Chromecast as WiFi Extender

Our internet provider brought us a new modem / router today, which ended up with me re-configuring our home network. While doing so, I noticed that our Chromecast was showing up as a wireless network in my phones list of wireless networks. This got me thinking, can the ChromeCast somehow be used as a wireless range extender, does Google have plans to add such useful functionality to the ChromeCast? It appears to already have the wireless hardware.
