I havenâ€™t had cable in a few years and Iâ€™m always streaming my favorite movies, videos and TV Shows online. I love the amount of money Iâ€™ve been able to SAVE by NOT having a monthly cable bill. Google Chromecast allows you to watch your favorite shows from any of your familyâ€™s tech devices. I like the convenience of being able to cast directly from my phone to my TV. The setup is easy, just plug the Chromecast into the HDMI port on your TV and immediately start streaming from your phone.
You can watch your favorite shows, live TV, YouTube and photo stream right on your TV. One of my favorite ways to pass time is watching the photo stream on the TV and reminiscing on what was happening at the very moment. Itâ€™s also great for events when your hosting family and friends. A conversation starter when the photos start to stream across the TV screen. I also like hearing my playlists while Iâ€™m working in the background. Iâ€™m always streaming a movie or playing music while I work.
Google Chromecast is compatible with your favorite apps like Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, YouTube TV and HBO Now just to list a few options. You can find more apps to stream on the Google website. They give you a comprehensive list and a variety of categories to choose from. Enjoy the ease of hands free commands and using your voice to stream. Just say â€œOkay Google, play Girlfriends Guide to Divorce from Netflix on my bedroom TV.â€ Grab your popcorn and youâ€™re ready to relax and binge!
