Photowall launches, Google’s photo sharing app for Chromecast

Google recently launched Photowall, a simple, free photo-sharing app meant for Chromecast devices. It can be used to directly cast photos on a TV.

The app is labeled as “an experiment”, and it couldn’t have come at a better time – just earlier this month, Google opened their Chromecast sales worldwide, with devices soon being spotted in Germany and in the UK. With the influx of new users looking for apps to use on their own Chromecasts, Photowall steps in to fill in the gap.

What the app actually does is allow you to share photos and videos from an Android-powered phone or tablet, and onto a Chromecast-powered TV. The photos are sent to the TV instantaneously, and they can be switched with others just as fast. There is also the option of creating a Youtube video from the shots you have shared to Chromecast. Oh, and by the way – we focused on the Android version, but Photowall is also available on iOS.

Even though this is probably just Google’s way of communicating with developers, and making them see possible uses for ChromecastPhotowall is actually surprisingly useful – remember the huddle everybody makes whenever someone wants to share a photo? This can all be avoided if there is a TV around – and there usually is. Now everybody can just sit back and watch on thirty inches what they saw on just four.
