This week for “Wireless Wednesday”, we are taking a closer look at the new Google streaming device for the TV, the Chromecast. See the @mashable article pasted below to learn more–
Google has announced a brand new streaming accessory — the Chromecast — that makes it easy to bring web content to the TV.
At first blush, the Chromecast looks like the spiritual successor to the ill-fated Nexus Q. The Chromecast is an HDMI dongle that communicates with video and audio apps — including YouTube, Netflix and Pandora — running on Android or iOS, and transfers that content to your big screen HDTV.
Users can then control content on the big screen using apps on their phones or tablets. Users can also “cast” content from the Chrome browser to the Chromecast. There’s also beta support for bringing any Chrome tab to the Chromecast.
Right now, the Chromecast will support:
- Google Play
- Google Music
- Chrome for Windows, Mac and Chroembook Pixel
Chromecast will sell for $35 at Amazon, Best Buy and the Google Play store and will include three free months of Netflix for a limited time.
