(NDTV Gadgets) – Google’s Chromecast is a pretty cool gadget and at Google I/O 2015, it was revealed that over 17 million Chromecasts have been sold so far. The little dongle also got a set of new APIs that could make it even better – the Chromecast now supports more second screen functionality, as well as autoplay, queuing, and multiplayer game features.

For example, if you’re streaming any content to your Chromecast, once that video ends, it will be able to launch the next video without any break. The second video can be buffered while the first one is playing, but the user can also edit the queue, re-ordering and removing items if they choose. Of course, the content provider has to support this as well, and reportedly NBA Game Time and Red Bull TV have already implemented the API.

The Chromecast gained support for multiplayer games last year, and Google’s new Game Manager API will make it easier to create multiplayer experiences.
