At today’s Google I/O conference, Google also updated several new features for Google Cast. The first is Cast Connect, which allows you to directly share content from your mobile phone, tablet or Chrome browser to an app on Android TV. Compared with the existing solutions, it is more directional and provides users with more flexibility to interact with the TV app.

At the same time, Stream Transfer can synchronize the playback status between applicable devices, while Stream Expansion allows you to add new audio output devices during video or music playback. However, Google has not yet given a time for the opening of the new features, so we have to wait and see when we can experience it.
