The BBC Sports app for Android has been updated today with a few new features, most notably a way for the app to connect to a Chromecast HDMI dongle for the first time so that live and on-demand video from the app can be streamed from a smartphone or tablet to a big screen television.

In addition to the new Chromecast support, the BBC Sports app now has a new dedicated section for the 2014 Commonwealth Games, which are set to begin later this week in Glasgow, Scotland. The app will provide live video and highlights, along with a "full schedule, live text commentary, medals table, reports and features and analysis." There's even a way to set the app up so that alerts can be sent out for gold, silver and bronze medal wins.

If you live in the UK, do you plan to use the new features on the BBC Sports app, including the streaming video support via Chromecast?
