Chromecast for iOS app official

There's some good news today for consumers that have turned their home into a melting pot of mobile platforms, as Google has released an official Chromecast app for iOS into the App Store.

Just like the Android app that's been available for some time now, the Chromecast app for iOS allows users to easily set up their device with a Wi-Fi network and manage its settings. The Chromecast for iOS app weighs in at 6.2MB and is compatible with both the iPhone and iPad.

Google's Chromecast is a small dongle that plugs into an open HDMI port on a receiver or television. After hopping onto a Wi-Fi connection, the Chromecast enables users to "cast" content from services like YouTube and Netflix to their TV from their smartphone, tablet or computer and then control playback. iOS users have been able to set up their Chromecasts using a computer since the device launched last month, but this new iOS app ought to make the process even easier.

If you've got a piece of iOS hardware and a Chromecast that are both living under your roof, you can snag Google's official Chromecast for iOS app at the App Store link below.
