While Google’s recently launched Chromecast dongle was compatible within the U.S., global customers weren’t able to make full use of it as the accompanying app wasn’t supported elsewhere. But it has now come to notice that these restrictions might have been lifted by Google, thus allowing customers to download the app outside the U.S. as well. This is very good news for customers who imported a Chromecast dongle to their home region. However, while the app is available everywhere now, the dongle still remains an exclusive in the U.S. But thanks to third party retailers like Amazon, the dongle has reached every corner of the world.
With the availability of the app extended to other regions, Google could be possibly planning to launch the Chromecast dongle on a wider scale as well. If you’re new to the idea of Chromecast, it is basically a media streaming device which connects to a television through HDMI. Users can stream content using the Chrome browser on their computers or dedicated apps on their mobile devices (Android or iOS).
