HDMI Streaming Media Player
Pocket-friendly, Bankbook-friendly, & Easy-to-use
Many of us already enjoy video entertainment from online sources such as YouTube, Netflix and Google Play, but without a video streaming device we are not able to watch it on our Televisions. To solve this problem, Google recently unveiled a new device, Chromecast, an affordable HDMI adapter that turns any TV into a Smart TV.
Chromecast is a USB sized HDMI dongle that permits you to send anything you can search out in the Google Chrome browser to your TV. Chromecast also allows the users to run apps such as Netflix or Youtube from their phone, tablet, or laptop onto their big screen. Although there are many devices in the market capable of similar functions, Chromecast may just be the pocket-friendly, bankbook-friendly, easy-to-use and portable solution that you have been looking for.
According to Sundar Pichai, Google’s SVP of Android and Chrome, the Chromecast is doing very very well in the United States. ““We are in the millions now, and it’s growing very actively,” was his comment exactly. And Mr. Pichai didn’t stop there, he also mentioned that the Chromecast dongle would soon start to go on sale in different markets internationally. ~ AndroidHeadlines
