29th September 2015

7digital has become the first provider of high-res playback through Google Cast, allowing users to stream music from phones and tablets to any Google Cast-enabled speaker or Chromecast connected TV. The announcement comes alongside a major update to the 7digital Music Store Android app which has a fresh look and much improved experience as well as a new catalogue of hi-res music and support for Android Auto. 

The Android app acts as an all-in-one music player and store, syncing new and previously purchased tracks from 7digital's cloud locker for streaming playback in the app. 7digital have also added support for Android Auto, which enables consumers to stream music to their Android Auto in-car infotainment system.

 "This upgrade to include Cast to our platform as well as enhancements on the Music Store app for Android marks a significant update", commented Simon Cole, CEO of 7digital. "It leads the way in providing users with both high quality audio and a truly modern music-listening experience. Our diverse partners will also benefit from improvements made across Android, iOS and web platforms, as 7digital enables new features and functionality for the services we power around the world".
