Latest Plex Update Adds Improvements To Chromecast Support, Shared Sync, And Other Enhancements

Plex was one of the early apps to add Chromecast support. This is great, because as a service that takes content stored on one of your computers and makes it accessible anywhere, it's the ideal candidate for Chromecasting.
