Mountain View, Calif. April 22, 2014
Bitcasa, the company that makes storage simple, today announced Chromecast support in its latest Android release.
The updated Android app will support Chromecast streaming and allow users to stream digital content from their Bitcasa app directly to their TV, extending Bitcasa's commitment to making users' digital content more accessible.
"With native Chromecast support, parents can now capture a baby's first steps on a mobile, save it directly to the Bitcasa app, then re-live the moment on their TV with friends and family," says Bitcasa CEO, Brian Taptich. "This will also enable users to consume videos, music and images on their mobile in 'lean-back' mode, as well as in a group setting. This is another step in Bitcasa's mission to make files easily accessible on any device, anywhere."
The latest update places Bitcasa among brands such as HBO, YouTube, Hulu, Pandora and Netflix as a service that supports Chromecast streaming.
Bitcasa also plans to extend Chromecast support to additional mobile and Web apps, enabling all users to turn their Bitcasa accounts into a cloud-based media center for all screens - mobile, desktop and TV.
