Google has just released an update to Chromecast, the official iOS app of its media streaming dongle of the same name.
As usual, the update delivers various bug and stability fixes.
But it’s notable in that it brings about an interface refresh for the app in line with Google’s “material design,” which, according to Google, features “bold graphics, fluid motion, and tactile surfaces.”
Chromecast joins the ever expanding pool of apps that have been updated with material design tweaks, which already includes the main Google app along with Google Maps, Play Books, Play Music, Play Movies & TV, Play Newsstand, Wallet, Authenticator, and Inbox by Gmail. Chrome, the official iOS app of Chromecast’s eponymous Web browser, is yet to be similarly updated, though.

On top of material design, the latest update to Chromecast adds native resolution support for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
As noted in its holiday promo video above, the Chromecast device is available for $35.
Chromecast for iOS received its previous major update in October, thereby gaining a new backdrop customization feature.
