Redbox-Thumb

With all of the video streaming options out there these days, it wouldn't surprise us in the slightest if Redbox isn't the first app that comes to mind when the movie-watching mood strikes.

Now there's a wish list in the sidebar for the media that is best saved for later.

CloudCaster certainly has a ton of file sources for casting, but it's only compatible with the Chromecast – the similar AllCast app supports DLNA receivers and other devices like the Fire TV as well.

At the recent Accel Design Conference, Google's head of design for Android, his holo-ness Matias Duarte, sat down for an interview with The Verge Editor-in-Chief Joshua Topolsky.

At the time, the feature only worked on the eleven devices that the developers tested. Now it should work on any Android device running Ice Cream Sandwich or above.

The HTML5 and Flash video player from this company is used on more than 2 million websites including Kickstarter, Electronic Arts, and ESPN. That's why it's kind of a big deal that JW Player is adding support for Chromecast.

2014-04-01 10_48_13-Chromecast_ A New Era of Squirrel Entertainment - YouTube

Google is really heavy on the joke content this year. There's the Photobombing, Pokémon Maps, Signature Apps, and now Chromecast for Squirrels. What? Small mammals have video they want to watch on bigger screens too.

The video really drives the point home that Chromecast is all about squirrel empowerment and choice. No longer will squirrels have to watch human video content, because now there's Chromecast. As for the paw-friendly app situation, Google is working on that.

A few days ago, it was confirmed that Google had started asking manufacturers to brand boot animations with a specific "Powered by Android" lockup as part of Google's Mobile Services license. Samsung's Galaxy S5 and HTC's new One M8 both carry the branding, and today Motorola's Moto X and Moto G have joined the party, but Motorola has something else in store as well - a new boot animation just in time for April Fools Day.
