Kind of Chromecast: Google Cast Chrome extension plays YouTube on GoogleTV

I installed the Google Cast Chrome extension yesterday which many thought, including me, was the Chromecast extension. In any case I was playing around with it today on Chrome and my Sony GoogleTV. To my surprise I was able to connect from YouTube to the GoogleTV to playback videos.

It does not work from Chrome Tab, even though if you are cast something from YouTube some infos appear on the extension button on Chrome, but works fine within YouTube. It allows you to play videos in fullscreen, it does not take over you computer as you just continue to work on other things. Basically you cast YouTube on the GoogleTV. So basically the Chromecast dongle makes any compatible TV a Google Cast device.

Also YouTube on the iPad has the same ability to cast videos to Google TV !

Now I think this was around for sometime but I was not aware until yesterday announcement of Chromecast.

Google Glass review

Techcrunch has a great review of Google Glass

In this video, we discuss some of the quick assumptions about Glass, warranted or otherwise, and give you a look through the eyes of the device in action. Stepping outside, pulling up an address, replying to an email and listening to the latest NYTimes headlines is a pretty seamless experience. Google calls the technology “calm,” since it doesn’t require you to pull a device out of your pocket, unlock a screen or tap any buttons.”
