Now you can play Angry Birds Friends and more on your Chromecast

Google announced it will be adding a host of new games to its Chromecast App Store, including Angry Birds Friends.

The latest version of the streaming device allows you to play games on your TV using the smartphone/tablet app and now new titles, made specifically for the Chromecast, are set to launch.

Games include Driver Speedboat Paradise, and Hasbro board games including Monopoly Here & Now, The Game of Life, and Risk.

You will be able to use multiple screens to play the new titles – perfect for family fun on Christmas day.

The board games allow individual players to view their cards or tiles on their own devices while the board is displayed on the TV.

The games will arrive on the Chromecast App Store this week, though at the time of writing they are not appearing in the UK version of the store.

Google launched an updated version of its Chromecast TV streaming device in September alongside a new audio version.
