Good news for anyone outside the U.S. who's managed to import a Chromecast into their country. We're hearing reports that the accompanying Android app can now be downloaded through Google Play by international users, and we've confirmed that that's the case in the UK. (AC readers have chimed in saying they're seeing it in many other countries, so it appears all regional restrictions on the app may have been lifted.)
Previously the Chromecast app, like the dongle, was unavailable to all outside the U.S. Unfortunately the device itself is still cannot be purchased from the UK Google Play Store, though the app's new international availability may signal possible changes ahead.
