Last August, after losing Chromecast support, AllCast is back once again that allows its users to stream local pictures, videos and music from their android device to their Chromecast over Wi-Fi. After a huge tribulation, finally Koushik Dutta’s AllCast application has been launched officially that is compatible with the Chromecast.
All thanks to Google’s release of the Google Cast SDK that has been released yesterday. Koushik Dutta was one of the first developers, who offered an application that could send pictures, music and videos to the Chromecast, but Google put the kibosh on it since lots of applications were only believed to work on whitelisted Chromecast devices.
When it comes to AllCast application, it offers users with something of an AirPlay like experience for streaming music, pictures to your TV through different devices like Roku, Apple TV and now it also works with Chromecast again.
As we all know that in the month of August, Google purposely broke AllCast by releasing a Chromecast update that stop video playback support, said by Koushik Dutta.
When firstly Google clarified that the SDK was in developer preview and numerous transitions were still to come. At the time the SDK wanted to be for official testing only, not independent efforts such as AllCast app. Till today, Chromecast has worked with some android applications such as Hulu Plus, Netflix, Pandora, YouTube and some others.
Even without the Chromecast support, the development of AllCast continued, and finally the application exited from beta in the month of December, enabling all the users to stream from Android devices to Apple TV.
Moreover, the AllCast android app supports with DLNA streaming and today it also works with Xbox One, Samsung, Roku, Panasonic Smart TVs and Google TVs. Users are also able to stream their content from Dropbox or Google Drive or from any local device that has SD cards.
To do such kind of things, you have to launch an application and have to pick your destination and then media you want to stream. AllCast is one such app that automatically detects and lists your compatible file types.
On Google Play, this updated application has been live, so users can easily download this application and get numerous benefits. For AllCast to work with ChromeCast, users will need Google Play services 4.2, and Google also declared yesterday that the latest release began rolling out to Android devices worldwide on Monday.
So, android users can easily download this application; however, they can also find many more android apps that are Chromecast supported such as Avia, Google Play Movies & TV, HBO GO, Hulu Plus, Netflix, Pandora and many more.
