In a statement by Google,
 
"At Google I/O, we announced our new Google Cast SDK. This new SDK focuses on making development for Cast quicker, more reliable, and easier to maintain. We’ve introduced full state management that helps you implement the right abstraction between your app and Google Cast. We’ve also delivered a full Cast user experience, matching the Google Cast design checklist."
 
At the Google Developers website, the SDK is now available for Android and iOS Senders, and you can find the full documentation at the site. For a variety of platforms and codelab tutorials for both Android and iOS also available at Google’s site, there’s also a slew of sample apps. An interesting feature known as customizable Expanded Controller and adding customization to the Mini Controller to help accelerate development even further will be coming in the next few months.
 
In order to extend the mobile experience to the most beautiful screens and speakers in the home, Google Cast makes it easy for developers.
