Google Is Aiming at Apple with an Open Airplay Alternative
Apple's AirPlay functionality has been very popular with users of Apple devices and compatible products. Google, who significantly favors open software and architecture, is set to aim directly at Apple with an open AirPlay alternative. Google is reportedly
working on an alternative, and hopes to bring a number of device and software manufacturers on board with its plan. The goal is to provide the industry with open technology to exchange data with second screens and TV connected devices.
This could mean a future where devices from different manufacturers are able to wirelessly stream video and audio to your TV or other device within the home. Apple's AirPlay service only works with Apple products and Apple approved accessories.

The service allows users to open videos on their Android smartphones and then have compatible TVs play the content back automatically. There is no indication of when the Google tech might come to market.

A group of young 20-somethings stand in a Soho-like loft space in a tech incubator in South Tel Aviv, presenting the future of traffic to a panel of the Start Up Nation’s leading lights. The CTO of PayPal Israel is there (they are sponsoring the event), as is a representative of the Prime Minister’s Office, and so are several experts on the emerging field of smart cities.
