Thoughtless Thursday #10: American Eskimo on The Photowall


Thoughtless Thursday


"Don't think, just link!"

I put together my first Photowall today! Google just recently announced the Chromecast Photowall experiment, and my sapiens were excited to try it out. You'll need:

1x Photowall app for Android or iOS
1x HDTV
Any number of phones/computers/tablets (with Google+ accounts)

Once you launch the app from your mobile device, it will want you to connect to your Chromecast. After that, it shows a G+ sign-in button which launches the browser and asks you to sign in. Once that is completed (make sure to check off the 'create video' after the wall closes if you want Google to create your video and upload it to YouTube), you should see a blank slate on your TV waiting for you to share pictures.

On the TV, it'll also present you with a website (g.co/photowall) and a unique code. While it's mainly going to be used to share around the household, I'm going to open mine up to my readers! The code STELJ  HAELH will only be available todayfor a few hours (7PM PDT - 10PM PDT on 3/26/2014) as I do not want to leave my TV on forever! Let's call this a Ruckus Experiment of a Chrome Experiment! I'll upload the video shortly afterwards.

UPDATE: New Photowall. Go to https://chrome.com/photowall/m/#home with code HAELH. I'll leave this one up for the entirety of Thoughtless Thursday!

Woof,

Ruckus the Eskie

  10. You always look so clean, Ruckus. Jan has fits over Sam's once white coat since all the grass died in our pen. Dirt is bad enough but this red clay doesn't wash out easily.
