Google announced some new Chromecast support on the Chrome blog overnight, which concentrated heavily on sports related updates.

Primaril, the blog focused on the introduction of Chromecast support for ESPN and Major League Soccer(MLS). We do have ESPN here in Australia thanks to Foxtel, but whether this service translates with your subscription is unclear, but if you want it, it may be worth clarifying with Foxtel. MLS on the other hand seems to be region restricted.

The major one for Australia and indeed, Google+ users is the addition of Chromecast support for the Google+ photos and videos app, with Google announcing :

Starting today, you can transform your TV into a photo album and cast Google+ photos and videos. Just look for the cast button in the Photos view of Google+ for Android and iOS.

There was a side announcement for Chromecast support for Crunchyroll, a Japanese broadcasting service which offers streaming from their library of ‘over 25,000 videos and 12,000 hours of Anime, Korean Drama and Live-Action titles’.

The update to the Google+ photos and videos app is rolling out now, so check it out now.

ESPN can be streamed via the web if you have a FOXTel login. Go to espn3.com Unfortunately, the WatchESPN is not supported for Australian subscribers yet.
