Chromecast, the digital media player developed by Google is now available on Google Play India. This device was previously sold only through third-party vendors in India like Amazon.
Chromecast is a 2.83 inch HDMI dongle that plays audio/video content on a HD display by directly streaming it via Wi-Fi or a local internet network. You just need to plug in the device on your TV’s HDMI port and you can use your Android phone, tablet, iPhone, iPad, Mac or Windows laptop or a Chromebook to cast all your favorite media on the big TV screen.
To use Google Chromecast, you should have a Wi-Fi enabled supported device and a HDTV with an HDMI input. We had earlier talked about how to cast screen on Xbox One YouTube app using your Smartphone. Chromecast works in a similar way but you have tons of options like watching movies, TV shows, videos, music, photos, websites, and more from YouTube, Google Play Movies, and Chrome.
Chromecast is available for INR 2,999 on the Google Play Store and ships in 1-2 business days.
