If you have the urge to relive gaming history's classic moments on a bigger screen, then look no further. GamingCast will let you play old-school games like Pong and a more recent Snake on your TV thanks to the magic of Chromecast.
It seems that Google's Sundar Pichai isn't done making big revelations at SxSW today. Just after pre-announcing a wearable device SDK coming in two weeks, the Google exec has now disclosed that the company was able to sell millions of its immensely popular Chromecast dongle.
After repeatedly teasing the functionality, and probably receiving endless questions, Koush, or Koushik Dutta, has finally announced a beta version of his Mirror for Android app. The highlight of this release is, of course, the ability to mirror a user's Android device to a TV via Chromecast.
Chromecast, or the new Roku streaming stick? with the new Roku stick coming down in price to $50, you can now enjoy all that Roku’s platform has to offer without a set-top box. On the other hand, Chromecast offers a lot of unique twists that make it incredibly useful. Tough choice.
Chrome Beta saw an update yesterday, which is usually not a big deal. Bug fixes and other minor tweaks are normal, but this one added something special. This time, one enterprising sleuth found a neat little addition. It seems we’ll have the ability to stream to our Chromecast right from our mobile browser!
Vudu, the media streaming service owned by WalMart, is being updated to support Chromecast. This comes a few weeks after Google released the SDK for Chromecast, which many assumed would create a flood of apps supporting the utility. We only hope Vudu is the first.
Koushik Dutta has just pushed an update to his AllCast streaming app and this one's a doozy. Not only does it now sport a new user interface design, the app has also gained the ability to stream photos from the newly released Muzei live wallpaper app.
Plex has just announced an update to its media player system that will give users something to enjoy this weekend. While there are new features across the board, bulk of the update revolves around enhancements to its Chromecast support.
Koush took to his Google+ page last week offering a meme-style image teasing Android to Chromecast mirroring. Given what we have seen from Koush in the past, there really wasn't much reason to think he couldn't, or wasn't working on such functionality. But at the same time, all he was offering was that meme-style image asking "what if I told you…I could mirror Android to Chromecast."
Similar to what we have been seeing from Google with other holidays, there is a bit for those looking to celebrate Valentine's Day. To be specific, it seems Google has offered two goodies. One of which deals with Play Music and the Chromecast, and the other is coming as another Auto Awesome image tweak.
