Google Update: G+ Chromecast support, minor tweaks

Ahead of Google’s normal update Wednesday, APKs of the updates to their first party apps have begun rolling in. Google+ has a pretty substantial update enabling Chromecast support while other Google products like YouTube, Chrome Beta and Google Search have gone through minor enhancements. They are not enough to warrant major announcements probably, but of course we still need to be aware of them.

MirrorEnabler mirrors any device screen to Chromecast

There has been a lot of mixed reaction on Google’s Chromecast streaming stick, which allows certain Chrome and mobile apps to stream video to a TV screen – mainly because it is so selective in which apps and devices are able to use it. But Mozilla, the longtime browser rival of Google, may be working on a streaming device project as well, or at least allowing the use of Firefox OS, as seen in a tweet of a prototype device.
