Yesterday we heard that the ability to stream media locally on the Google Chromecast device had been removed, Google released an update for the device which stopped this functionality.
Google has said that the update was not specifically designed to break the local streaming feature on their Chromecast device, you can see a statement from Google below.
We’re excited to bring more content to Chromecast and would like to support all types of apps, including those for local content. It’s still early days for the Google Cast SDK, which we just released in developer preview for early development and testing only. We expect that the SDK will continue to change before we launch out of developer preview, and want to provide a great experience for users and developers before making the SDK and additional apps more broadly available.
There are no details as yet on when this feature will return to the Google Chromecast, as soon as we get some more details we will let you guys know.
