Google Introduces New HDMI Streaming Solution For TV’s Called “ChromeCast”
Google recently introduced “Chromecast”, a 2-inch HDMI USB dongle that mirrors content played nearby on a smartphone or tablet/PC. The device streams the content from the cloud direct to the dongle when you activate mirroring on a Chromecast-compatible service like YouTube or Netflix. The device also has a “Cast” button that allows users to push video to their televisions and control various aspects remotely (volume, play, pause, etc.). This frees up your PC for multi-tasking, and for working as a WiFi-based remote control.
