Chromecast Featured ready to cast

Chromecast users have a few new apps to sink their teeth into starting today. This update is more for sports fans than anyone else, though folks who like to share photos on the big screen and watch anime will find nice functionality, as well.

For sports, Google is getting us ready for World Cup season as we now have access to WatchESPN and Major League Soccer (that last one being important if you need to get psyched up ahead of time). It’ll also be good for basketball fans tuning into the NBA Finals.

If you happen to want to share some of your Google+ photos with your family and friends on the big screen, you’ll now be able to do that with a simple tap of the cast button inside the photos portion of the app. Finally, anime addicts are treated to Crunchyroll’s catalog of shows (which consists of 25,000 videos and 12,000 hours of otaku goodness).

Links to all these apps can be found straight ahead, or just jump into the Google Play app on your phone and update them to get the new functionality. Happy casting!
