Google VP dishes on future of Chromecast

Google’s Chromecast device has started off modestly, with approved service providers slowly being added since it’s launch earlier this year.

According to an interview of Google VP of Product Management Mario Queiroz on Gigaom, 2014 is going to be the year for Chromecast to grow.

The growth will come from both an expanded international rollout, and the launch of the final SDK. Up until now, developers have had access to a beta version of the SDK to incorporate Chromecast into their apps, but they’ve yet been able to share the implementation with the public.

The fact the SDK is coming out of beta, paired with international expansion is sure to bring more apps, and drive more implementation of Chromecast from developers into existing apps.

For more details around Google’s plans for Chromecast in 2014, be sure to read the interview in its entirety.

If you could request one app to being Chromecast support to it, what would it be and why?

    Man I will take mirror my screen to TV for 20 Jason. I don’t think its to much to
    ask to be able to mirror whatever is on my phone or tablets to the TV. Be it a racing game or simple web browser. All of the so called mirror type stuff in Android and Samsung doesn’t really work all that great. For example on my Note 2 or Note 8 you have to be bone stock for mirror to work and that’s to a Samsung TV. It only works 1/3rd of the time. It would be nice to be able to mirror in a device/Rom agnostic environment.
