Chromecast is a handy dongle that enables users with a PC or mobile device to enjoy Internet-streamed audio-visual content on a high-definition TV, even in the absence of a super-fast Wi-Fi network.
That’s possible through both web and mobile apps, the only requirement being Google Cast technology support.
The first-generation Chromecast was released in 2013 and had an HDMI plug built into the body and 802.11 b/g/n @ 2.4 GHz support.
However, the third-generation Chromecast dropped the magnetic attachment between the dongle body and HDMI plug and supports 802.11 b/g/n/ac @ 2.4/5 GHz connectivity.
So, these small devices are perfect to stream your favorite entertainment from Netflix, YouTube, and not only to your HDTV.
