Google Chromecast Will Enable Mobile Devices to Stream Games to TVs

The new support for gaming apps could boost Chromecast's popularity even further. Released in July 2013, Google's $35 to $40 Chromecast is currently only second behind Roku in terms of market share in the streaming media segment.

Market numbers released by Parks Associates in December showed Roku holding a 29 percent share of streaming media sales, followed by Google Chromecast with 20 percent.

In the less than two years that the device has been in the market, Chromecast has supplanted Apple TV for second place, according to Parks Associates. Google itself claims it has sold about 17 million of the devices since launch. It claims that active Chromecast users currently consume about 66 percent more Web content daily, compared to when the device was first launched.
