The new voice search could be interesting, but I am wondering when the ability to "Cast a Tab" from my iOS device to my Chromecast will be available?

I can do it in a standard browser with the extension, but the device would be a great addition.

It would be even more than a great addition: it's needed.
Come on, if I have to get my computer to show something on the net to everyone, we'd better watch the computer. So no point having the chromecast plugged to the TV!
