Chromecast Update - Plex, Realplayer, Pandora & More! [Video]
If you’re in a hurry, you can check out the video above!
When the Chromecast was launched in July, it was almost unanimously agreed to be a bargain at just $35. However, it was also noted that it was fairly limited, with support limited to a few Google apps like Youtube, Google Play Music and the Chrome browser, as well as Netflix.
Luckily, Google has been working hard with app developers to allow Chromecast owners to stream more of their content to their TVs and we’ve gone hands on to take a look at these new Chromecast-supported apps, as well as a few new wallpapers added in the recent Chromecast update.
We went hands on with the Pandora app, as well as Vevo, Plex, Revision 3, Realplayer Cloud and Viki, to demonstrate all of the powerful apps and features that have been added to the Chromecast. One thing to note, is that if you’d like to stream content from these newly supported apps, make sure you’ve got the apps all updated, to ensure that you’ve got the version that actually supports Chromecast streaming.
