(Pocket-lint) - Cloud storage company Bitcasa has added native Google Chromecast support to its Android application, enabling you to stream video and pictures stored in your cloud locker to your TV via the dongle.

The updated Android app is available from Google Play now and features the Chromecast button with filetypes you can send to the screen.


"With native Chromecast support, parents can now capture a baby's first steps on a mobile, save it directly to the Bitcasa app, then re-live the moment on their TV with friends and family," said Bitcasa CEO, Brian Taptich.

"This will also enable users to consume videos, music and images on their mobile in lean-back mode, as well as in a group setting. This is another step in Bitcasa's mission to make files easily accessible on any device, anywhere."
