Free continues to regularly update its new OQEE TV interface. Available only on the Freebox Pop and Freebox Delta, this app provides free access on a second screen to all the channels offered by the operator, i.e. nearly 550 if you include the free and paid channels accessible via the operator’s bouquets.
Earlier this week, the French company deployed a new version of its app on iOS, integrating Chromecast and the Picture-in-Picture function. And justly, it’s the turn of Android users to welcome this update on their respective smartphone and tabletprovided you run Android 7.1 minimum.
Chromecast and Picture-in-Picture mode are coming to OQEE TV
As said before, two important new features are on the program. First, the application now offers a Chromecast functionality, useful for streaming your content to your compatible TV. In addition, the app finally has the mode Picture-in-Picture. This popular mode allows users to simply use other applications while continuing to watch your programs. Let’s finish then for the correction of a bug concerning the display of the duration of the recordings.
Note that this update will be rolled out gradually, so you may not have immediate access to it. As a reminder, Free recently released another update for the OQEE TV Android application. It was content to bring only one novelty, namely “dynamic adaptation of video quality”.
