Google to rebrand the official Chromecast app to Google Cast

Google has announced the company will be rebranding the Chromecast app as Google Cast, effective this week. As well as a shiny new website, the official apps for both Android and iOS will be updated to reflect the new name. The switch makes sense considering just how many devices can now run Google Cast technology, including TVs, displays, Chromecast, and even speakers.

"We're also changing the name of the Chromecast app to Google Cast app, to better reflect that Google Cast technology is now supported across a wide range of devices such as Chromecast, TVs, displays and speakers. The Google Cast app makes it easy for you to discover great stuff to watch, find more apps, customize backdrop, and more. The updated Google Cast app will be rolling out this week on Android & iOS."

As noted in the announcement, the change should take place this week on supported mobile platforms. Hit the new Google Cast website below to see what products support Google's technology.
