BitTorrent, meet Chromecast: Vuze has added Google Cast support to its Android torrent client, making it possible to beam a media file to the TV right after a download has finished. To my knowledge, this is the first time anyone has integrated cast capability into a BitTorrent app, and it should make the life of Vuze users that also own a Chromecast adapter or one of Google’s new Nexus players a little easier. However, the feature isn’t available for Vuze’s desktop client, because Google hasn’t released a cast SDK for native desktop apps yet.
