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.

    Microsoft has finally realised that one of the best ways to get consumers actively using their products is to accept that other companies’ products are actually good, and to tie in with them. I can imagine this service attracting a lot of new OneDrive users, just to have this functionality that even Google doesn’t universally offer.

      Yep, Microsoft is playing Google’s game.

        I have no problem with this – in fact, I’m a fan of it. If companies can overcome their (for want of a better phrase) typical feud and conquest for supremacy and learn to use each other’s strengths then we’re going to get a lot more done.

          This is where Apple faults. They make some really great products and services, however they are exclusive and you need to buy into ‘everything Apple’ to have a good time. – But in saying that, that is the model they want, and the model that works for them.

          Microsoft needs to remember what made them successful, and that was producing platforms and software just about every consumer could obtain and use on their system / hardware of choice.

    Great article Joey. For those who live outside US like me, you can access Netflix, Hulu and similar media stations on your Chromecast by using UnoTelly or similar tools.

    After 5 yrs I decided to abandon my previous job and I never felt this good… I started doing work at home, for this company I discovered over internet, few hrs each day, and I make much more than i did on my last job… My last month pay-check was for 9 thousand dollars… Amazing thing about it is that now i have more time with my kids… SECURE54.COM
