I recently stumbled across Chromecast from Google which is slightly surprising as I’m meant to be into technology! I probably missed it as I tend to drift towards Apple products and own a number of Apple TV’s.
What is Chromecast?
“Chromecast is a thumb-sized media streaming device that plugs into the HDMI port on your TV. You set it up with a simple mobile app, then send your favorite online shows, movies and more to your TV using your smartphone, tablet or laptop.”
Chromecast was released in the US sometime ago but has only just made its way across the pond to Europe a couple of weeks ago. Despite the delay Google’s little streaming device is proving to be hugely popular! I spoke to a ‘twitter contact’ yesterday who has just brought his second. With a price tag of £30 this is a piece of cheap tech that is simply worth trying!
Dixon’s Retail has recently revealed that is sold a Chromecast every 4.5 seconds on the launch day!
