Chromecast streams web videos from your Android phone or tablet

This week, Google’s(s goog) Chromecast learned a new trick. The small device can now stream embedded web videos from Android phones and tablets directly from the Chrome beta browser. It seems to work best with YouTube videos but many other sites are supported as well.

We discuss this new feature on the Chrome Show podcast and also chat about the newest Chromebooks, recently announced by Samsung and expected in stores next month. The Toshiba Chromebook 13 got a review while hands-free Google voice search arrived in the Chrome OS beta channel. Tune in below to hear more or download the show here.
