Google Fiber TV boxes now support Google Cast

Subscribers to the Google Fiber TV and Internet service in the U.S. will soon be able to connect their smartphones and tablets to their TV boxes with Google Cast support.

Google says:

Casting is easy. Just connect your compatible mobile device or laptop to your Fiber Wi-Fi, then tap the Cast button from the apps you already know and love to send what you're viewing to your TV. And since Fiber TV comes with Google Cast technology built-in, no additional equipment or setup is needed.

Google Fiber is currently available in Kansas City, Austin, Texas and Provo, Utah, with plans to expand it to a number of other U.S. cities.

  • I don't like hearing about this service bc its only available in one housing project in Kansas city Posted via the Android Central App
  • you mean that literally? or like hyperbole? in all seriousness
  • Google Fiber is available in a vast majority of the KC-metro area.
  • It's hyperbole.
  • It is all over the KC Metro area.
  • I found it important.
  • Has AC done a feature that shows us what Google Fiber is actually like to live with? It would hurt, but I'd like to see how some people live with better TV and Internet at home.
  • I have it in KC and was happy to get rid of TWC to get it. TV features are getting better but when I first got it, TWC had more features from their TV boxes/apps (streaming from app, set recordings remotely, etc). Internet is fantastic and rarely have issues with downloads or buffering. Although you still run into issues sometimes but the cause is the servers you are pulling from can't produce as fast as your internet so it isn't client-side. It is great for online gaming and download install files or apps but if you play multiplayer, you still run into lag if the game is running P2P connections.
  • I have 100/100 FiOS, so I imagine Google Fiber is pretty badass considering my connection is fast enough to stream 20 1080p movies from Netflix simultaneously, if they allowed such a thing. I know that I only have to wait maybe 5 seconds for a 4K movie to start streaming on Netflix. Now, multiply that by 10, it should give you an idea.
  • They are considering my area as one of the next expansions. After verizon sold their FiOS to Frontier here in Florida, it can't happen soon enough. Especially after working with a client in KC and saw speeds around 850 up and down. Posted via the Android Central App
