At the latest Google I/O conference, Google announced its new Cast application programming interfaces that enable mobile game developers to bring new experiences to the TV.
Google Cast – New way to play games on a TV
Google Cast technology allows you to activate an app on your mobile device or a computer and then see it play back on the big TV screen. Google’s streaming stick has now a new way to help you play games. The Chrome Cast device has seen rapid growth by enabling watching videos and photos from phones, tablets, laptops and desktop computers on a TV set. Chromecast owners are now viewing about 60-70 percent more content per day via this streaming device than when it first launched about two years ago. Now Google is making it even easier for game developers to let us use both, mobile gadgets and computers, to play games on a TV set by streaming them to the big screens in the living room.
Latest improvements oft the Google Cast platform help game developers to get a way to your living room
These improvements are fulfilling a dream for game developers of enabling people to play games on TVs without the need in an expensive game console. The great thing for gamers is that there is no limit to the number of people who could use let’s say a smartphone to connect to the same game on a TV set. You could gather a crowd of people in your living room dancing to Ubisoft’s Just Dance Now game by waving their phones around. Not that is a threat to popular game consoles, but in fact it let us play games that we’re unable to play on a console.
