Google Chromecast devices have proven to be tremendously popular, and Airfoil supports them all, including the Google Chromecast Audio, as well as both the current Google Chromecast Video and the original (stick-shaped) model. There are also many televisions and stereos which support the Google Cast streaming protocol, and Airfoil works great with those as well.
Airfoil can also send to multiple devices, all in sync! Whether your devices use Google Cast, AirPlay, Bluetooth, or any combination, Airfoil can stream to them all. With this new version, you can get the party rocking with more devices than ever before.
We've also updated Airfoil Satellite for Mac, a free companion to Airfoil. Airfoil Satellite turns any Mac into an audio receiver for Airfoil, so you can stream from one computer to another. Now, it's AppleScriptable, and offers global hotkeys for remote playback control.
There are many more small improvements to Airfoil, but the Chromecast support is the real star. After hundreds of user requests, and many months of work, we're thrilled to be able to provide this much-desired feature in a free update to Airfoil 5.
