Beginning today you can enjoy action sports, news, music videos, and more with the addition of VEVO, Red Bull.TV, Songza, PostTV, Viki, Revision 3, and BeyondPod. And for those many holiday gatherings, you can also cast your personal media straight to your TV using Plex, Avia, or RealPlayer Cloud. There’s no need to huddle around small screens when you can share your own photos and videos using your phone, tablet, or laptop.
Learn more about the supported apps and stay up to date about what's new at chromecast.com/apps. To start casting from these apps, make sure you have the latest versions for +Android or iOS, or use #Chrome to cast from your laptop.
+Arjen van Hooydonk Spotify has labeled the request as "Not right now" and they don't seem to interested in adding support [source below]. The remaining two apps that keep me from switching from Roku to Chromecast are Spotify and Vudu. Since Vudu support is scarce at best support is extremely unlikely. They haven't even added airplay and they don't seem to be interested in doing so. If Spotify adds support I'll consider switching without Vudu (because I have local copies of my movies on Plex).
Here's a crazy idea: How about you allow developers to create programs that let us watch what we want on the hardware we paid you for? We didn't buy Chromecast to have you tell us what to watch with it. We bought it to see stuff on a TV. That is all you need to focus on, letting that happen. Remove the barriers.
You crippled Chromecasts after you sold them. That sucks as bad as when you did similar to your app for ios that allowed working with Word docs and Excel spreadsheets. After people paid for it, you gutted it, and removed support for certain online file storage services.
You are getting too much like Apple. Knock it off.
+Mike Kalby how about you return it and plug your computer into your tv? Its a Google device for Google users to stream Google run apps so they can make money, not the developers. Hence its extremely low price point.
+Arvid Bux Fully agree with the idea of photo sharing. This is a no brainer... what a perfect, collaborative way to share pictures over the holidays. (Drive support in general would be great... and mirroring... awesome).
Plex Requires their PlexPass subscription service even after you pay for the Android app. But a recent response to the overwhelming negative reaction on Google Play states the ChromeCast will be free after this introductory period.
Everyone, with Avia you can cast your local photos or your photos on dropbox or picasa (=g+ photos). Videos also work, but casting local 720p videos doesn't work very well, hangs a lot, from picasa it works much better.

ultraviolet = Flixster, Cinema Now (ouch ) and Vudu and Vudu takes Blu ray switches. but that HDX sucks bandwidth at least right now Vudu can go to Roku so they seem to be the closest to doing something. CinemaNow? bit of a joke :( can login on my tablet but not the phone.
If anyone took the time to READ what Google posted, what chromecast initially stated it could do, and how...there would be so much LESS whining. I'm sure they are working on it if it isn't available yet. I want some of the same things others want, but I have patience. If you have a new (or newer?) phone and the latest update, screen mirroring is now an option (I have the SGN3). Although mirroring is such an annoying way to go, whatever. I DO wish for some weeding out, leaving fully working, running, packed with content app options only. I DO know casting from your PC or laptop is a pain, but come on...when I first got my chromecast, I had very few apps: Google music, YouTube, hulu, Netflix, and casting chrome from my laptop, which was all clearly stated. I would love to read blogs on my TV. Bloglovin, feedly, would be great...I haven't even checked, but I'm sure its being worked on. Chill out folks. Everything has a process and takes time for tons of reasons, obviously. And thank you Google Chrome, I love you. I hope that doesn't sound too weird :)
