    I purchased a Chromecast dongle this week. I used the Chromecast app on my Android phone to setup/sync the dongle and the phone. I now cast to the TV from the Netflix and Hulu apps on my phone. At this point i'm wondering what the use of the Chromecast app is. Do the Netflix and Hulu apps use the Chromecast app in the background to cast? Or is the Chromecast app just used for initial setup? Once setup is done, what purpose does the app serve?

    The Chromecast app confirms the Wi-Fi connection between the device and the dongle is correct and it also checks for updates, etc.
