What is Chromecast?
Google Chromecast is a streaming media device that allows you to wirelessly stream your favorite entertainment from your phone, tablet or laptop to your TV. For many people, a streaming device is the first step toward adding smart home technology that makes their lives more automated and convenient. This small, circular device plugs into an HDMI port on your HD TV, and then pairs to your iOS or Android device. Download digital media apps to your smartphone and use their interfaces as alternatives to a physical remote control. You can also cast content that lives on your smartphone, tablet, laptop or Chromebook — such as photos, videos and content from websites — onto a bigger screen for everyone to enjoy. For audio enjoyment, you can stream digital music and podcasts from subscription services like Spotify and Pandora. Depending on where you live, you may also be able to access local stations live.
Getting the most out of your Chromecast.
Before you decide on a Google streaming device, you’ll want to make sure you have a fast, reliable Wi-Fi connection to get a stable, seamless viewing and listening experience. If your current home network is inconsistent, consider adding a wireless router to support your system. You might also benefit from having a Wi-Fi extender if you have TVs in different rooms of your house. If you have a 4K UHD TV, the Chromecast with Google TV is great for displaying highly detailed images on your screen. Plus, you can control your Chromecast device with just your voice when you pair it with compatible smart speakers featuring a digital voice assistant. With so many possibilities, you’ll wonder how you lived without your versatile Chromecast streaming device as part of your Google Home setup.
