With the rush of new device announcements early this month, the Chromecast slipped quietly into the background, especially after a slight controversy regarding local media streaming. But just last week, the device has gone back in stock on Google Play. The random appearance of Chromecast support for embedded YouTube players also showed fans and curious onlookers signs of life.
The Google Chromecast team today announced an update for the device. While there wasn’t really much to mention other than a kernel update, and the usual security fixes and other improvements, it’s still good to see some activity again coming from Google’s end, especially since the last update was still in August.
Other than that, Google has been pretty silent about the device and the initial furor has seemingly died down. Perhaps developers are just waiting for Google to make the next move that would further indicate the direction Google plans to take the Chromecast before taking the plunge again.
