If you haven’t already, it’s time to pony up the $35 for a Chromecast. Today, Google released the Chromecast SDK to developers, giving them the power to build a cast button into their apps. Up until now, only select partners have been able to build in Chromecast support, but this now means almost any app (Android, iOS, and web) on your devices could enable a cast button and bring mirroring or casting abilities from phone/tablet/computer to big screen. 

The last big Chromecast update we saw came during the holidays, when Google introduced a set of 10 new apps that had support. With the SDK now ready for developers, we could see a wave of them within days or the coming weeks. As those roll out, we’ll be sure to let you know the good ones.

If you are a developer, be sure to head over to the Google Developers Blog to learn all there is to learn about building Chromecast support into your apps.

Any apps in particular you’d like to see receive Chromecast support?
