    I've been using the ubuntu version for some time and, although it is not as good as "advertised", it's quite handy.
    Totally recommend it

  5. This is old news . They have been saying Chromecast support has been coming out in a few days for a month. I have been checking every three days. Hopefully the Dev team will become more dependable and stick to their promises in the future.
