Adult Swim’s Android App Finally Supports Chromecast

It’s no exaggeration to say that Chromecast support was the most requested feature in the Adult Swim app. For years, many people, including myself, have lamented Google’s lack of streaming integration into the service. And now, finally, it’s here. Starting with today’s update, you can stream Adult Swim content from the app to your Chromecast, and they’ve even added a Twitch-style live chat system for specific content. This is the best news so far this year.

Just in case you didn’t know, Adult Swim is Turner Broadcasting’s Cartoon Network night-time equivalent. As the name suggests, it is geared more towards adults, showing shows such as Rick and morty, Hot streets, and Aqua Teen Hunger Force. In addition to cartoons, it also has great live action content like The Eric André show. In its simplest form, Adult Swim is the millennial irreverence distilled from each of its viewers, and living without it like a cable cutter has been terrible.

I tested the Chromecast feature, and it works just as you would expect. You select the content you want, hit the Chromecast button at the top right and you’re good to go. It works even if you don’t have cable like me. The only downside is that you can’t access all of the content like the feature film episodes section, and we have to deal with the ads. Still, it’s a small price to pay for free content.

As a cord cutter whose only desire in the TV world was the Adult Swim pay-per-view streaming service, I’m so happy right now.

The live chat system that was also added in this update also doesn’t appear to have turned into a Twitch-like anarchy, which is surprising. To use the chat, you can either log in with Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, or create an account specific to Adult Swim.

The update that adds these two new features (Chromecast support and live chat) is live on the Play at the store, but you can also download it from Mirror APK. Every human being with a smartphone should download it now; eleven different show marathons are happening as we speak, including Rick and Morty, The Eric Andre Show, Squidbillies, The Venture Bros. and ATHF.

Say goodbye to your productivity.

Alternative title: It took Adult Swim longer to add the cast to its app than it did to make a third season of Rick and Morty.
