Chromecast

OK, folks. If you've got a Chromecast but have had issues getting it to connect to certain devices, it's time to update your Chromecast app. Google's put forth some new code that should fix some discoverability problems.

Looking through our ever-busy Chromecast forums, it looks like this should help out a few folks. Have at it.

If you just leave it plugged in, they automatically update as soon as you turn it on it will install any new updates that Google sent out.

LaMarcus says:

Isn't this just an update for the app in the play store?

phor11 says:

Yea, I was under the impression it wasn't an update for the chromecast, but for the chromecast app you install on your phone/tablet/laptop in order to set up the device for the first time.

Depends on when you ordered it. Everything after August 7th won't ship till October. I ordered mine on July 25th and didn't get it to August 14th.

How do you update it?

mcgowan398 says:

It will probably be done OTA with no task from the user like the last one.

Got the Chromecast app update for my Bionic last night. And immediately it found the Chromecast, just like my N7 did before. All set now. Thanks Google/Chromecast for fixing it!

Your Bionic now can cast Google Play Music/Movies/TV and Netflix? I got the update and my Bionic now recognizes my Chromecast, but it still will not cast Google Play Music/Movies/TV and Netflix. It will only cast Youtube.

Same here. My Droid Bionic now recognizes Chromecast, but the CC play button only appears in Youtube....not Netflix. Kind of lame that it doesn't work on a Android operating system made by Google.
