Google’s Chromecast is on its way to becoming your ultimate tool for entertaining at home. Google announced today that 10 new apps have made their way to the Chromecast entertainment suite, most notably leading music video site Vevo and music streaming service Songza. Google makes this announcement just in time for the holidays, with many people deciding between gadgets that allow them to stream online content onto their big-screen TVs and smart TVs that connect to the internet themselves.

The eight other apps added to Chromecast include:

  • Red Bull.TV for streaming sports, music, and lifestyle programming
  • PostTV, programming created by the Washington Post
  • Viki, for streaming programming from Korea, Taiwan, Japan and more
  • Revision3, a free independent online video service
  • BeyondPod, a podcast manager
  • Plex, Avia and RealPlayer Cloud for streaming your personal media to your TV

Chromecast is a small, affordable device that plugs into your TV and connects to your Wi-Fi so you can stream online content from services like Netflix and Hulu. Playback is controlled through smartphones and tablets. Chromecast is Google’s answer to the Apple TV and other smart TVs on the line.
