Google Chromecast SDK released to developers, Google Play Services updated as well
Devs now able to start making 'Google Cast-ready' applications on Android and iOS
Google has announced the availability of the Google Cast SDK for all developers, opening the floodgates to devs wanting to incorporate Chromecast support into their Android and iOS apps, or web content through Chrome. While the Google Cast SDK has been available since last year as a developer preview with certain restrictions attached, today's launch represents the first "finished" version of the SDK. On the device side, Google Cast SDK support is rolling out as part of Google Play Services version 4.2 starting today.
Google's developers guide page for the SDK notes that it's "undergone a thorough overhaul since the developer preview release," advising developers to review its documentation before getting started.
So now that the Google Cast SDK is out in the open, what apps would you like to see get Chromecast support? Let us know in the comments!
