Chromecast code leak suggests weather forecasts, extra features on homescreen coming soon
Google could add more functionality to the Chromecast's homescreen in the future, according to code unearthed by a user on Reddit. The code displays the current weather and a one-day forecast for its location, reports GigaOM, with links in the code pointing toward various weather-related icons. It is suggested the code could also be used to show other topics, such as Google Now notifications, as well as using personal photographs instead of the current image roster shown when the device is idling.
