Thanks to the fairly recent release of Google's Chromecast SDK, more and more apps are starting to add support for the extremely useful HDMI dongle. XBCM Remote application Yatse recently saw a Chromecast supporting update, and now Swiss based online radio 1.FM has also added support for streaming to Chromecast devices.

For those who may not be aware, 1.FM is an online radio broadcasting network that offers "a variety of internet radio channels covering various music genres, time period and styles." It's also free, which is always a plus.

The update is currently live in the Play Store, and you can find the application at the link below.

Thanks, Adi!

    Ball is in your court TuneIn radio....

      TuneIn Sucks. I bought the pro version. It never plays the station I want. I choose a station, it plays a station in another state, that isn't even the same genre.

        I love tune in never had a problem bought pro a long time ago too

        Tunein is F'n awesome. It needs to be Chromecasted now

      It really takes them too long, right? I was hoping that the update they released last week would bring Chromecast support, but it didn't.

      While we're waiting I've created a Chromecast webapp, only usuable in Google Chrome with the Cast-extension installed, called RadioCaster http://radiocaster.projectfive.nl. For now, I've listed a few of my favorite TuneIn Radiostations and am now able to stream them to the chromecast. It's completely free and if your missing your favorite radiostations let me know, I can add them. Hopefully TuneIn radio delivers a Chromecast-ready update soon..

    To tell you truth... I thought there would be more apps supporting Chromecast by now. It has been a slow, and painfully wait for the other apps.

    Holy balks, look how many apps have got Chromecast support recently :O

  • Cory_S

    Just thought of something. With the native chromecast apps it has a copy of the app on the chromecast, say youtube...it actually launches its own youtube app, same for netflix. Is google actually downloading every app that adds support to the chromecast? Is it only doing it to the ones you use? How does it manage storage?

    Check out the Android music app Mono (http://mono-cloud.appspot.com). Very cool with the ability to cast YouTube, SoundCloud and local files.
