From here, Google will make finding apps optimized for Chromecast much easier for you. They also announced backdrop, so that you will still have content on your screen in a way even when it is on standby. On top of everything else, mirroring content, even the camera app, is now possible from your Android device.

We already have a hands-on of the Google Chromecast here, if you want to check it out.

  4. I got a Chromecast via a relative from the US a month ago (on sale for $29 at Amazon).

    While it is disappointing that sites like Netflix and Hulu are unavailable here (officially), I like it that the number of apps that allow you to “cast” is increasing everyday. E.g. the app “FilmOn TUFF” also allows for a number of videos to be available. Also I hear that VLC will be compatible with Chromecast soon.
