Deliver an incredible experience from your smartphone to your TV.
Chromecast is an $35 HDMI dongle that allows its users to cast their favorite entertainment from any smartphone, tablet or computer, directly to the TV. Chromecast has revolutionized the way we consume media entertainment: you can stream videos, pictures or music, or you can develop games that will use the TV as the main screen, and your devices as the controllers. Since its announcement during the Google I/O 2013, more and more apps have been published supporting Chromecast, such as Netflix, ESPN, HBO Go or Pandora.
With more and more companies, studios and developers supporting this technology, it is crucial that our apps provide an exceptional and simple experience, and that's what this talk will try to cover: from a coding point of view, I will explain how to integrate the Chromecast technology in an Android application; from a design and UX perspective, I'll show the fundamentals that every media app should implement in order to succeed.
