Second Screen WG / Webscreens CG,

I am pleased to announce that Chrome has launched support for Google Cast
via the Presentation API for all Chrome desktop users on Chrome 52
(Windows, Mac, Linux and ChromeOS).

https://chrome.googleblog.com/2016/08/google-cast-is-now-built-in-to-chrome.html

This launch also adds support for Google Hangouts [1] and Cast for
Education [2] as presentation screens for signed-in Chrome users.
However, these are not yet integrated with the Presentation API; they can
be used for tab and desktop sharing (mirroring of content).

Thanks,
