Last week, Google announced the release of the Google Cast SDK, but developers weren’t allowed to release their Chromecast compatible apps until Google Play Services 4.2 was completely rolled out. If you remember, cloud.tv released an updated version of Dayframe with Chromecast compatibility, but had to pull it later in the day since Google didn’t want new apps to be released just yet. For whatever reason, they allowed AllCast to stay in the Play Store.
Google just announced that the rollout is complete, thus the Google Play Services 4.2 SDK is now available. This new version of Google Play Services includes Google Cast APIs as well as updated Google Drive APIs. and more. This means that apps like Dayframe, and hopefully a slew of others, can now be released with Chromecast compatibility. Let the floodgates open.
