Google Chromecast casts online content to your TV screen

Google wants to revolutionize content streaming on TVs. Chromecast is the company's newest innovation. It's cheap, too.

Google did not only revealed a new Nexus 7 tablet running Android 4.3, it also announced a revolutionary device called Chromecast. The usb-like device, which costs only $35, can be plugged into HDTVs to stream content right straight from your smartphone or tablet or even your laptop.

It's also able to support multiple platforms ranging from Android, iOS, Windows, and OS X. Chromecast, according to Google, got its name from the word "cast" which represents how the device can cast online content into the TV screen. Google says that Chromecast works with Google Play Movies and TV, Google Play Music, Netflix, Pandora, and other apps.

So, how does it work? Setup is presumably easy. Just plug the device into your TV and you're good to go. It's also remote-free and can petty much work even when you're multitasking on your device. Chromecast is now available for $35 via Google Play, Amazon, and Best Buy.
