's Nearby API that will allow casting, so should you go into YouTube or a castable app, you could cast content.

    Give it a try and see if you're able to cast something?!
