At Google I/O they talks about a new feature that would be coming to Chromecast that would let you choose the images that appeared on your TV when on the idle Chromecast screen. Today is that day. Google has announced the official roll out of the feature that is called “Backdrop.”

With a new backdrop option, you can customize your TV screen with:

  • Your favorite photo albums from Google+
  • Amazing artwork from galleries and museums around the world via the Google Cultural Institute
  • News and lifestyle images from The New York Times, The Guardian, Saveur and more (U.S. only)
  • Satellite imagery of some of the hardest-to-reach places on Earth from Google Maps
  • and even more beautiful photos from the Google+ community

If you see an image that you want to know more about simply open the Google search app and ask Google “What’s on my Chromecast?” to get details.
