Google Unveils Chromecast HDMI Dongle for Wirelessly Streaming Video to Your HDTV

Posted by · 23282 views · Translate
Google has unveiled Chromecast a $35 dongle that connects to your HDTV to enable wireless streaming of video and other web content from a variety of devices.

To help make it easy to bring your favorite online entertainment to the biggest screen in your house—the TV—we’re introducing Chromecast. Chromecast is a small and affordable ($35) device that you simply plug in to your high-definition (HD) TV and it allows you to use your phone, tablet or laptop to "cast" online content to your TV screen. It works with Netflix, YouTube, Google Play Movies & TV, and Google Play Music, with more apps like Pandora coming soon. With Chromecast, we wanted to create an easy solution that works for everyone, for every TV in the house.

Once your Chromecast is set up, you can use your phone, tablet or laptop to browse and cast content to your TV, play and pause, control the volume, and more. But unlike other streaming solutions, you can still multitask—send emails or surf the web—while enjoying what’s on the TV screen. It works across platforms—Android tablets and smartphones, iPhones, iPads, Chrome for Mac and Windows (more to come), so your personal device is also now your remote control.

Cast the web to your TV
In addition to apps like Netflix, you can use Chromecast to bring a broad range of content available on the web to your big screen, thanks to a new feature in the Chrome browser that allows you to project any browser tab to your TV. From sharing your family photos to enjoying a video clip from your favorite news site, it’s as simple as pressing a button. This feature is launching in beta, but we’re excited for people to try it out and give us their feedback.

Google has also announced a Google Cast SDK preview for developers that will allow developers to build consistent, intuitive multi-screen experiences across mobile devices and TVs. Developers can learn more about the SDK here.

I absolutely cannot stand reading comments like yours. Regardless of whether you're an Apple or Android fan, I hate whenever stupid nerds, like yourself, thinks they're so hilarious because they change words like Nexus into Wreckus. Are you kidding me?! That's the dumbest shit I've ever heard of!! You'd better believe when I see you at the gates, you will immediately be banished to Hell for all of eternity with all of the other faggots!!!

You're more of a know it all, and their is a damn good reason many people are saying this and you sir, this is copying, you buy the companies product to hook up to your tv, then use your device on it, and here's the reason you act like a know it all, 1. apple tv came first years ago, 2.who else do you think has said "someone copied apple". Do you go to apples page and look right there in the damn comments, it's right there. For once, compare to what company makes and how similar it is. FYI I am not a nerd, I may know apple and yes, I compared their products but look, just because I know similar things about how products look the same even a little doesn't make me a nerd, especially the way I look, so you don't know a fuck about me, you need to learn more before trying to prove me wrong and all this above is fucking proof, got it!
