After kicking the tires and making adjustments based on customer feedback, we're happy to announce that this functionality is now available to all StreamSpot customers. Now, their viewers can watch live-streamed and on-demand broadcasts through their Google Chromecast device.

Read on to learn the popularity of Google Chromecast device sales, and how easy it is for our customers to make this feature available to their viewing audience.

As reported in late 2015, Google Chromecast device sales outsold other popular streaming devices in Q3. What's not to love? Chromecast is inexpensive, easy to use, and best of all, compatible with both iOS and Android devices. Therefore, we recognized the high likelihood our customers' viewers are using this device to stream shows and other media onto their TV's and similar devices! We knew we had to not only make the Chromecast integration available, but make it easy to use for both our customers and their viewers.

To make the Chromecast functionality accessible to their viewers, StreamSpot customers must utilize 1) the new StreamSpot player and 2) activate the Chromecast integration within the StreamSpot player builder. Viewers will then see the Chromecast icon on the player when their Chromecast device is active.

Ready to get started? We've created a helpful Knowledgebase article, so our customers and their viewers can easily understand how to access this powerful integration and start watching broadcasts using their Google Chromecast device.
