Chromecast is a flashdrive looking entertainment unit to enjoy your favorite online entertainment on your HDTV—movies, TV shows, videos, music and more from Netflix, YouTube, Google Play, and Chrome.
The gap from internet to TV is realized with this easy plug-n-play device that is set to rival Apple's AirPlay. Mobile Apple devices have been able to stream to TVs for a while through AirPlay, and now Google is entering the arena with Chromecast.
Chromecast works with devices you already own, including Android tablets and smartphones, iPhones, iPads, Chrome for Mac and Chrome for Windows. Browse for what to watch, control playback, and adjust volume using your device. It's extremely compatible and as easy to use as plugging in a table lamp and turning the switch to on.
There are 3 steps to use Chromecast:
Step 1: Plug Chromecast into any HDTV
Step 2: Connect it to WI-FI
Step 3: Send videos and more from your smartphone, tablet or laptop to your TV with the press of a button.
There is no remote, no set-top box, just your preferred device and the Chromecast HDMI stick in your HDTV to control the programming you want to watch, streaming from your tablet or phone.
For only $35, Chromecast is a device worth taking a look at. For more information visit http://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/devices/chromecast
