What is Chromecast built-in and how does it work
Chromecast built-in delivers multi-screen and audio experiences by connecting the devices you already know and love to your TV or audio device.
Casting is as simple as pressing a button from your favorite app. Watch your favorites on the TV while switching to another app. Listen to your top tunes while taking a phone call or sending a text, all without interrupting what’s playing on the speakers.
With Chromecast built-in, your phone is your personalized remote control that you can use to browse, play, pause, and even make playlists.
And you don’t have to learn anything new! You can cast from Android tablets and smartphones, iPhones, iPads, Mac, Windows and Chromebooks to your TV or speakers.
How does gaming work on the Chromecast platform?
Chromecast is a very unique and innovative platform for gaming with a number of interesting possibilities:
Single player gaming
Multi-player gaming in your home
Online Multi-player gaming
Your mobile device acts as a controller with a second screen which can be used in unique ways when playing multi-player games in your living room, such as displaying information or stats which your opponents should not see.
The games themselves can be rendered using a couple of techniques depending on how the game developer choses to implement them:
The game app on your mobile device renders the game on your TV
If it is a cloud based game, the game can be rendered/streamed using online gaming servers or as a temporary web app running on your TV and your phone simply acts as the controller.
