Google Chromecast App Gets Card Styled Interface

Google Chromecast app has now received an update in the Play store which now allows all the devices to be displayed in a new card style and it also adds backdrop images.

The settings for the backdrop images remain the same so that you will be able to see all the five images used in the Chromecast device whenever it goes to standby mode. The images will have the relevant links attached to it so that you can click on it and view more details.

If it is a Google Plus profile, the photo will be displayed along with other information. The settings panel now lets you decide a speed in which the background images are scrolled through. You can keep it half, full or double based on your need. The app needs to be updated from the play store while your Chromecast device doesn’t need one.

  1. As an alternative to the static backdrop images, you can also use our apps to have a live, moving background:

    Beaches on TV via Chromecast –
    Aquariums on TV via Chromecast –
    Fireplaces on TV via Chromecast –
