Brace yourself for a flood of new Chromecast apps, as Google finally frees developers to do what they like with its TV-streaming device.

On Monday, Google announced the long-awaited release of its Google Cast Software Development Kit, a set of tools that allow developers to officially support the popular Chromecast TV streaming device. 

Chromecast, a TV streaming device launched last summer, only had 14 streaming sources prior to this announcement, including Netflix, Hulu, HBO GO and Pandora. Expect that number to expand greatly on the heels of this announcement. For more information, visit "Google's Chromecast Is Open To All, So Bring On The Streaming Apps."
