We’re just days away from Christmas and among the most popular gifts nestled under trees will be Google’s Chromecast. The little dongle does it all. Everything that a pricey media player can do is possible with Google’s $35 darling. Gaming is even in Chromecast’s wheelhouse. And Google wants everyone with a Chromecast (as well as soon-to-be owners) to know that a few more games are now Chromecast-enabled for you to play solo and alongside friends and family during the holidays.
There’s nothing quite like playing Angry Birds on your television while staying warm next to the fireplace.
Here are the games that, according to Google, showcase the excellent multi-screen capabilities of Chromecast:
- Angry Birds Friends
- Driver Speedboat Paradise
- Monopoly Here & Now
- Yahtzee Blitz
- The Game of Life
- Scrabble Blitz 2.0
Specifically noted by Google is the addition of Monopoly Here & Now. Four people can simultaneously play the game on one television, each using their own device as the controller.
Check out the entire selection of games that are Chromecast-enabled on the official site. That’s where you’ll see just how serious Google is taking gaming on a device that costs less than $40.
