chromecast front aa

Chromecast seems to be a huge hit. This little device has an insane amount of potential. There’s just one thing lacking: official apps. Even if an official app isn’t available yet, you can cast tabs from your desktop or laptop, which works quite well if your computer can support it. While poking around some of the Chromecast configuration files, the guys over at GTVHacker found something quite interesting. It seems that a lot of additional apps or receivers are being tested at this time. During this past week’s announcement, Google told us that Pandora and others were coming sometime down the road for Chromecast. Here’s a look at what might be coming soon.

  • Pandora
  • HBO Go
  • Washtington Post
  • AOL ON
  • Qello
  • Revision 3
  • Songza
  • Tic Tac Toe (most likely used just for testing purposes)

Each of these applications can be viewed right now, in their testing phase on the web. However, they don’t do anything besides showing splash pages at this time and some of them don’t even load.

If Google can get these applications out fast, Chromecast’s popularity and usefulness is going to skyrocket. Keep your fingers crossed!

What other apps would you like to see on Chromecast? Let us know.
