Google Chromecast updated to build 12940 – Includes discovery and stability improvements

Google Chromecast Update

Google is pushing out a new update for their Chromecast streaming device. Today’s OTA update brings the Chromecast to software build 12940 and arrives without users needing to do anything to receive it. The update is rolling out over time, so be patient if you haven’t received it yet.

Software version 12940 brings “Better discovery of Chromecast devices” and “Improved Google Play Movies stability.” Two welcome additions to the Chromecast in my opinion. The Chromecast news doesn’t stop there though. Google has also announced that they have published version 1.0.1 of the Google Cast SDK preview. This new version includes new libraries for Android and iOS developers and bug fixes.
