You can now cast TikTok’s The McFarlands from your phone to your TV to share a laugh with everyone in the room. Users can cast TikTok videos from their phones to any Chromecast device, including dongles and those built into TVs.
This is just one of the Chromecast upgrades Google announced at CES 2024.
Google also announced the expansion of Fast Pair support for Chromecast with Google TV and other Google TV devices. This would allow easy pairing with compatible earbuds and headphones for private listening. Fast Pair, which Google says has been used in more than 660 million pairings to date, will also apply to speakers and will give users the ability to switch back to default TV audio at any time.
The company also announced that Chromecast will be built into more TVs, including in new 2024 LG TVs, Hisense ULED and ULED X Series TVs, and TCL Q Class and QM7 TV models.
Google TV devices will also come with Chromecast built-in, like new Google TV streaming boxes and TVs.
In an attempt to expand Chromecast more than ever before, Google is making Chromecast available on select LG TVs in hotels and even hospitals. Through LG Hospitality and Healthcare, Chromecast would work in these compatible TVs without requiring users to log into each app they want to stream. This feature will be available later this year.
