Sonifi Solutions launches SoniCast powered by Chromecast to enhance the hotel room experience for guests. Chromecast is a media streaming device that plugs into the HDMI port of a TV that allows you to cast your favorite movies, TV shows, music and more from your mobile device to the TV.

Whether binge watching TV series, catching up on movies or enjoying user-generated content, SoniCast delivers the same experience guests enjoy at home from 1000+ Cast-enabled apps in the comfort of their hotel room. SoniCast’s Chromecast integration provides an incredible user experience.

"The mobile-centric Chromecast interaction model, combined with thousands of shows, movies and songs that people can enjoy from Cast-enabled apps, makes this an ideal match for the needs of today's hotel guests,” said Suveer Kothari, director of business development at Google.
