Synology adds support for Chromecast streaming


Synology have just updated their DiskStation software which they use on their NAS solutions with support for the Google Chromecast.

Similar to the already included functionality with the DiskStation which allows you to stream the content on your NAS to the Apple TV, you are now able to send the content to a Google Chromecast in the same manner.

Not only this, but Synology are saying that “if you’re at your friend’s place, you can connect to your DiskStation back at home, and stream your movie/music collection directly to his Chromecast”.

The Chromecast support requires the latest DSM 5.0 update as well as the associated DiskStation Apps.
