Google Chromecast Can Now Stream From The Web

The other day Google Chromecast received a bunch of new applications, and now Google has announced another new feature for the device, the ability to stream music and videos direct from the web.

You can now stream music and video direct from the Google Play website on your Google Chromecast device, which means that you can now stream content without your smartphone or tablet.


When you don’t have a phone or tablet handy, you can visit and cast your Google Play music, movies and shows to your TV directly from the web. Make sure you have the Google Cast extension installed on your Chrome web browser (, and then look for the Cast icon in the Google Play web player. Click it and your movie or song will instantly start playing on your TV through Chromecast. Google Play offers new release movies and next-day TV shows, as well as more than 20 million songs that you can enjoy from your phone, tablet, computer or TV.
