Google launched Photowall for Chromecast today. This is a simple app which allows you to share pictures from your phone or Google+ onto your Chromecast enabled device such as TV. There are several unique ways of doing this. You can share an album where it can automatically create a slideshow or a youtube video. Or you can take pictures and cast it directly to the TV as you take them. Pretty nifty!
