Now that Google has began shipping their HDMI media streaming dongle, the ChromeCast, to more countries it is no surprise that they would now start trying to bring more applications to the market. The newest of these ChromeCast enabled applications is called Photowall and is only available on iPhones, iPods, and iPads.
Photowall is an application that allows users to push their photos to their TV and create a collage with them on-screen. Inside the application users can add captions or even draw on the photos. As long as you have this application installed on your device, you can collaborate with others and share photos for everyone to see and enjoy. Finally, when you’re done displaying pictures on your display, the application can automatically create a YouTube video that replays all of the shared photos so that you can share it for even more people to see on the internet.
I see this application working great with the Google Plus Party Mode where users can automatically share photos to a Google Plus event page when they have marked the invite that they were attending the said event. If Google can make it so these photos automatically got published to the TV, it would make the whole experience a lot better.
There has been no official work yet on when/if Google will release Photowall on Android but it seems that Apple devices are having a hard time signing into their Google accounts through the application so it might have been published prematurely. We will keep you updated!
UPDATE: It looks like Google has followed through with their promise and the Photowall app has hit the Play Store. Link added below.
