Disclosed herein is a mechanism for generating viewing histories including casted media content. The mechanism can receive information indicating that a first user device is casting a media content item to a display device. The mechanism can add the media content item to a viewing history associated with the first user device. The mechanism can additionally receive, from a second user device, an indication that the second user device is connected to the display device and/or that the second user device is capable of casting content to the display device. The mechanism can then add the media content item to an indirect viewing history associated with the second user device.
