Sky Q has so many new smart features included in that sleek black box, from in-built apps to Vimeo on-demand video that means it’s easy to understand chances are  plenty to be getting on with.

However, we’re willing to bet that you never knew your Sky Q box also has an awesome feature you probebly never knew existed.

It turns out, Sky Q customers can use their next-gen satellite box as a Google ChromeCast.

Typically a Google ChromeCast will plug into the HDMI port of your HD TV and allows owners to beam video content direct from your smartphone, tablet or computer web browser to the big screen in your house.

The feature was largely ignored when Sky first launched Sky Q, more than likely because the TV giant was more keen on promoting their own AirPlay functionality which was also built-in.

Effectively it also lets you play music from your iPhone, iPad or desktop iTunes app around the house.

According to Express Online, users simply open the official YouTube app on an iOS device where you’re able to “take-over” the Sky Q set-top box and play videos on the HD TV.
