There are plenty of imported Google Chromecast dongles already in Australia, but Google is yet to officially sell them outside of the US. That may be about to change, as the Chromecast App has just landed in the Australian Google Play store.
This could very well point to an imminent release for the device in Australia.
Google’s description from the store:
Chromecast is the easiest way to enjoy online video and anything from the web on your TV. Plug it into any HDTV and control it with your existing smartphone, tablet, or laptop. No remotes required. Cast your favorites from Google Play, YouTube, Netflix, and Chrome to your TV with the press of a button.

Use the Chromecast app to:
• Set up your Chromecast to work with your Wi-Fi network
• Manage your Chromecast settings (such as changing your device name, Wi-Fi password, etc.)
The Chromecast costs US $35 in the American Google Play store, it would be nice to see it sell for a similar price when it launches in Australia, though we have no word on when that will be.
To install the App for those lucky enough to have a Chromecast in Australia already, head over to the Google Play store and install it.
