You know that section in the Google Play Store for Chromecast stuff? (Can’t blame you if you don’t.) Google has gone and changed the name of that little section of Chromecast compatible apps to Google Cast. Google’s $35 dongle isn’t getting a new name (the Chromecast will remain the Chromecast as far as I can tell) just the section in the Play Store has been altered.
So, why the name change, Google?
Well, Android TV is supposed to be on its way, and it’s pretty obvious that Google wants to pave the way for the various devices that are about to roll out. Does that mean we’re about to see Google Cast branded devices? As the all-knowing magic 8 Ball sometimes says, signs point to yes.
