Google(s goog) has been testing this feature for a while, but today it became widely available: Google Drive users on the web can now run presentations straight from Google Drive to a Chromecast. If you’ve got a crispy slide deck on Google’s cloud suite, simply point your mouse to the Present button in the top right corner; a drop down menu option labeled “Present on another device” is the ticket to getting your presentation onto a screen. Of course, you’ll need to be on the same Wi-Fi network as the Chromecast, and you’ll need the Google Cast Chrome extension enabled. Although Google hasn’t mentioned the possibility of this feature coming to Android or iOS(s aapl), I’ll go out on a limb and say it’s only a matter of time.
