Google’s Chromecast turns one: 400M casts to date and free All Access trial for owners

Exactly 12 months ago, Google unveiled its Chromecast streaming dongle for the first time. To celebrate its first anniversary, Google is offering all Chromecast owners a 90-day free trial for Google Play Music All Access, its premium music streaming service.

The offer is available now in the US and can be redeemed up until September 30, 2014. To grab the free subscription, you’ll need to head here; it’s unclear whether this offer stretches to other territories, however.

It’s not sharing any sales numbers for the device, but that’s hardly suprising given its secrecy around Nexus sales.
