Google released an official Chromecast app for iOS devices today, making it easier for users to set up the new $35 TV dongle, switch between multiple Chromecasts and change common network settings.
The app can be used to pair a new Chromecast with a nearby Wi-Fi network, as well as change the name assigned to the device and the network it connects to by default.
For users that own multiple Chromecasts and have them set up on the same Wi-Fi network, the app is also useful for managing which devices stream to which dongle. An area at the bottom of the screen also displays a list of supported Chromecast apps – which for now only features Netflix and YouTube.
