Nexus devices on sale: Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P  |  The Ausdroid Shop has all your Nexus accessories here.

That US$35 dongle just got a whole lot more useful this morning with Google announcing 10 new services and Apps that are compatible with Chromecast.

Amongst the services are action sports, news, music videos services such as :

And the big one which we’ve all been waiting for, the ability to stream local media from your phone or tablet over Plex(PlexPass required), Avia(Chromecasting via $2.89 IAP) or RealPlayer Cloud.

We’re still checking out all the Apps and services that have become available this morning but there seems to be some commments about Vevo being available in the US only. We’re also speaking to Fishpond about getting their Chromecast orders back up and running after they ran out of stock, but for now, those of you who purchased early should be able to play nicely with the new functions, for those who don’t have a Chromecast why not fill in the Ausdroid Reader Survey for your chance to win one!
