Solid Explorer gets Chromecast treatment, now able to stream local media

Chromecast (3)

Chromecast support is growing fast as an increasing number apps add support for Google’s little streaming device. We already have popular apps like Chrome Beta supporting Chromecast that allow you to stream content that providers may not have added support for themselves. But what about local content? There are a few options available, and Solid Explorer is the newest.

Solid Explorer is a popular file explorer app for Android, and its newest feature is a plug-in made by the app’s developers. When browsing local content on your device using Solid Explorer, you will now be able to stream it to your Chromecast using the plug-in.

The feature isn’t perfect yet, but all new Chromecast integration starts out a bit buggy. Plus, it’s free and you can give it a shot with the Solid Explorer trial (the app unlocker costs $1.99). Tell us how what you think of it in the comments!
