It’s been nearly 6 months since Google’s Chromecast officially became available for purchase, and it’s only now regular ‘ol developers are finally allowed to take advantage of the SDK. Up until now, we’ve watched as developers like Koush — creator of the AllCast app for Android — had to reverse engineer his way into building apps with Chromecast support.
Today, this is no longer needed as developers now have the tools they need to get on their apps up and running with Chromecast. Great news for developers, and even better news for users as currently, there’s only a handful of apps offering Chromecast support.
With Google Play services 4.2 also available worldwide for Android devices starting today, there’s no excuse for your favorite apps to begin integrating Chromecast functionality. Crunchyroll, you guys listening?
