We offer support for desktop Chrome as a receiver through our Cast for EDU
Chrome extension [3].  It uses Google cloud services for discovery instead
of the LAN.

Note we recently completed a backend migration and Presentation API support
may not be fully functional in the current release of Cast for EDU.  A
quick test with photowall didn't work for me.  We'll work on bringing it
back though.  I filed this bug so you can track progress:
