Slingbox And Twitch Are Both Finally Compatible With Chromecast

And you never thought the day would come. Both Sling and Twitch are now able to cast their video streams to a Chromecast receiver. Best yet, it seems it was worth the wait. Both apps have been updated to provide a natural second screen experience.

While the Slingapp is casting live TV, the screen on the mobile device controls playback like a traditional remote control. Likewise, when connected to a Chromecast device, the Twitch mobile app serves up a chat functionality and allows the user to scan for another stream to watch or control playback of the current video content.

Chromecast with the Slingplayer app work with the iPhone, iPad and Android, with Android tablet support coming very soon. The Twitch app works with the iPhone, iPad and Android phones and tablets.
