This is not exactly <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1362744218><b>news</b></a>, but implementation is more widespread now, so we just thought that we would remind you guys that PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and most Smart TVs already have a limited form of “Chromecast” built-in. From your smartphone, tablet or PC you can cast YouTube and Netflix onto the TV screen wirelessly.<br /><br /><h3>"Chromecast" in game consoles & Smart TVs</h3>Google recently launched the small, cheap <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1374728141><b>Chromecast</b></a> device that enables users to cast content onto the TV screen. But you can already do that with your iOS or Android device combined with a game console or Smart TV. Most 2012 and 2013 Smart TVs, including TVs from Samsung, Panasonic and LG, are supported.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/castps3-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/castps3-1.jpg" alt="Netflix on PS3" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Push Netflix from your mobile to your PS3</i></p><br />On some Smart TVs, and on PS3 and Xbox 360, it is a bit more cumbersome than with the Chromecast device, as you need to launch the Netflix or YouTube app first, but on newer Smart TVs you can cast at all times. Just open your Netflix or YouTube app on your iOS/Android tablet or smartphone, and click on the Chromecast icon (that appears automatically). You can also cast from a PC/Mac via the Chrome browser, but only from YouTube.com, not Netflix.com, right now.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/castps3-2l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/castps3-2.jpg" alt="YouTube on PS3" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Push YouTube from your mobile to your PS3</i></p><br />In our <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/review.php?subaction=showfull&id=1376286082><b>Chromecast review</b></a> we argued that Chromecast is based on the <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/focus.php?subaction=showfull&id=1359033099><b>DIAL initiative</b></a> started by Netflix and YouTube, which has later been confirmed. Google has also added some layers on top of DIAL. The goal with DIAL is to eventually let users turn on their TVs directly from the Netflix or YouTube apps on handheld devices.<br /><br />The most significant feature that is missing with the built-in “Chromecast” implementations is the ability to cast a browser tab from Chrome onto the TV screen, but if you are only interested in "casting" YouTube and Netflix (and potential new apps) you might already have that functionality in one of your existing devices.
