Chromecast SDK finally available for all developers

Chromecast Belkin Miracast AA-1

At $35, the Chromecast is without a doubt the one of the most affordable media streaming players on the market today. On the downside, the device has also been limited to only a handful of supported apps up until now. The good news is that all of this is about to change for the better, as the Chromecast SDK is now open to all developers.

So what does this change mean for Chromecast users? In short, it means that any developer can now bake Chromecast support right into your favorite apps. It also means that the number of apps that support Chromecast could be making a pretty massive jump upwards in the days and weeks to come.

Bottom-line, the release of the SDK will allow the Chromecast to reach its true potential and means that an already great media streaming device is about to be transformed into something epic.

For developers interested in learning more about the SDK and what’s involved to get started with it, be sure to head over to the Google Developers Blog.

    Chromecast is now super awesome. I have one and am happy. All I need now is display mirroring.

    So Amazon makes the devices available cheaply (and has sold tens of thousands of them), so perhaps they’ll finally support the device with instant video streaming now that a proper SDK is out?
