6) If recording your camera, you have the option minimise, maximise, enter full screen, turn off the camera and move the camera widget to any position on screen.

Movable Cast App and Camera Widget:

- The Cast app and camera widget are both movable on the screen.

- Prior to recording, you can move the Cast app around the screen.

- When screen recording, you can get the look and feel just right by positioning the camera widget where you want it to get the best result.

Controls and Tools while you are Casting:

While recording in Cast, you have some controls and tools to get your recording just right.
