ShiftyCast

Ausdroid got the opportunity today to drop in at the offices of developers Shifty Jelly today, to take a look at some of the latest developments in Pocket Casts, specifically the streaming capabilities that they’ve built-in using the Chromecast they’ve gotten their hands on.

While some of the final details, like the SDK are yet to be finalised – currently preventing all third party Chromecast capable apps from being released – you can see in the brief video below that streaming to a Chromecast via their popular podcast app – Pocketcasts – is indeed possible; and it’s as easy as connecting your device and pressing play.

We would like to thank Russell Ivanovic and Phil Simpson from Shifty Jelly for allowing us into their offices again and for letting us give you a sneak peak at what’s hopefully to come once Google have finalised the SDK for Chromecast and allow third party apps to utilize the service officially.

Are you a Pocketcasts user? Would you stream your audio podcasts to your screen at home, or just videos? Let us (and Shifty Jelly) know in the comments below.
