A software update has been rolled out to Google+ which lets users cast their streams to a Chromecast-connected television. Available in theĀ 4.5.0.7X release, the feature gives us another reason to leave a Chromecast turned on in the office. Interestingly enough, the change log does not make reference to the new option; only “stability improvements and bug fixes” are found this time. Nevertheless, the feature must be toggled on the server side of things. Pictures display nicely, taking up the entire screen and showing details at both the top and bottom, however we still have to refresh things on our device. Set that to automatically adjust and we’re in love.
