The past few months has seen Microsoft create and update a lot of its apps for other platforms, adding a lot of features and capabilities that would make people use it even more than their own, native apps.

Google Slides updated, view notes and lists of Chromecasts

Google has made another update to the Slides app. It's one offshoot of the Chromecast idea that has brought casting more mainstream and more useful. The Chromecast isn't just a single dongle that lets you stream images and videos to a TV display. It's now being used when giving important presentations at work or in school. Mirroring is one easy way to "cast" but a dedicated app like the Slides will make the job easier and more convenient.
