Chromecast gets VUDU, Rdio and Crackle support Chromecast expanded its growing collection of supported services this week, with VUDU, Rdio and Crackle all supporting Google's casting dongle across platforms.
You can now watch the latest movies and TV shows on VUDU with Chromecast (1080p supported) from the Google Chrome web browser through the existing extension on a Desaktop PC or Mac, or you can download VUDU Player for the iOS and Android platforms to cast from smartphones and tablets.

Rdio also now allows you to cast songs, albums, stations, and playlists to your TV while album art will be viewable on screen during playback. Again, all you have to do is press the cast icon in the Rdio iOS, Android or Web apps.

"Rdio on Google Chromecast marks another milestone in Rdio's commitment to delivering the best music experience everywhere," said Anthony Bay, chief executive officer of Rdio.

"Music fans can access Rdio's massive catalog of over 20 million songs or start a station easily, all from Chromecast on their TV."

Finally, Crackle has also updated its iOS and Android apps to support casting movies and short videos from Chromecast.
