Popcorn Time beta 2.0 gives Android users Chromecast support

We received an email yesterday from pirated movie streaming service Popcorn Time, showing off the upcoming features of its 2.0 version beta software for Android.
Reads the email:
Just wanted to let you know that we just released the new Android beta 2.0 version and for the first time "Androiders" can cast their favorite movies and TV shows to their TV's using their Chromecast device!!!

After the alpha with Chromecast for PC, now comes the Android's turn, and Mac will be next, hopefully in the upcoming weeks.

What else is new?

1. Automatic updates
2. Native UI
3. Faster download rate of movies/TV shows
4. Many bug fixes
5. More devices supported

We're also working hard on bringing built in free VPN, which we have available only on PC at the moment to Android and it should be ready for the next release (beta 2.1) which is a due soon.

The addition of Chromecast is certainly interesting, as it means you can now quickly "cast" 1080p movies to the big screen right from your Android-powered device.

You can get the new beta here.

Have no idea how I'm supposed to install this on my phone, but that's cool that it's available.
