The new HBO Now streaming service just launched last week on Android, giving users the ability to stream Game of Thrones, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, Veep, and other great shows on the network to their mobile devices for a low monthly fee. We knew that the app would gain Chromecast support soon, and that day has finally come. The update is now rolling out in the Google Play Store, so if you’re a subscriber to the service, you’ll want to head to the Play Store to grab the latest version.

The HBO Now update also brings some performance tweaks and push notifications to the app, which will allow users to get show recommendations and reminders.

HBO Now isn’t the only major service to gain Chromecast support, though. Google has just announced that Watch Food NetworkWatch Travel Channel and Pokémon TV are all gaining support for the streaming stick, as well as a few apps and games including Pixlr, Catch Phrase Blitz, FitFlap and Tricky Titans.
