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.
On the heels of Google releasing Google Play Services 4.2, the Dayframe developers have also released version 2.1 of the photo frame and slideshow app. This release has one and only one new feature: the return of the ability to stream photos to Chromecast.
Google has just announced the release of the latest version Google Play services, giving Android developers more tools in their arsenal. While the release is, of course, intended mostly for programmers, several new features will be of interest to end users as well.
Google released the Chromecast SDK a short while back and that prompted a few app updates. One of those apps was AllCast, which comes courtesy of Koushik Dutta. The AllCast update was sort of expected, given we had already seen that functionality added, then removed in the past. But perhaps a bit more interesting, a new teaser is mentioning the possibility of being able to mirror Android on a Chromecast.
We've seen a fair bit in terms of the Chromecast this week. Google released the long-awaited SDK earlier in the week and that prompted some updates. But while that release has brought a new potential for app updates adding Chromecast support, we do have to remember the Chromecast isn't widely available as a device just yet.
Dayframe, now at version 2.0, is just one of those apps that has taken advantage of the newly released Cast SDK. Unfortunately, it seems that it might have gotten too excited and is now being asked to pull out Chromecast support temporarily.
As Google rolls out their Chromecast SDK, we are expecting a slew of apps to jump on board. If Twitter is any indication, both Rdio and Beats are working with Google to have their services Chromecast-able. Others are still on the fence — or noncommittal at best — about Chromecast.
Koush had some ups and downs when it came to Chromecast support with the AllCast app. But as Google released the Cast SDK yesterday, that meant developers were free to begin adding Chromecast support to their apps. That said, Koush did some updating and as a result -- AllCast with Chromecast support has arrived in the Play Store.
