Google Unveils Chromecast, A $35 HDMI Dongle That Streams Web Content To Your TV
This is the company’s all-in-one solution to stream content from your phone, tablet, or computer to your TV. How does it work you might ask? Simple. You just plug into your HDMI port, allow access to your Wi-Fi signal, and you are ready to stream.
To ensure a great Chromecast experience over time, we’ve built Google Cast, a technology that enables developers to build consistent, intuitive multi-screen experiences across mobile devices and TVs. Today, we’re launching a preview version of Google Cast with more information for developers on our Google Developers blog. A handful of early developers are already working on enabling Google Cast technology in their apps, so more supported apps are coming soon. And while the Chromecast device is the first instantiation of Google Cast, we expect the technology to be embedded in a range of hardware from our partners in the future.
