Most of the time you are not casting from your phone/tablet to the Chromecast. Instead the tablet is a glorified remote control. The tablet instructs the Chromecast to start playing a Netflix movie. Once the media starts playing the tablet does nothing (you can switch it off if you really want). I actually prefer this to a remote. It's much easier to flick through Netflix movies or my Plex collection on a tablet than using a remote.

Machines that have broken down will work perfectly when the repairman arrives.
