Chrome for Android gets better and better everyday, and with the launch of Chromecast in Australia seemingly slated for next week – at least according to last Sunday’s Dick Smith slip-up – it’s getting a timely update indeed, with Google adding Chromecast support to the browser.
The Chromecast compatability showed up in the changelog in the update to the latest version. Chromecast support actually came to Chrome Beta for Android last month, now it’s hit the mainstream with the main Chrome for Android browser. Launching alongside the Chromecast support is another interesting feature – the option to re-open a tab you’ve just closed.
As you can see from the list below, there’s also inclusions for full-screen HTML5 video support and a strange one ‘Support for some multi-window devices’ – perhaps Samsung’s multi-tasking option, and as usual, the star of any release: Bug Fixes!
You can download the update to Chrome now from Google Play where it’s available for Android devices running Android 4.0 and upwards.
