Google has allowed Chromecast owners enjoy YouTube live streams as they happen through a PC, but now the company has enabled this feature for mobile devices too. Simply browse to a live stream in the YouTube app and hit the cast button, which will work its magic in the usual way. While the functionality has only just been announced, Google notes it 'soft-launched' the feature a little while ago.

Google has also highlighted some upcoming live events in the announcement post, including the Electric Daisy Carnival (ECC) on June 20-22 and the ASP World Tour on July 10. If you haven't yet picked up the Chromecast for your TV, check out our in-depth review of Google's popular product.
