Give your television a modern makeover by plugging in the 2nd Generation Google Chromecast. The pocket-sized black device blends in effortlessly with your TV and other hardware. This plug-in streaming device easily installs into your TV’s HDMI port for simple wireless access to streaming movies, television shows, and even games. There are over 200,000 movies and TV episodes to select from with the Chromecast, and 30 million songs to listen to via music applications like Pandora. Compatible with a variety of applications, the Chromecast works via your Apple or Android device to bring you the entertainment you desire without glitches or using up your battery power. Transform your iPhone into your TV’s remote control and select what you want to watch or do, and let the Chromecast do the rest. Your phone can control the streamer from anywhere you are in your home using the Cast button to ‘mirror’ what’s on your phone to your TV screen. Some apps you can use vary, from music-listening apps like Spotify to streaming services like Hulu along with TV networks like HBO and the CW. If you’re already a subscriber to some popular apps, you don’t even need to sign in to use them; simply launch them from the app on your phone and watch instantly. Along with paid, subscription-based apps, there are also 1000s of free applications to stream from. You can also project anything from your phone or tablet to your TV, such as images from your Google Photos account or Facebook, or share content from your Internet browser, and if you have a Google Home device, you can use voice controls to find the media and entertainment you want to play, making the Chromecast even easier to use, whether you’re searching for a specific photo, TV episode, or YouTube video.
