All things considered, the Android TV set-top boxes will bolster Google Cast, which implies that, as building chief Dave Burke jested from the stage, “As Cast shows signs of improvement, so does Android TV.”
Without a doubt, Chromecast is something individuals would already be able to purchase—propelled last July, it’s presently in 18 nations and is the best offering media streamer on Amazon in five of them. Google says it’s sold a large number of units, which bodes well as it retails for just $35.

Push off the shackles of Wi-Fi
Starting at the present moment, an iOS or Android gadget must be on a similar Wi-Fi organize as a Chromecast to cast video to it. Be that as it may, not for long.

Reflecting will take off finished the following couple of weeks. It isn’t bolstered on each Android gadget yet, however will begin with a decent modest bunch of prevalent models from Samsung, LG, and HTC, and in addition some Nexus gadgets. More will come later.
Setting it like it’s hot
At the point when your Chromecast isn’t demonstrating video, it shows a developing gathering of dazzling photos, however there hasn’t been any official method to change that element or motivate it to demonstrate your own photos. Another Backdrop tab in the Chromecast portable application will change that.
Clients will have the capacity to set at least one Google+ collections to show as the screensaver. In the event that you don’t care for your own mages, you can look over topical sustain, including Places, which is amazing Google Earth photographs, or Art, which is obviously celebrated depictions.
