How great is technology today? There are so many ways to get your favorite music, videos and movies sent right to you. But what happens when you have all the technology in your hand and not on your living room wall? Is your TV not smart enough to keep up? Google Chromecast has now made it possible to stream on non-smart TVs. Now you can watch movies, shows, live TV, YouTube, and photos streaming on your TV from all of your family’s devices.
Stream from your phone to TV
Plug the Google Chromecast into the HDMI port on your TV and to power and stream your favorite entertainment right from your phone with just a tap. Watch shows, listen to playlists, and more. And while streaming, you can still use your phone as you normally do. This little device makes all televisions smart devices. It’s Google’s answer to the streaming device. It’s amazing and having this technology will save people $1,000’s.
Works with the streaming apps you know and love
My kids will literally spend hours on apps such as YouTube, Netflix and Hulu. As a mom, I’d feel so much better if they didn’t strain their eyes on a small screen when they are at home. Google has now made it possible to enjoy TV shows, movies, videos, songs, games, sports and more from over 2000 apps like Netflix, YouTube, YouTube TV, and HBO NOW.
Start streaming with just your voice
Just say what you want to watch from compatible apps and control your TV hands-free, with Chromecast and Google Home working seamlessly together. For example, “Ok Google, play Stranger Things from Netflix on my living room TV.”
Can it get any easier? I bet Google will listen better than my kids any day of the week. Seriously, how many times do I have to remind my teenage son to take out the garbage?
Upgrade your TV for less
How many televisions do you have in your home? If you’re like me and have two older teenagers, you probably have at least four televisions. I have one in my bedroom, one in the living room and one in each kid’s bedroom. My son is a gamer, my daughter loves documentaries about the ocean and no one likes the shows my husband loves. Expand your home entertainment without buying a new TV. It’s so affordable you can get one for every TV in the house.
High-speed wireless connectivity
Most everyone has wifi in their homes. The Google Chromecast connects easily to your home wifi and you’re good to go. Built-in Wi-Fi connects to the internet through your wireless home network (wireless router required and sold separately). I already have the router, so the connection is so easy.
Compatible with your existing HDTV
TheGoogle Chromecast easily connects to high-definition televisions with HDMI cconnectivity. Any television manufacturered since 2000 should have the HDMI connection. The device plugs into it and after connecting it to the home’s wifi connection, your family will fight over what to watch first!
If your television works perfect but lacks the smartness factor, check out Google Chromecast. You’ll upgrade without having to contribute to your carbon footprint.
