You were all set to wow the boardroom with that new presentation you worked on over the weekend, but before you walked out the door to head to the office, you received a call telling you that the conference room’s projector was on the fritz. What do you do now? Pull that Chromecast out of your TV, that’s what! Google has quietly updated its desktop version of Drive, giving it the ability to stream presentations to its mighty media dongle.

To cast a presentation: make sure you have the Google Cast plugin installed, click Drive’s present button and select the option to present from another device. If everything is set up correctly, your Chromecast should be available as an option. As of now this feature is only limited to the desktop version of Drive, but hopefully Google will spread some love to its mobile apps in the days ahead.

  1. Wouldn’t this be ineffective since most enterprise connections do not allow PnP (I think) communications.
