Can Google beat out AirPlay with Android’s streaming alternative?
AirPlay is a fantastic bundle of technology that Apple has assembled and shipped for years. Audio, video, and even a live feed of your screen can be sent wirelessly to your AppleTV using either OS X or iOS. It’s simple, and works consistently – provided you have a strong network connection.
Thanks to this technology, your AppleTV becomes a game console, jukebox, and web browser with a simple tap. Android has made huge strides in usability and out-of-the-box features in the past year or so, but this is still something that it’s lacking.
