Can anyone tell me what this icon is? or what type of apps have an Icon that looks like that?
it's the battery charge level icon
Oops, no it's the wireless network status icon
This is the battery charge level Icon? it appears sporadically, doesn't show up when the phone is plugged in and charging.
Wireless network status?
I thought this was the battery charge level Icon.
nope, that's a different icon. I think it is some app in the background
Isn't that Chromecast?
That's the Google casting icon.
That's what I thought, but I don't have chromecast on my cell... and in my google activities I see this address com.ws.sc
what does google casting do? I can google it.. just bein lazy!
Google cast is the Chromecasts app
That's just Google saying, hey, you can cast this, whatever is on your screen
It's not automatically casting something?
I am normally not this dumb with cellphones. One day it just started showing up
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?!
