Sophisticated YouTube app Tubecast has been updated to version 2.2 with some great new features.

The headline feature is a new Picture in Picture feature in the app which means you can start a video then navigate to other pages in the app, and the video will continue to play in a small window in the bottom corner of the page (see screen shot above).

The app will also now play the audio of a video in the background when you navigate away from the app, and features some UI and performance improvements.

The app’s main feature is of course having the ability broadcast video to a Google Chromecast, and also via DLNA.

imageThe app is free, but offer a limited number of “casts” (around 20) before you have to pay $1.99.
