I have talked about this little device before, but things are looking even better nowaday for the Chromecast. Some big things have happened recently which make the outlook of this device to be very good.The biggest hurdle for the Chromecast has actually been from Google. Google has been keeping the device pretty well locked down to what it wants. This meant that for an app to get chromecast support, Google would have to approve it. This all changed recently now that Google has opened up the API. What does this mean? Well it means that anyone can write an app that allows you to send media straight from your phone to your tv. Developers have already taken advantage of this on android and there are apps that let you stream videos and pictures directly from your phone to your tv. Google has also released a new beta version of the chrome extension that allows you to share stuff from your computer to your tv, so we will be watching for some new incredible features to come soon. For now, I suggest you purchase one if you don’t have one already. They are a steal at $30 from amazon and are pretty nice to have around. If you have any questions about it feel free to comment below.
