Google announced yet more apps that are now supporting its $35 Chromecast streaming device. These are some significant ones that should only serve to help sales for the holidays (which are bound to be pretty good already).

The device will now support apps from Comedy Central, Sesame Street, and Nickelodeon. Google says in a brief post on the Chrome blog:

Chromecast is adding seven more great apps to your casting queue. Get bigger laughs with The Daily Show on Comedy Central, learn with Elmo on Sesame Street Go, or cast Nickelodeon and let Spongebob keep your family entertained. And, no matter how far you travel this winter, stay connected with TuneIn for international radio stations and millions of podcasts. With EPIX, YuppTV and Encore also casting, you have a full lineup of shows, sports, games and movies to last throughout the holiday season.

Chromecast is frequently gaining support from more and more apps as Google itself continues to improve it with additional functionality. For example, a few days ago, Google announced Google Drive support on Chrome OS, enabling users to cast media files stored with their Google accounts.

The device is also getting better for more Android devices as the list of those supporting screen mirroring continues to expand.

Earlier this month, Google announced a set of new "family-friendly" games for Chromecast, as well as support from Showtime and Starz.
