French SVoD service CanalPlay is launching a new version of its mobile application for all iOS and Android screens.

The CanalPlay app provides a new more fluid and intuitive handling experience with a greater speed of access to content. It also incorporates a system of recommendation, and in the coming weeks will offer a ‘Kids’ secure space.

The initiative will see the app became one of the first in France to integrate the Google Chromecast Dongle. With this feature, customers can start playing a programme on their smartphone or tablet before ‘launching’ it on the TV screen .
