Microsoft Edge can cast media content in the latest Windows Insider build

Microsoft has released a new build for Windows 10 today for Windows Insiders who are on the Fast Ring. One interesting new feature in this build is the ability for users to cast photos, videos, and music from Microsoft’s Edge web browser onto any Miracast and DLNA enabled device connected to the same network.

Users can cast media such as YouTube videos, Facebook photo albums, and music streaming from Pandora by clicking on the ellipsis menu to the right of the address bar, click or touch Cast media to device, then choose which device they want to cast their media onto.

Unfortunately, media content that is protected by DRM, such as videos from Netflix and Hulu, is not supported for the time being. Hopefully support for protected media will be available in the future.
