It turns out adopting Google’s Chromium rendering engine has unexpected benefits.

While Microsoft’s new Edge browser has a cast feature, this only supports Micacast and other video casting technologies. However, simply enabling a few flags will get you the full Chromecast experience.

To enable the feature:

In the latest Edge Preview:

Enter edge://flags in the address bar.

Search for #load-media-router-component-extension and enable it.

Search for #views-cast-dialog and enable it.

Restart the browser.

You should now be able to cast YouTube video by pressing the Cast button in the video, or other video by using the Cast Menu under More Tools

This feature by itself may be worth switching rendering engines. Hopefully, it will make it through to the final version of the browser.
