Update: Anime provider Crunchyroll has gained Chromecast support as well.
The 2014 FIFA World Cup will start next week, making this just the right time for WatchESPN and MLS Matchday to roll out their new ability to stream matches straight to Chromecast. You still need a cable subscription to enjoy any of the content, but the feature prevents having to reach for the TV remote and navigate that troublesome guide for the correct channel. Just fire up that app and poke that touchscreen the way we Android fans just can't get enough of.
Those of you who are lucky enough to attend the game in person can rest assured knowing that when you get back, Google+ Photos is now ready to let you toss up those photos and recordings you took up onto the big screen as well.
Of course, anyone who doesn't enjoy soccer - excuse me, football - can still get some use out of that last bit of news. We all have photos, or screenshots, that need sharing.
The Photos support appears to be toggled server-side, as I was able to test out the feature without having to download an update. Here are links so you can try everything out for yourself.
