PremiumPlay enables AirPlay streaming in apps that normally don’t support it

If you own an Apple TV, then you might be familiar with Apple’s convenient AirPlay streaming feature. With it, you can wirelessly stream content from your iOS device(s) to your Apple TV for enjoyment on the big screen; unfortunately, some apps prevent you from doing this.

Enter PremiumPlay, a new jailbreak tweak created by iOS developer Tony Kraft that enables AirPlay streaming in apps that typically wouldn’t support it.

YouTube app adds Chromecast playback controls to Lock screen, Control Center & Apple Watch

Google's official YouTube for iPhone and iPad app has picked up a trio of compelling new features in its most recent update on App Store. Bumped to version 12.03, the free of charge software adds handy Chromecast controls to Control Center and your iOS device's Lock screen, and to your wrist via Apple Watch. The playback controls only appear when you're streaming videos from Chromecast devices, smart TVs, game consoles or any other living room devices that run the YouTube app.
