The latest update to HBO Now on Android and iOS gives subscribers the ability to stream their favorite shows to their TV via a Chromecast. The new feature comes less than a month after HBO Now made its debut on Android¬†following Apple’s exclusive three-month deal.

HBO Now users can been able to stream shows to their TV using an Apple TV since the service launched back in April, but those with a Chromecast have been forced to wait. Now anyone using the Now app on both Android and iOS can connect to the $35 dongle.

Today’s update also fixes some bugs, improves performance, and adds push notifications. HBO doesn’t say what they’re for in its release notes, but presumably, they’ll alert when your favorite shows are about to start.

You can download the latest versions of the Now app now from the App Store and Google Play.
