Chromecast, the $35 HDMI dongle that can control media streaming from a smartphone or tablet, has added support for several new media apps today, including popular content sources like VEVO, Songza, and Revision 3. Google has spent the past few months encouraging developers to explore Chromecast as a way to enable web-connected smart TV features but only approved partners have so far been able to release apps, and it has mainly been large media companies to be whitelisted. That trend continues today with the announcement that the following apps will support Chromecast through updates rolling out over the next few days:
- VEVO - a music video streaming service
- Red Bull.TV - action sports and lifestyle video clips
- Songza - curated music streaming service
- PostTV - video channel of Washington Post news outlet
- Viki - Anime, dramas, telenovelas, and more
- Revision 3 - videos from tech-focused outlet
- BeyondPod - audio and video podcast manager
- Plex - stream personal media collection to TV
- Avia - stream persona media collection
- RealPlayer Cloud - stream personal media collection
