SVT PlaySwedish public broadcaster SVT has added Chromecast support to its on-demand service SVT Play, via a new version of the SVT Play app for Android.

The updated Android app is available to download from the Google Play store and also includes an enhanced user experience for several models of Android device.

“We are improving and constantly refining the experience of SVT Play, and Chromecast has been a requested feature from our audience,” said Lena Glaser, programme director at SVT for interactive offerings and services.

SVT Play users could previously ‘cast’ programmes to Chromecast-equipped TV sets using the Chrome browser, and SVT is currently working to add native support in the SVT Play app for iOS devices.
