Opera has recently added Chromecast support to the Developer Build of their web browser. According to Opera’s official blog:
– today, we are also offering Chromecast finally working in this developer version. Specifically, when you install the Google Cast extension from the store and have the special device attached to your display and operating in the same Wi-Fi network, the device should be detected and sending links should work.
-Maciej Kocemba, Project Manager for Opera Computers
Opera has supported Chrome extensions for some time now. But, Google Cast has yet to receive support. And, to the best of my knowledge does not work in the current stable channel of the web browser. The integration of Casting support into Opera is just another good indicator of Chrome OS’s universal appeal to users of all platforms. I look forward to testing out the Developer version of this web browser. I will keep you up to date on my results as well as when it moves to the stable channel release.
If you are interested in testing out the Developer version of Opera, you can download it here for Windows. Keep in mind, just like Chrome, the developer version may contain bugs and errors. In addition, the next step will be the Beta channel before release to the stable version. Meaning it could be months before Casting support is “official”. But it’s great to see these two playing well together. Open Source Software for the win!
