Google now catalogs hundreds of Chromecast apps for easier discovery
Discovering new apps to use with Google’s(S GOOG) Chromecast streaming stick just got a lot easier: Google started to add a catalog of hundreds of apps capable of casting to the Chromecast website. The site previously only listed a few select featured apps from major publishers, but now includes more than 400 apps, ranging from video services to games to personal media players.
Also nice: The app catalog can be sorted by iOS(s aapl), Android and web apps, and then offers links to download each app either on Google Play or on the iOS App Store. Google first announced that it would make discovery of apps easier at Google I/O, where it also introduced screen mirroring for Chromecast.
