It’s not just the iOS version of BBC iPlayer that has been updated, the Android version has been updated as well. The Android version gets the same Chromecast resume features as the iOS version which means you can watch a TV shows on your TV via Chromecast and then come back to your Android device and continue watching. Also there are the usual bug fixes in the update.
– We’ve improved how you resume programmes on Chromecast: now if you are casting to your TV and return to the app you will be able to pick up where you left off.
– Radio users will now be directed to the BBC iPlayer Radio app where they will experience the best of BBC Radio in an app tailored to that experience. Users on older devices will be directed to the iPlayer Radio website.
We’ve also included a number of bug fixes.
