If you have the Cartoon Network Android app, then you might be interested in knowing that the app was just updated. In this new app update, we see that there is finally Google Chromecast support, which has been a feature people have been clamoring for. Read on to learn more about the new Cartoon Network Android app update, including more on the Chromecast support.
Cartoon Network Android App Update Includes Chromecast Support
It is about time that the Cartoon Network Android app gets updated to support Google Chromecast. The Chromecast support has been something that people have been asking about for a long time. It seems that the developers behind the Cartoon Network Android app heard the voice of the people since we finally see this feature in the new version.
The biggest problem when it comes to things like this happening is that it takes a while for various platforms to become available. The distributors of the content like to focus on the main platforms, and then after a while will let the content be distributed to other platforms like Chromecast.
When it comes to content, Turner Broadcasting, which owns Cartoon Network, has long been one of the most stingy when it comes to distribution. Turner Broadcasting is associated with Time Warner and both of these companies are known to not really be as supportive or open about content distribution. If you have the Cartoon Network app but you do not have a cable provider, you will notice that the content available on the app is much smaller.
If you want to get the most out of your Cartoon Network Android app, you need to have it synced up with your cable provider. This will allow you to get all of the content on the Android app, as opposed to the limited content found just using the standalone app.
Cartoon Network Android App Update Details
While there are not that many changes with the new Cartoon Network Android app update, the Chromecast support alone is enough of a reason to update your app. If you want to update to the new version, you will find that the Chromecast support works as great as you would imagine.
That means there is nothing too fancy about it. You will see the icon within the streaming window on the Cartoon Network Android app, and you click that and it will bring up the compatible devices. From there, you will be able to click on Chromecast, and then begin streaming right to your Chromecast device.
The only downside here is that the quality of the content does not really change in terms of the video resolution. If you are watching older cartoons, then you know that they are of much lower quality than the high-definition we are used to these days. Just because there is Chromecast support does not mean that these lower-definition shows will automatically look amazing. There is no change when it comes to those lower-quality shows, so they will look the same regardless of whether you have it on your television or your Android device.
Even though the older shows will not look any better or different, it is a change for the better. A lot of people will think it is still nice to be able to cast from your Android device right to your television. This feature is definitely going to come in handy for people who enjoy watching the television shows that Cartoon Network has to offer, but did not like being forced to watch the shows only on the small screen.
If you would like to check out the new Chromecast support, you can head to Google Play Store and download the new version of the Cartoon Network app. As usual, if you already have the Cartoon Network app on your Android device, you should be seeing this update coming in the form of an OTA update.
