Can I stream HBO Now from Chromecast?
You can use a similar method to watch Netflix on the Chromecast. Now you have another reason to "borrow" your parents' Comcast password. The same goes for most of the game apps Google mentions, although I was able to test a couple. After years of struggling to get traction with Google TV, Google finally found its living-room hit: Chromecast is closing the "app gap" with Roku and Apple TV. If you're invested in the Google Play marketplace for music and videos, the Chromecast is the best way to get that content on your TV and you can't argue with the price. Be respectful, keep it clean and stay on topic.

How to Watch HBO Go on the Chromecast

Now you have another reason to "borrow" your parents' Comcast password. Google's announcement also touted a few new "party" games adding support for Chromecast. All are said to facilitate family fun on the TV screen.

It's worth noting that Chromecast already has more than 50 game titles on its official support page , which now features category tabs yay! All Chromecast-compatible apps work via Google's Cast technology, which allows content from your phone or tablet app to appear on the big screen. The process works well, but since it requires a phone it's less convenient than using a "native" app on a traditional streaming box. I took a few moments to check out how Starz works via Chromecast, and had no complaints; the movie "American Hustle" and the original series "Survivor's Remorse" looked as good as I expected.

The app update for Showtime that enabled Chromecast support hadn't yet appeared by press time, so I didn't test it. The same goes for most of the game apps Google mentions, although I was able to test a couple.

Emoji Party for Chromecast uses emojis as hints for trivia like movie titles above and allowed myself and a co-worker to compete head-to-head on our phones. Just Dance Now made me ape the movements of a dancer on-screen and tracked my accuracy via the phone's accelerometer.
