[APK] YouTube Update to 5.6 Now Lets You Cast Live Video to Your Chromecast

Earlier today, we talked about how Google brought two new apps to the Google Play Store. As welcome of an addition as these apps were, we were perhaps a bit too hasty in suggesting that today was not quite another Google Update Wednesday. Now, Google has issued a rather significant update to its YouTube app from version 5.5 to 5.6.

So what’s new in version 5.6.31? Google Chromecast owners are now given the option to cast live videos directly from the Android app. Some of you may recall that this feature was recently added to the desktop website. But now with version 5.6, it’s available via mobile as well. There don’t the seem to be any other changes in 5.6 that we can see at this time, and Google has not yet updated “What’s New” section of the Play Store listing, but it is entirely possible that there are a few other, minor tweaks that made their way into 5.6

You can head over to the Google Play Store listing to get started. But since this update is rolling out in stages, those looking to get in on the update a bit early by way of sideloading should head over to our DevHost mirror.
