The folks at Hulu have expanded their recent Chromecast efforts and thanks to a new update the company’s iOS app now moonlights as a remote control for the Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 game consoles. Users can pause, stop fast-forward and rewind content directly from their mobile device. This will definitely come in handy, because it takes the strain off your controller’s battery, which should be reserved strictly for gaming.

In addition to navigating your media experience, the refreshed software adds a bit of a second screen experience by letting you search and queue content from your mobile device without interrupting playback on your TV. In order to take advantage of this new feature, you’ll need to fire up Hulu Plus on your respective game console and then launch the media streaming app on your smartphone or tablet and tap the cast icon.

If you’re more of a visual type, check out the demo video below to see the process in action.
