The first thing you'll notice about the new Google Chromecast is its form. But more interesting by far is its function. The new Chromecast app solves the biggest issue with the first iteration of Google's streaming pendant (née stick): finding stuff to watch. The app pulls in information from compatible services like Netflix and Hulu and will let you search for and stream shows and movies without having to jump in and out of 17 apps. It's a simple idea, but it transforms the Chromecast from a standard "casting" device into a legitimate competitor for more "functional" set-top boxes.
