Hulu Plus Updated With Support For Chromecast On iPhone And iPod touch
Earlier this month, Hulu Plus, the official iOS app of Hulu's subscription-based video streaming service, was updated with support for Chromecast on iPad. Now, the app has been updated with support for Chromecast for iPhone and iPod touch. As a result, with the newly updated Hulu Plus app, you can now tap the Cast button to easily “cast” your favorite TV shows and movies on Chromecast from your iPhone and iPod touch as well as from your iPad. In a new blog post, Hulu explains:
The Hulu Plus integration with Chromecast will convert your app into a custom remote letting you control video on your Chromecast connected TVs, while allowing you to browse the Hulu Plus app directly from your iPhone.If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. The new version of Hulu Plus is available now in the App Store for free. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 5.0 or later. Note, though, that the app's Chromecast integration works only on iOS 6.0 or later. Chromecast is a digital media streaming dongle developed by Google. The device was launched last July by the tech giant with support for YouTube and Netflix mirroring via tab casting (i.e., streaming the content of a Chrome browser tab to a television) and through the services' official iOS apps.
