[dropcap size=dropcap-big]G[/dropcap]oogle Chromecast is a HDMI streaming media device that just came out on the market a few weeks ago.
This device is truly awesome and it makes it super easy to enjoy online videos and music on your television by using your Wi-Fi. In this article we are going to be talking about the great aspects of this neat little device and how getting one can be very worthwhile.
What is Chromecast exactly?
Chromecast is a two inch device that costs about $35.00 and is shaped as a thumb and it connects to your television through the HDMI port. You then can control the Chromecast from your iPad, iPhone, iPod, Android phone, laptop, or tablet using a Wi-Fi signal. Some of the different websites you can stream movies, music, and television shows from are Netflix, YouTube, Google Play Movies, Hulu, Hulu Plus, and any other online streaming you can think of.
You no longer are limited too watching a movie on your laptop or tablet; you can watch them all on your big television. Chromecast does not come with a remote control because you do not need one. You can browse by using whatever device you are connected too, and you can even adjust the volume up or down as you see fit. Chromecast is so easy to use, and it only takes three steps to get started. First, you plug in your Chromecast, and then connect to your Wi-Fi, and then you send a movie or show to your Chromecast, through your phone, tablet, or laptop.
What else is so great about Chromecast?
One of the best features about Google Chromecast is the ability to still your device any way you want too even while streaming a movie to your television. Many other products such as Apple TV or even using your video game console system to stream will not let you use the device for anything else while using it.
Now you can surf the web, do work, even give your child your tablet to you use, all while watching a movie on your television that is being streamed from it. This is what I believe is the best thing about Google Chromecast, having the ability to use your handheld device while still watching a movie or television show on your big television.
Another great feature is that even if you connect say Netflix using your mobile phone and you stop the movie to and come back to it later; you can connect to another device and still have the movie start at the same place. An example of this would be if you stream a movie using your iPad, and then stop it for a few hours, you can then start the movie back up in the same exact spot as you left it using another device such as an android phone. The Chromecast will remember exactly where it left off.
So there you have it, the Google Chromecast device is a great way for you to watch all the movies and television shows you love, now easier than even on your big television. I hope you will look further into this great little device!
