Last year Google has launched its new media streaming device, the Google Chromecast which is recently launched in India exclusively on Snapdeal at Rs. 2,999 however its already available on eBay at lower price. One of the much requested and awaited features of Chromecast was guest mode, as of now you need to share your WiFi password with your friend if they want to stream contents from their devices to your TV.
Now Google has now added Guest Mode in Chromecast which allows your friends to stream contents without getting your WiFi password, to setup Guest Mode, launch Chromecast app on your Android device and select “Devices” from the navigation drawer. Choose your Chromecast device, tap the “Guest mode” setting and then turn the slider to “on.”
This is a rolling out update and make sure you have latest version of Chromecast app on your Android device. Any device in the room can “cast” content from any Chromecast-supported app, at this time this feature is only available on Android 4.3 or above devices.
