Add Chromecast Support

Status: Comments Requested

Chromecast has just been opened up to allow all developers to add in Chromecast functionality to their products. I would love to be able to put someone I am Skyping on my TV, even if the webcam from my computer is still being used. This would allow users to Skpe a friend while still having full use of their computer (i.e. they could type a paper while still being able to really see the person they are talking with, not just having them in a tiny box). Please update your program and/or your phone app to have this functionality (right now Hangouts offers the ability to do so, but have been waiting to see if this feature will be added to Skype before just switching over).

I think that would be amazing if you can see the person you are taliking with on a big HD screen while you are close to the microphone of your tablet (Ipad, surface,......). I would really recommend to add this extension on the skype software speccially for tablets and smart phones.
