Google has been working hard to stay current with their streaming stick, and this is really the best part about competition. Google has to do more - all companies do - in order to keep your business. The update coming for the Chromecast will make it easier for developers to work more closely with this platform. The idea is that your mobile device can become the controller and the content is displayed on the TV. That sounds like a great update to me!
Google said it will begin offering new capabilities that make it easy for developers to create more interactive apps that run on a smartphone, tablet or PC, and then wirelessly stream to its Chromecast device, which plugs in to a television. One example is with video games, whose developers can stream a game's visuals to a television and use mobile devices as controllers.
