Google Chrome gets option to stream tabs to Hangouts




Google is making it possible to stream open tabs to a Hangouts conversation using the Cast protocol. This new feature will be available from Chrome version 52. As of version 51, Google has the option tabs to ‘Cast’ built to external devices.

The ability to stream open tabs to Hangouts is part of a feature Google on its help pages to explain . According to the Internet giant users can stream their browser tabs to Hangouts and cloud services. There is a button to turn the stream to cloud services, but otherwise is not clearly explained what is possible with the feature.

Furthermore, Google argues that the option tabs to Hangouts is available to Cast from Chrome version 52. Incidentally, there were already references found last year to the new cast capabilities. Currently, Chrome version 52 still in beta, and when the final version comes out is not yet clear.

From version 51 comes standard the ability to Cast tabs to external devices. This functionality was introduced earlier, but had to be manually turned on . The Cast feature now comes standard was therefore already expected.
