**In-app purchase of $4.99 gives you Chromecast support, casting to Apple TV, Roku, WebOS and UPnP/DLNA enabled devices, access to Dropbox, support for themes and an ad-free interface.**
It’s been almost a year since Avia’s Chromecast release. Chromecast has been a success for Avia, to say the least. To add to the sweetness, we’re now supporting casting to Apple TV, Roku and WebOS devices along with an updated UI, icons and themes. Avia 7.2 also offers overall stability improvements. Here’s what to expect in 7.2:
- New icons throughout the app
- Updated UI
- Casting to Apple TV
- Casting to Roku devices
- Casting to WebOS enabled TVs
And of course, Avia still allows you to:
- Play and manage media stored on your Android device, in the cloud or from these devices: Facebook / Dropbox / Google+ Photos (Picasa) / Network Attached Storage (NAS) / Windows Media Player (WMP) / Serviio / Plex / Subsonic / PC / Mac / Other Android Devices
Finally, here are a few pieces of advice to get the most out of Avia:
- To cast to Roku devices, please install the Avia for Roku channel that will appear on your Roku screen.
- Make sure your Android device and device you want to cast to, e.g. Chromecast, are using the same Wi-Fi network.
- When using Avia to access media from other devices, they must have UPnP/DLNA serving enabled.
- When casting from Avia, files MUST be compatible with the receiving device. Many devices have fewer compatible codecs than a home computer. Please review your media formats with the specifications of your devices before attempting to cast. (Example: Chromecast is not compatible with .AVI files.)
