Google Cast, is a technology that allows us to cast our favorite entertainment and application from our phones, tablets or laptops right to our TV or speakers. Chromecast has changed our entertainment style as it gives us home entertainment from our smartphones/iPhones.

Chromecast is doing well in sales over the entire world with having more that 17 million units sold since it’s released and the Cast button being pressed by more than 1.5 billion times as of now. To make it better, Google has recently introduced a new set of APIs which have remarkable capabilities that make it easier for developers to make more intelligent applications that keep running on a smartphone, tablet or PC, and afterward wirelessly stream to its Chromecast device, which connects to a TV.

Cast Remote Display APIs

The company has released the Remote Display API for iOS and Android which is available now under the beta tag. Now developers can create second-screen experiences where something different is shown on the mobile device whereas earlier casting any content to the TV would result in a mirroring experience where the same content as displayed on the TV is displayed on the mobile device.

Game Manager APIs

Another API called Google Cast Game Manager will allow developers to streamline the experience of making multi-player game applications for all the platforms, the feature that initially took off in November. This will lead to possibly more vivid board games or action games built for multiple players.

APIS For Autoplay and Queuing

When combined together the two new APIs will allow developers to create a coherent experience of continuous playback- you can now queue up the content and begin buffering even before the playback of the current is finished. Alongside control of autoplay, these new APIs consider things like repeat mode, queue reordering, skipping between items in a playlist, and the ability to demonstrate a review of what thing is next in the Cast queue.

Well, with the launch of these new APIs, Chromecast streaming is about to get faster and smoother. All of these new APIs are available for Android today and will be available for iOS and Chrome with the latest updates within a few forthcoming days.
