Android SDK updated, tons of Chromecast apps expected soon Google has updated their Play Services SDK this week, meaning tons of Chromecast apps should be on the way.
The SDK has added support for the HDMI dongle, meaning developers can choose to add the functionality to their apps if they so choose.

Earlier in the month, Google made the announcement that the Chromecast SDK had been opened up to the developer public, but the company did note that the Android framework would need to be updated, as well.

Reads the new post: "Google Play services 4.2 is now rolled out to devices worldwide. The new release includes Google Cast APIs that let you bring content to the TV, updated Google Drive APIs, and more.

You can get started developing today by downloading the updated Google Play services SDK (r15) from the SDK Manager. API details and samples are also available in the updated documentation."
