Like many ChromeCast users, I've been waiting for this backdrop feature since I first connected it to my TV. I've had a variety of applications that allowed me to put photos on my television using ChromeCast but this direct integration is so much better. I look forward to many other Backdrop features in the future. I love using my television as a passive information device whenever possible. -- Douglas
If you're concerned about Google neglecting Chromecast lately, take heart: The tech giant has not forsaken the $35 TV stick. On the contrary, this week the company finally delivered on Backdrop, a new feature it first promised at the Google I/O developer conference last June.
