Google Play now listing Chromecast compatible apps

ChromecastChromecast was launched earlier this year by Google as a TV compatible dongle to display and stream all your online content in one place. However, compatibility is currently limited to big names like Hulu, HBO GO, Netflix and others. But this is set to change soon as Google is all geared up to release the Chromecast SDK to developers in the coming days.

This will allow third party developers to utilize the functioning of Chromecast with new apps. And to accommodate for this change, Google has added a new Chromecast subcategory in the Play Store, which lists all apps compatible with the new dongle. This is a very subtle yet significant change to the system which now makes it easier for users to filter apps compatible with the dongle. We recently reported on how Chromecast app was made available to users outside the U.S., indicating future expansion. The dongle can be bought for $35 through the Google Play Store and other major online retailers.
