38 sec read

The AllCast updates just keep coming. Each introduces new functionality, but the latest release packs together more new features than most. By combining aesthetic changes with usability improvements, users of this media Chromecasting app are in for quite the treat. In the left screenshot below, we see a new “now playing” screen. For the initiated, this is the screen that displays while content is streaming to your TV screen. 

Chromecast is a $35 HDMI dongle made by Google. The company says that it has already sold “millions” of Chromecast units just in the U.S., so it goes without saying that this dongle has proven to be quite a hit. If you happen to own one then you might have heard about the AllCast app for Chromecast. It was first launched right after Chromecast went up for sale. It allowed users to stream local content from their devices. Google dropped the banhammer initially but when the Chromecast API was opened up, AllCast regained its crucial feature. The developer has now launched a new AllCast updatewhich brings even more new features.
