Cast your favorite entertainment from your phone straight to your TV- Google
Google’s September 29th press event wasn’t only about hot new Nexus devices, as the company also announced version 2 of its Chromecast product. Chromecast is a media streaming device that plugs into the HDMI port on your TV. Simply use your mobile device and the TV you already own to cast your favorite TV shows, movies, music, sports, games and more. Chromecast works with iPhone, iPad, Android phone and tablet, Mac and Windows laptop, and Chromebook. With the updated app, you can now interact with photos the same way you would with YouTube. With YouTube, you can start streaming a video and conveniently, add videos or navigate out of YouTube and send a message or do anything with your phone and unless you pause or stop the casting video, it will continue to play on your big screen TV.
