Well look at what we have here… an update to Comcast’s XFINITY TV app that gives us full Ice Cream Sandwich support! It’s been about a month since the last update, which added some basic but useful features such as auto-detecting your channel lineup, and accessing favorite and recent channels. The release notes for this latest update simply states the following:
What’s in this version:
- Ice Cream Sandwich support for tablets and handsets
- Minor bug fixes
This means that users with an ICS device (including tablets) can now play. Unfortunately, this update still does NOT get us streaming video of any kind, a feature currently exclusive to the iOS version of the app. Why, Comcast? Your newly launched Streampix service had me excited until I saw that you only support mobile streaming to an iOS device… no little green robot love :-(
My disappointment aside, the app is actually pretty good for what it does offer. See a screenshot of it running on my Xoom, and download it from the Play Store after the break.
