Google Cast Integration Comes To Chrome

Google is celebrating the 2 year anniversary of their Google Cast extension for Chrome by moving the plugin into the web browser itself.

Cast now comes fully integrated within Chrome, with a relevant icon set to appear when you’re on websites with content capable of being ‘Cast’ to your TV.

According to a blog post by the company, “Since we launched Chromecast, we’ve been working to make casting even better. We’ve launched new Cast devices like Chromecast Audio and partnered with other manufacturers to make Cast-enabled TVs and speakers.  We’ve also made significant improvements in quality, with the vast majority of casting sessions now in HD.”

“Casting from Chrome has become incredibly popular: In the past month alone, people have casted more than 38 million times from Chrome, watching and listening to more than 50 million hours of content.”

The move will bring the process of casting video content to a TV or music content to speakers down to only a couple of clicks, which is sure to be a welcome change.
