Google Chroemcast is the easiest and simple way to cast your videos and other data on the big screen. Now here comes the new feature for Chrome OS, Chrome OS users can now stream their Google Drive videos to TV via Chromecast.
According to a Google+ post on Saturday by Francois Beaufort, Chromium Evangelist at Google, the ‘last Dev Update of Chrome OS’ (found here) includes the updated Video Player app for Chromecasting movies directly from their Google Drive accounts, as well as an updated version of the File Manager.
In the latest Chrome OS dev update, the folks at Google have updated its video player app with the now easily recognisable Chromecast icon. With the Google Cast extension installed, you can now open the Files app, play a movie uploaded to Google Drive and quickly whisk it across to your favorite television.
Provided you’re invested in Google’s hardware and online storage service, this could be a viable workaround.
