Google planning for Chromecast to support sharing from Google Drive

A German G+ user, Daniel Lohse, accidentally stumbled upon an interesting feature when playing around with his Chrome browser. It appears that Google is testing the ability to directly cast documents in Google Drive to your Chromecast. This will allow you to launch directly from Google Drive onto a large TV screen or even a projector without the annoying Windows dual screen setup which never seems to work. This is great news for business road warriors or teachers who want a easy way of popping out presentations. Imagine loading a ppt onto Google drive then taking out your Nexus 5 and launching the presentation. So simple!
