As you can read below, the Google Play Music Mini Player App² is already taking of this for our greatest pleasure. And if you're not happy with the default shortcuts, you can customize them at chrome://extensions and click on the "Keyboard shortcuts" link at the very bottom of this page.
Be aware that global commands are not enabled by default yet at the moment in Chrome OS.
Google Now Launcher gives you quick access to Google Now, while keeping your apps right where you want them. Just tap home and then swipe right to access Google Now cards that show you just the right information, at just the right time. And anytime you see the search box at the top of your screen, you can say “Ok Google” (if you’re in the US, UK, or Canada), or you can tap the microphone button to trigger voice input. From there, you can ask a question, or tell your phone what to do, like send a message, get directions, or play a song. If you'd rather type your query, tap the Google search box, which now loads faster than ever.
Google Now Launcher also gives you a beautiful, immersive, and simple experience. The full-screen, larger viewing area lets your wallpaper pop from every pixel. And of course you can place your favorite apps anywhere you like.
If you’ve got a Nexus or Google Play edition device with Android 4.4 KitKat, try Google Now Launcher today by getting it from the Google Play Store here:
I have a Roku connected to my main television. It has a lot of apps that everyone can use. I'll single out Amazon Video in this particular case because it's most closely related to Google Play.
Everyone in my household can use the Roku and access the library of content I've purchased on Amazon. It's a single device that does all the work of delivering content. Chromecast doesn't have this. Chromecast requires you to log in to the account that owns the media on every device that wants to view it. The Chromecast, by itself, has no account awareness.
If I buy a season of The Walking Dead on Google Play, and my fiance wants to watch a few episodes while I'm not home, she either has to buy it herself or log into my account on her phone/computer (which is just a pain for a number of reasons). As far as I know, you can't just log into the Google Play Movies app with a different account; it just works based on what account is tied to the device. If I bought it on Amazon, this isn't an issue because the Roku has access to it.
I really hope Google Play introduces the concept of a "household" for its media, where I can specify a limited number of other accounts that can access my purchased library.
I'm always on the lookout for OSS made with Laravel to use as a reference for my projects.
Is the Chromecast capable of streaming live content? For instance, if WatchESPN wanted to implement Chromecast capabilities, is it even feasible to stream live broadcasts via the device? I haven't read through the documentation so I'm not sure if it's possible.
All I've seen in apps so far is streaming previously-recorded media.
It will be up to the app developers and content owners to decide to implement this functionality.
