Google’s dongle-based media player which plugs into your TV’s HDMI port and allows you to “cast” video, photos, music and more from your phone or computer to your television’s big screen. The Vimeo integration is initially being made available only via the company’s newly updated iOS application, but we’re told the company plans to make similar functionality available in the coming months via Android, as well.
On Android App a Vimeo spokesperson tells us that it’s largely down to “bandwidth”
— the company has a relatively small mobile development team. However, the iOS-first approach is indicative of the company’s user base; it seems Android lags behind iOS for Vimeo. No timescale has been given for Android support, but we are reliably informed that Vimeo will be shifting attention to Android “in the coming months.”
Android users can still leverage Chromecast with Vimeo using the dongle’s built-in “cast screen” feature that mirrors your mobile screen. This is only compatible with some Android tablets and phones, though many of the most popular ones are supported.
