Developers rejoice, as Google launched Google Play Services version 4.2 this morning, which brings the full Google Cast SDK inside. With the new SDK, developers can start throwing a cast button right into their apps and then publish them to Google Play for users to download.
Google has worked hard to make the process fast and simple, so we should start seeing apps getting updated with Cast support pretty soon.
For developers, this is great news. For users, now we play the waiting game.
The Google Cast SDK makes it easy to bring your content to the TV. There’s no need to create a new app — just incorporate the SDK into your existing mobile and web apps. You are in control of how and when you publish your Cast-ready app to users through the Google Cast developer console.
Developers can head to their Google Services area in the Developers site to start working.
