    Default With the aid of Chromecast

    I've recently heard about Chromecast since it was once featured along with the new Nexus releases that uses Andoid Marshmallow. What is Chromecast and how it works?

    Based on what I reasearched, it is a device enabling a High-definition Television to have an access with Wi-Fi through the use of mobile applications. With the use of Chromecast audio/video can be played in every television. Setting up Chromecast is not to easy for a plug-in only idea. Aside from plugging the device, a software set-up is still in need. Since the operation can't be done in the television, a need for device directly link to the internet is required.

    How essential does Chromecast portrays in our innovative era? Its a fact that a certain task from a device can be played and seen on a television, but what's the point? Simply because, it is much better for a wide-screen viewing? What else would Chromecast contribute?

    It is very good to use with the television. It also has some good apps like Netflix, Hulu Plus, Youtube, and Pandora. It's really an accessory though. No matter how cool it is, that doesn't make it essential. You can always purchase a smart television to do the same thing. Chromecast would be less expensive though. It's really up to you how much you can't live without it.

    Chromecast is basically a device that mirrors what's on your tablet on to a TV screen. So instead of watching TV shows on the small screen, insert your chromecast into the back of the TV and you can watch it on there instead.

    That's the basic, simplified explanation anyway.

    Right, but is it really an essential piece of equipment? I men, I guess it can be if you have trouble seeing things from your tablet or smartphone. My husband likes things big, so I guess I would say for him, it would be a God-send, but for normal people, we can take it or leave it.

    @Pwarbi thanks for the clarification regarding Google Chromecast. As you have already mentioned, it mirrors a tablet's screen on a TV screen. But, is it really worth using a Google Chromecast? I mean instead of watching a TV show on my tablet, I would directly watch it on my TV. Do you see it as an important invention or its just a hype?

    I use an HDMI cable to connect the tablet to the TV, and a wireless keyboard/mouse combo attached to the tablet. does the same job for me.
