Stupid Chromecast Tricks: Google Play Music

Casting Google Play Music to the Chromecast
One of the neat things about the Chromecast is it's just so damn easy to use. So easy you overlook completely obvious things. Thing like:

You can pick any tab you want and just shoot it to your TV screen.
Any tab. 

So today I'm going to troll Cnet most of the day. It's a rich activity full of learning and lulz. But I want my music. No secret I love Google Play Music....

No problem!

Get my Google Music up in a tab on my Chromebook Pixel
(note: will work fine on lesser Windows and OSX based hardware)

Cast that tab to my TV

Change tabs to whatever else I'm doing.

Like doing a Blog post or whatever
Music just keeps playing in the tab
I get it through my awesome TV speakers

: )

If you haven't gotten a Chromecast yet, you really should. It's cheap as sin, and awesome stuff.
