Apple Music might get Chromecast support

There might be a chance for some Google-powered devices to get Apple Music support. 9to5Google discovered multiple lines of code in the Apple Music’s Android app that suggests it could get Chromecast support. Some of these lines of code were added through recent updates. While there is no guarantee this would be a feature, it is a possibility. Apple has previously said it wants its services to be as widely available as possible, so perhaps this is a step in that direction.

New Chromecast gets leaked after Best Buy accidentally sells a customer the new product

Well, we can now confirm that a new Chromecast is coming our way, too. Google has its upcoming fall hardware event on October 9th and while we know way too much about the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, we haven’t heard much about the other products we can expect. It’s not exactly a surprise that Google is updating the Chromecast now but it has been leaked in a surprising manner. Best Buy sold the unannounced device to a customer who just picked it up off the shelf. The customer, who goes by GroveStreetHomie on Reddit, took a photo of the device and recounts how it didn’t even show up in Best Buy’s system but the cashier rang it up under a listing for an older Chromecast. You can see the two products side by side above.

Chromecast will now let you skip intros on Netflix

If you use a Chromecast to stream Netflix on your TV, it wasn’t possible to skip through intros when you were binge-watching. That’s just changed. Android Police reports users seeing a new Skip Intro option at the bottom of the controller interface on your phone app. If you’re on Android this should be showing up, but as The Verge pointed out, users on iOS don’t seem to have this functionality just yet.
