    I don't think there has been an eta provided. But I do agree, it's going to make a lot of people happy.

    The ultrasonic sound will be used to identify devices near the chrome cast but not on the same wifi network. It's basically designed so you don't have to give out your wifi password to everyone who wants to use your chromecast, the chromecast is still streaming over wifi.

    Reading the article it sounds is doing away with wifi.
    Forget Wi-Fi for your*Chromecastconnectivity needs, as*Google*has found a more interesting way to pair the dongle with nearby devices for streaming purposes,*GigaOm*reports. The Chromecast team has figured out how to use inaudible ultrasonic sounds to pair the entertainment device with supported smartphones and tablets.

    The way I'm reading it is it omits a sound through your TV speaker. When your device picks it up a code appears on the TV that you type in to connect.

    Exactly, the tone emitted is inaudible to humans but is still able to be "heard" by an android phone. The tone emitted is not going to travel far thus requiring your device to be in close proximity with the chromecast, this will prevent your neighbours from having access to your chromecast.

    Is this similar to that dog whistler ringtone I used to have when I was growing up?

    You know how the frequency is way up there so "young" people can hear it but "old" people can't. Is it one of those things? Because different frequencies sound different on different speakers.

    Imagine the complaints you'll hear from dog owners....

    I mean, I just imagine too much real life errors that prevent this from happening flawlessly.
