A Tuesday post on the Google Chrome blog brought a little good news for the Chromecast faithful. Several applications have received Chromecast capability and can now be streamed from any connected device. Many are US only.
On their post, they state,
Chromecast has a little something for everyone in the family to enjoy, and today we’re adding even more options for kids, music lovers and gamers.
Those applications are:
- WATCH Disney
- WATCH Disney Junior
- WATCH Disney XD
- WATCH ABC
- NPR One
A few of these applications, Disney and ABC in particular require a cable subscription to view them. So in those cases, these applications work as a nice on demand venue or for savvy children who like to binge watch cartoons. For those true cord cutters using a Chromecast, they’re little help, though they might enjoy iHeartRadio and a couple other offerings.
Twitch and DramaFever are probably two of the more eagerly awaited applications to receive Chromecast support. Twitch is the immensely popular game viewing platform that was recently purchased by Amazon. DramaFever is an Asian based international broadcasting site that focuses on movies, television shows, documentaries, etc.
With these releases, the Chromecast team is touting a little something for everyone. For those who are streaming their content through this popular dongle, let us know if you’ve tried any of these applications and how they worked for you.
