Google’s new Photowall app lets you beam photos from your device to your Chromecast

Photowall

Google has just launched a new application called Photowall which basically allows you to mirror images from your smartphone to your Chromecast running television. There are dedicated apps for Android and iOS with the ability to access Photowall from the Chrome browser on the desktops as well.

Google claims this is an experimental project with several more changes to come in the future, but this is a great idea nevertheless. So if you’re having a large gathering at your house, the guests can now show off some of their images on the large screen for all to see.

After users are finished with their session of photo sharing, Google will automatically create a YouTube video of all the images shared. So if you have a Chromecast and a computer, smartphone or a tablet, make sure you give this a try. If you own an Android device, you can download the Photowall app from the link below.

  1. I don’t think AllCast has any photo wall kind of a feature. I’ll do some research and get back to you on that.

  2. The Xbox One app is using smartglass I think. I’m under the impression that Smartglass is also functional on Xbox One because I use it on my older Xbox 360.

  3. Is this already not available in the AllCast app from Kaushik Dutta? I’m not sure, but there are plenty of features on that app.

  4. You should get the Chromecast. It’s only $35, I believe. If you have a fast Internet connection and an Android device, it really is extremely useful.

  5. I keep seeing these commercials and I am not sure if we are going to get this or not. Right now we already have the Xbox One that will let us sign-in under the Microsoft user and I have access to my entire camera roll. Isn’t this the same thing?
