It is always rewarding to see things that have been discussed extensively in standards context to ship in products. Congrats to folks who made this happen!

> 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,
