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.
The latest update for the pro version of TuneIn Radio has landed in the Play Store. This time around the update includes a few fixes, some smaller tweaks and adjustments, as well as a new option for those looking to record audio. TuneIn Radio Pro now allows users to record audio directly to a memory card.
After just revealing its jack-of-all-trades Multi-Console box last month, Xtreamer is once again outing a new Android-powered device designed to connect to your TV. This time, however, the Xtreamer SideWinder4 is more interested in a focused watching experience than playing games.
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."
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.
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.
There are countless music streaming hubs and devices available today, but none are as beautiful, or at least curious looking, as Beep. Invading Sonos' home turf, this device from a team of Google ex-employees offers audio lovers not just a single knob to control their music, but a way to spread it around the house as well.
NBC Universal has recently updated the app that will allow you to stay current with the 2014 Sochi Olympic Winter Games -- even if you are not able to be sitting in front of your television. The app is called NBC Olympics Highlights and currently available by way of the Google Play Store. The app is available for free, but unfortunately does have some drawbacks.
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.
Android gaming, and consequently Android consoles, is on the rise, we said. But it seems that there are some who are trying to squeeze out all that they can from an Android device and be almost everything to everybody. One such example is the Xtreamer Multi-Console which is a gaming console, media hub, and mini PC all rolled into one convenient box.
