Chromecast – a versatile device

OneDrive for Android supports Chromecast streaming  as of its latest update. 

Microsoft had previously teased plans to support Chromecast streaming for files stored in its free cloud storage service.

With OneDrive (v3.2) for Android this feature is delivered.

You can fling compatible images, music and video files stored in OneDrive account to a nearby TV with just a couple of taps.

Using the feature is simple enough. When OneDrive detects a Chromecast device on the network it shows a Cast button in the toolbar. Clicking on this button prompts the user to select a target Cast device. Users can then proceed to tap on a file to open/preview it on their TV.

OneDrive joins Google Drive, Dropbox and Box as cloud storage supporting the technology.
