Developers using Google Cast were left with a lot of blind spots when it came to user behavior. Now, the company is introducing a new visualization tool in the Google Cast Developer Console.
It’s fairly robust, too. Google is tracking several points of interest — how many devices have launched an application, sessions and average playback time — with options for viewing them by region, sender platforms or total.
“The most awesome stage”
Last year, Facebook's VP of Design thought the TNW Conference main stage was the best she'd ever been on.
Each tab can be viewed in seven, 14 or 28-day rolling totals. If you want a more detailed look, there’s also a daily usage view.
As Cast becomes useful for more devices and within more apps, this developer console view is a timely addition from Google.
