Whether it be on the desktop or mobile, Chrome's beta browser is a handy way to preview features before they hit the mainstream crowd. In the most recent release for Android, there's now the ability for sites to send presentations to Chromecast devices -- something developers can implement using Google's corresponding API and SDK.

Also new in Chrome 48 beta, devs have the option to add custom buttons to push notifications from their website, which would let users easily complete tasks on a smartphone or tablet. Naturally, Google says developers should take advantage of this alerts tool, highlighting that Chrome is serving over 350 million push notifications per day.
