I hadn't heard of this service until now. Doesn't seem like a bad idea. I would think that with the Chromecast ability, it would have been more popular. I probably would have used this when at work. My co-workers and I usually have Pandora or YouTube videos playing on a TV in the background (via Chromecast) while at work.
