Chromecast Support to Sony Apps

Been trying to find info on Chromecast support on Sony Apps and there is little or no info at all.

Are you planning to do it? or is it going to be another reason to move from Sony brand?

Re: Chromecast Support to Sony Apps

Which other brands have their own apps that work with chromecast, I thought only Google apps could work with chromecast.

It'll be wise to contact Google directly regarding this

also in the mean time you can use Google Play Music.

Re: Chromecast Support to Sony Apps

Hi!

This quote is written at the end of the web site @uliwooly suggested:

"Chromecast is compatible with WiFi-enabled Android 2.3+ smartphones and tablets;"

What means Chromecast is compatible with DEVICES and APPs can implement it in compatible devices.

 

Chromecast support is not exclusive for Google apps as you show in the link, and, as to be able to use the features from SONY (ClearAudio+, and other drm dependant features) you have to use SONY apps, it will be the sony team the one in charge of granting chromecast support to SONY apps. 

 

Just like the "throw" menu adding chromecast support would be more than perfect.

 

We can use Google Music, but then our SONY mobiles will sound and look exactly as Nexus mobile, and that's not the point.

SONY uses premium hardware and software, and users pay premium prices for that, so i hope we will hear soon something about the topic.
