Chromecast App Updated To v1.7 With Screen Casting Integration [APK Download]

Earlier today Google flipped a switch enabling the screen casting feature it unveiled at Google I/O. If you have one of the supported devices, you don't have to do a thing to try it out. Just fire up Quick Settings and hit the screen cast icon. But if this isn't discoverable enough, Google has also updated the Chromecast app to bring more attention to the feature.

What's New

A Cast Screen option is now available in the navigation sidebar.

Google Camera Update Adds Remote Shutter For Android Wear (With Image Review), Refreshed Panorama Interface [APK Download]

Google's Camera app just got a bump up to version 2.3 (rolling out in stages of course), which adds a very welcome feature - remote shutter functionality for Android Wear devices.

The Sprint LivePro Is An Android-Powered Mini Projector, Mobile Hotspot, And External Battery All In One Weird Little Package

The convergence of multiple devices can be a good thing. After all, who wants to carry a bunch of different stuff around when a single thing will do? This is, presumably, the rationale behind the Sprint LivePro, but maybe it's gone a little far. This is a mobile hotspot with a built-in projector and a battery that can charge your phone. The whole thing is, of course, powered by Android.

Paid Apps On Android Wear Made Possible Through Google Workaround, Let The Spending Begin

Google's recently launched Android Wear platform had a bit of a rough weekend when it ran into an unexpected snag regarding paid apps – it couldn't install them.

[For Developers] Google Cast SDK Updated With Media Player Library Improvements And Native Support For Subtitles

Very few things are as pleasing to a developer than deleting large blocks of code that aren't needed anymore. That's exactly what many developers of apps targeting the Chromecast are going to be doing this week after an update to the Google Cast SDK.
