Google brings Photowall for Chromecast to Android, a fun way to share photos on your TV

Photowall for Chromecast

The Chromecast SDK has been public for quite a while now, and during that time we’ve seen quite a few popular apps gain Chromecast support. The little streaming dongle is getting very popular, and we couldn’t be happier about that. To encourage development, Google has released another Chromecast app to the Play Store (and iOS App Store) called Photowall for Chromecast.

This app lets a group of people share photos to your TV using the Chromecast. Much like YouTube’s ability to make a list of videos from multiple devices, all of your friends can beam images to your TV at the same time to create a wall of photos. Photowall will then create a YouTube video of these shared shots.

I like what Google did with this app, and even if it isn’t all that useful, it’s a good way to show developers what can be done with Chromecast. Photowall for Chromecast is available for both iOS and Android, but since we already know what kind of device you’re using, we have posted a widget to get the new app from the Play Store. Give it a shot with your Chromecast and tell us what you think!
