AllCast introduces a receiver for Chrome


Koushik Dutta, the developer behind a number of useful things but revelantly AllCast, has announced on his Google+ page that AllCast is to receive support for some further devices, because very soon there’ll be an AllCast receiver for Chrome.

This means that you’ll be able to use any Chrome device — web browsers on desktops, laptops, tablets and more, as well as ChromeOS laptops and desktops — as a receiver for casting data from the AllCast app. You’ll be able to cast audio, video, music and mirroring displays, using any Chrome receiver to display.

If you’ve got a Chrome device, or you use the Chrome browser, and you’d like to check this out, head on over to AllCast extension page on the Chrome Web Store and install the plugin. You’ll also need the latest version of the AllCast app to get it working.

Developer: ClockworkMod
Price: Free

For those thinking “yeah, that’s great, but I’d like to be able to cast FROM a Chrome device”, don’t worry, Koush says it’s coming soon!

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.
