Chromecast now able to stream web-based Google Play content

Google’s Chromecast has been on a roll lately with its updates as not only did a new build for the streaming dongle release recently, but it also received the support of ten new content partners. It seems the Chromecast updates train just keeps chugging along as owners of the dongle will be able to stream Google Play music and movie content from the web, smartphones and tablets through the use of the Google Cast extension for Chrome.

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. Try it today.
