Status bar icons

I have an icon in the status bar next to the bluetooth icon. I am trying to find out what it is for. It is a solid rectangle with an outline, and (3) smaller lines at the bottom left corner that look like the wifi icon at a 45° angle. It looks like a chromecast icon, but I do not have chromecast.

Also, it's there a way to actually find out what app or process the icons are being activated from within the phone settings. I looked at the icon list that is in the phone's system, but can not find it.

I have no cast apps on my phone.  I just upgraded from the note 5 and seen this icon. Is there a cast app bundled with the note 9 or was the with your pixel?
