Add Chromecast Support

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).

Brilliant idea, for offices too its a practical alternative for business to look at big screen on a skype conversation reitheir then laptops.

many laptop to handle both presentation and visual are a big prob.

also skype close your camera if you went out of it so we can use camera+skype parallely with other stuff :)

Yes, this is strange that Skype is taking so much time to add this functionality. Please do it soon...
