The biggest pitfall of Chromcast, the HDMI streaming Dongle from Google, was its inability to steam local content from a mobile device. Atleast in India, its functionality was somewhat hindered and was limited to Youtube only as other apps like Netflix, pendora , etc. natively do not work in India. But this week Google announced a few apps which were updated to support Chromecast, One such app is called Avia , is a blessing in disguise.
