CyanogenMod will support Apple's AirPlay service

The CyanogenMod[1] developer Koushik Dutta, has posted a video showing AirPlay[2] Mirroring from an Android phone. Maybe it’s because he was cut off by Google, adding the same kind of features to Chromecast, he is now working on adding those features to Apple’s AirPlay service instead? Anyways, it looks cool.

CyanogenMod already has AllCast support for pushing media to Roku and DLNA-compatible hardware, and Koushik Dutta says AirPlay mirroring is “coming soon to a CyanogenMod near you.”

Watch the video here:

AirPlay together with Apple TV let you stream or mirror music, movies, TV shows, photos, and more from your iOS devices to your widescreen TV.  ↩
