Google adds a handful of family-friendly games to the Chromecast for the holidays
Looking for something fun to do with your family this holiday season? Good news – Google has just announced a handful of family-friendly games have gained Chromecast support, which should help liven up your get-togethers. Most notably, Rovio’s Angry Birds Friends, Risk, Monopoly Here & Now, Yahtzee Blitz, The Game of Life and Scrabble Blitz 2.0 have been added to the list of Chromecast-enabled games. These titles should definitely help bring the family together. Additionally, Ubisoft’s Driver Speedboat Paradise has also gained Chromecast support.
These titles are made better by utilizing the split-screen functionality Google introduce awhile back. For instance, if you’re playing one of the Hasbro board games listed above, you’ll be able to see your cards on your phone while the moves are displayed on the big screen.
Don’t have a Chromecast? Here’s another bit of good news. Google just recently announced a new promotion that would get you $20 in Google Play credit when you buy a Chromecast through January 2nd. If you’re interested in saving even more, you can buy two Chromecast devices (including Chromecast Audio) and get them for only $55, which is a $15 discount.
