Chromecast, TV remote control can now function together

Getting a Chromecast was perhaps the best geeky decision I made recently. I wasn't an early adopter but I still find it useful especially whenever I need a "babysitter". What I didn't like though was the fact that you couldn't use your TV's remote control with it. Sure, using your smartphone or tablet as control is pretty cool but sometimes you just want your trusty old remote control to function as it should. Good thing Google updated the streaming stick to allow pause and resume playback Chromecast videos with any TV remote control.

Leak: VLC update will (finally) have Chromecast support

It's been a long-time coming (well, 7 months, but in tech world that's forever) but it looks like your favorite jack-of-all-trades video player will finally be able to support Google's streaming dongle. If the changelog in the Git repo is to be believed, the next update to VLC will finally feature support for Chromecast, something that a lot of people are excited about, even though this was something "promised" (well, sort of) June of last year.

Nexus 9, Chromecast, Moto 360 now available in more countries

It was only last week that the Nexus 9 was released in sand color and the LTE version was made available by T-Mobile last December after being delayed for some time. All good news and more as Google is finally bringing the Android tablet in Taiwan and New Zealand. That's two different countries so more people will be happy to learn that the Nexus 9 is now available in their countries. Those people in these regions can easily visit the Play Store and order the Nexus 9, as well as, the Chromecast.

Google TV dead, mothership to push Android TV, Chromecast

When Google TV came out, it was the new kid on the block and it was immediately liked for being the “different one”. Sadly, the ecosystem for the device – the app development, the OEM support, the hardware maturity – stagnated, especially when Chromecast came out and immediately proved the wireless streaming was the way to go. And so it comes as no surprise that Google has decided to pull the plug on Google TV development.

Chromecast app updated with Guest Mode and new Material Design

Chromecast has proven to be a very useful streaming device. If you have it at home, I'm pretty sure you've been enjoying casting funny babies and cat videos. And when you have guests over, everyone just wants to get on it and share new discoveries on YouTube. Now, Google made it easier for your guests to cast without having to connect to WiFi at first. The guest mode allows any Android device user in the same room to cast to the host's TV easily.

Mozilla Firefox for Android updated to version 34 with Chromecast mirroring support

The Mozilla Firefox browser app for Android received a big-ish update recently, pushing it to version 34. But more than that, the update does brings a number of new features to the browser. We are mildly surprised though, that the move to make Yahoo the browser’s primary search engine has not been cascaded to the Android app yet, as that deal between Mozilla and Yahoo was done two weeks ago.

Tunein Radio gets Chromecast support, Material Design update

While listening to terrestrial radio may already be a thing of the past (or a hipster retro hobby), radio itself has reinvented itself into podcasts, video podcasts that is still easily consumable by customers and subscribers. One such app that gives you access to these is Tunein radio and the latest update to it brings a sort of new design, as well as Chromecast support.
