It’s barely a week old and for those that have been experiencing issues with their Chromecast, Google is hot on the case with a software update. The bug fixing update is said to address performance, reliability, and security and while I personally haven’t experienced anything too weird with my Chromecast, I have seen reports of display issues and whatnot.
Chromecast Product Manager Ambarish Kenghe mentions that users wont have to do anything in order to receive the update, and that it will rolling out over-the-air over the next few days. Current build number is 12078 with the update being 12840. Fingers crossed I can screencast my entire desktop for more than a few seconds now.
