Those living in a city with Google Fiber available will receive an update soon which will turn their Google Fiber TV box into Chromecast. The tech giant company has announced that they are adding Google cast in every Google Fiber TV box. Google cast is the technology that powers the popular Chromecast dongle. This is a big advantage to the TV box users that widen the availability of content where users can easily cast the movies, shows, music and other content in the big screen at home.
This update will be rolled out by the next week after which all the users of Google Fiber TV box can have access to several contents from the plethora of apps on their TV. But it is important to mention that some of the big content services such as Spotify, Hulu, HBO Now, WatchESPN, Disney Junior, Disney Channel, Disney XD, and Watch ABC are the app that does not support casting in their Fiber TV Box yet. However, things might be changed soon for good.
Users Can Cast Content From Different Platforms
Users can cast content from different platforms such as Android, iOS, and Chrome. This Google cast app is just to control the streaming of content on TV but in order to access other functionalities such as recording TV and listings they need to depend on the Fiber TV app.
Google Fiber is available in some selected cities in the United States and people lucky enough to live in those cities will really appreciate the built in Google Cast feature in their Google Fiber Box TV which does not require any additional set up equipment or process. Not just that rather it will also save an HDMI port as it is not required to plug in a separate Chromecast dongle. So, Google TV Fiber Box users stay tuned and get the update as soon as it is released by Google.
