Since so much content is available through streaming services, more and more families are looking to cut the cord as a cost saving measure. Google Chromecast Streaming Media Player has been a favorite in the market since 2013 but a recent update has resulted in a device that looks a bit sleeker and a bit powerful for the same $35 price.
If you’ve considered Google Chromecast to stream movies, shows, live TV, YouTube, and photos from your family’s devices, here are 6 reasons the newest Chromecast is appealing.
4 Reasons to Get Google Chromecast Streaming Media Player
Easy to Stream Entertainment from Your Phone to TV
Google Chromecast is plug and play and all it takes is 4 easy steps to get started!
- Simply plug Chromecast into the HDMI port on your TV
- Visit chromecast.com/setup
- Connect it to your home WiFi
- Tap the Cast Button in a Cast-enabled app on your phone to start streaming your favorite entertainment, videos, and photos right from your phone or laptop
Google Chromecast puts shows, favorite playlists from Spotify, Pandora, and YouTube music, and the ability to showcase family photos and videos, and more right at your fingertips so you can view content you love on a bigger screen. Even though Google Chromecast works with your phone, it doesn’t mean that using it renders it useless. You can still multitask and use your phone like you normally would but enjoy viewing content you love on a bigger screen.
Works with the Streaming Apps You Know and Love
With so many partners, Chromecast lets you enjoy TV shows, movies, videos, songs, games, sports and more from over 2000 apps like Netflix, YouTube, YouTube TV, Hulu, HBO NOW, and more. Not sure if your favorite content is available through Chromecast? It probably is! View the whole list here but note that subscriptions are required to view some content: g.co/chromecast/¹
Stream Using Voice Commands
Google Home owners will love how easy it is to use Chromecast with Google Home. Simply speak what you want to watch from compatible apps to control your TV hands-free because Chromecast and Google Home work seamlessly together. All you need to do is say, “Ok Google, play Stranger Things from Netflix on my living room TV” and you’ll be transported to the upside-down! Note: Google Home, Chromecast, and compatible content are required to cast to a TV using Google Home.
Upgrade Your TV for Less
Purchasing a Google Chromecast is a cost-effective way to expand your home entertainment without buying a new TV or getting dedicated cable boxes for each television you own. At the cost of $35 per Chromecast, it’s affordable enough to get one for every TV in the house.
With the power to make the most of apps and entertainment already on your phone, Google Chromecast Streaming Media Player makes it easier than ever to cut the cord for good! Google Chromecast is currently available at Best Buy for $35.
