Google wants to make streaming Chrome tabs to a Chromecast even easier. Right now, you need to install the Google Cast Chrome extension to send music, videos, and webpages to your television. The company is now working on a way to build the feature directly into its Chrome browser. This would then allow anyone to send whatever is on their browser window to a nearby Chromecast connected TV with a simple right click on the page and selecting the ‘cast’ option.
The new cast feature is not available in the general release of Chrome, but beta users can try it out by enabling the experimental ‘Media Router’ feature over at chrome://flags/.
