Twitch for mobile isn’t the most elegant experience out there, and quite frankly it can use plenty of tender love and care to be truly great. But until those sweeping changes arrive, the famous streaming service is now supported by Google’s Chromecast.

The Amazon-owned platform announced the news on Tuesday, saying Android and iOS users can now easily cast the app straight to the search giant’s streaming dongle; it doesn’t get much easier than that. If you prefer to cast directly from your computer, that option is available as well, though you need to have the Google Cast extension for Chrome.

Additionally, iHeartRadio and a handful of Disney streaming apps are also available, giving even more reasons to pick up the $35 Chromecast. Weirdly, Amazon’s Instant Video service still isn’t available for Google’s streamer as a standalone app, so you’ll have to be content with beaming your movies over from your browser for the time being.
