[APK] Chromecast Can Now Mirror Your Android Device’s Screen

Ever since the Google Chromecast was released a little under a year ago, it's had a relatively interesting life. On one hand, Google's diminutive $35 media streamer was always an excellent budget friendly media streamer for those happy living in the cloud.

Enjoy Spotify on Your Chromecast with Spoticast

A few years ago, not many people expected that music would be streamed from the Internet legally. Then came services like Spotify, which allow users to stream music on various devices.

Earlier today, the Chromecast started receiving an OTA update to build...

Google Chromecast SDK Now Available to Developers, More Supported Apps to Come!

The $35 Google Chromecast has had a bit of a chequered history in its relatively short six-month lifespan. While the device offered streaming video and audio capabilities previously seen only in far more costly accessories, the list of officially supported services has always been quite sparse. At first this looked like it would be only a minor...

Eureka-ROM for Your Rooted Google Chromecast

Not too long ago, we talked about KyoCast by XDA Forum Member Kyonz.

Google Chromecast Now Supports Ten New Apps, Local Content Now Here

The Google Chromecast is a great little media streaming device---and one that doesn't break the bank while accomplishing the basics and doing them relatively well. But ever since the device's launch, the list of supported apps has been quite depressing. Despite this, Google recently made changes to the Google Play Store to better highlight Chromecast-enabled applications,...
