Chromecast support is coming to Vimeo... eventually

Video service Vimeo announced that it remains committed to adding Chromecast support to its app. Company CTO Andrew Pile said in an interview that Chromecast support will be coming in the future, but he did not give a timeline on when that would happen.

Gigaom reported that Vimeo is still trying to figure out which platforms will get Chromecast support first at this time:

"It's gonna come, we just don't know when," said Vimeo CTO Andrew Pile during an interview Friday. Pile added that Chromecast support has been frequently requested, but that Vimeo is still trying to figure out how to slot it into its development roadmap, and which platforms to target first.

Of course, we'd argue that Android should probably be the first place where Vimeo implements Chromecast support. But we could be biased.

  • That's long overdue, especially with their paid VOD platform. It's crazy that they let us buy stuff, but don't give us some decent options to watch it on the big TV.
