Result of it is, Now You can run a classic PC game Quake III now supports Chromecast (when you’re using it with an Android phone or tablet).

Quake® III on your TV with chromecast

Google took an existing Android port of the Quake III Arena open source engine, tweaked it to work with a Chromecast, and ended up with a solution that lets you run the 1999 3D shooter game on your phone while viewing the action on your TV. You can use your phone as a game controller, but you could also pair a Bluetooth or USB gamepad with your phone for a more PC/console-like gaming experience.

While Google hasn’t released a Quake III for Chromecast app to the Play Store, the company has released the source code it used during a demonstration at Google I/O. You’ll need to compile it yourself and copy game data from Quake III in order to actually play the game.
