10 New Apps Now Updated with Chromecast Support
Google today finally provided the app support which the Chromecast was missing on from the get go. Initially Chromecast Supported only Apps like Youtube, Netflix ,and Pandora. Later this month the support was extended to HBO GO , but yesterday out of the Blue Google came out with a announcement of extending the support to 10 new apps including VEVO, RED BULL TV, SONGZA(a service similar to Spotify) , Plex, VIKI, Real Media player Cloud, Avia and more. Given that most of these apps do not work in India but there is a hidden incentive here. Apps like Plex, Avia can help cast local content directly from your Android or iOS device to a bigger screen.
With this update the gadget has become worth it’s $35 price tag and we have no problems recommending it to anyone looking for a cheaper streaming alternative to an Apple TV. But if you have extra cash Apple TV provides better integration ,Synchronization and Feature set for iDevices. Ofcourse if you are on the Android Ecosystem this is the sole best option available.
