Google Chromecast

Chromecast is a thumb-sized media streaming device built by Google. It plugs into the HDMI port of your TV and lets you stream movies and videos directly on your TV. You can enjoy the best of the web right on your TV. But that’s not all.

 

Easy set up

To set up your Chromecast, it’s pretty easy. Connect it to your WiFi and from your smartphone, tablet or even laptop (no matter which OS you’re using) you can control it remotely.

More than apps

Chromecast includes apps like Netflix, YouTube or Hulu Plus and many more depending on which country you live in. But additionally: when you are using the Chrome browser you can, at any time, select the cast tab on the top right of your browser. It will send the opened tab directly to your TV.

Thus, Chromecast enables you to open anything from the internet directly on your TV.

There is more to it than streaming videos

But not only can you use this little device to stream movies and other videos, it also allows you to play music through your home entertainment system using your smartphone for example as a remote.

Chromecast doesn’t stream anything from your phone and drain your battery, but actually streams from the internet through the WiFi connection. It’s also affordable. $35 in the US and £30 for you guys in the UK.

As the SDK is public and Chromecast released slowly but steadily internationally, it’s likely that there will be even more apps appearing very soon.
