Google unveiled Chromecast , a device that looks set to rival Apple TV.
Google announced their new Chromecast device, a very small stick thing that plugs into your TV and allows you to play videos or music on your TV. It costs $35, and if you’re a Netflix subscriber you will get credited 3 months free, bringing the price essentially down to $11.00 so people are very excited about it.
Google Chromecast, essentially bit more than an HDMI dongle, is Google’s first foray into the media streaming market, and it works in some way to Apple TV and the firm’s Airplay technology.
Google showed off the Chromecast dongle, which measures little more than 2 inches, at an event in San Francisco . They explained, With Google Chromecast, all you have to really do is plug it into any HDMI input on your Television, sync to your home WiFi network, and you’re ready to go . It simply disappears behind your TV.
Once Chromecast is plugged in, if you want to watch Youtube on your TV, you simply go to the same Youtube app on your laptop or tablet and press the Chromecast button to play it on your TV.
Google boasts that unlike Apple TV and Apple’s Airplay technology, Chromecast works in multiple operating systems, such as, Windows iOS, and Mac OS X . This was demonstrated using Netflix on an iPhone, an app that supports the chromecast” button to fire the footage onto the TV.
Also unlike Apple’s Airplay technology, users can continue to use their tablets and phones for browsing the web and sending emails while streaming to their TVs.
As well as enabling users to stream House of Cards from their phone to their TV, Chromecast also supports music playback and tabs within the Chrome browser, so you can share an open webpage with your television.
Google Chromecast is available in the US for just $35.
