Google Cast gets integrated directly into Chrome, letting you show content without an extension

Google just baked its cast feature directly into the latest public version of Chrome browser, nearly after two months it had introduced this option into the beta version of Chrome. Google Cast is the protocol that has been powering Chromecast as an extension for the past two years, allowing users to broadcast content from their favorite websites on their TV using Chromecast. From now on, they can easily sling media without an extension.

You can find this option in Chrome’s menu. If you can’t find it there, it means you need to upgrade your browser. Just go to menu, then help and from About Google Chrome option you can update to the latest version. In case you want the tab-bean button on your toolbar, the old Cast extension will evidently still live on, according to this page.

You can image content in video calls on Hangouts using Google Cast, and students, as well as teachers, are also allowed to share screens using the cast for education app. Google just did an amazing job with this direct Chrome integration, which will surely bring Cast a step closer to being a seamless transit channel for your digital life. And for this, all you need is the latest version of Chrome.
