Google is slowly pushing out yet another OTA update for its TV dongle, the Chromecast. Updating the device to build 13300, it’s mostly a routine maintenance release, although Google says we should see a bit more “robustness.” Here’s the full changelog:
- Kernel update
- Security fixes
- Robustness improvements
- Security enhancements
Developers and users alike are still waiting patiently for Google to take the Chromecast SDK out of beta, so that apps like PocketCasts can start casting all the things.
To find out if your Chromecast has been updated yet, simply open the Chromecast app on your Android phone or tablet, and select your Chromecast from the list. One the app connects to your Chromecast, you’ll see the settings screen, where you can change the name, update WiFi settings and time zone, and change your privacy settings. The IP address of your Chromecast is also displayed, and under that is the build number.
There’s no “update” button that you can press over and over again, so if you’re still on an older build, just be patient – Google will get to you when Google gets to you.[Google]
