We Want: Google Chromecast

14 February 2014

chromecast Have you heard of the Google Chromecast? If not, it is a wonderful thing that needs a UK release, as soon as possible.

Basically, the device is a thing that lets you wirelessly display stuff from your phone, tablet, laptop or whatever, to your TV. Obviously, if you've got a Smart TV or a smart box, this is no use to you. However, if not, this little gadget is retailing for around £20 ($35 in The States) and will be a must-have.

Especially great if, for example, you only have the BT Sport app on your phone or tablet, and want to watch it on the large TV.

Chromecast will wirelessly broadcast from pretty much any mobile device to any TV that has a HDMI port. Once you set-up, with the Chromecast app, you're away! It works with Android phones and tablets, iPhones and iPads, laptops or desktops and Chromebooks.

If you're the sort to do presentations and such, this'll be a useful tool, but for most of us, it'd be great for streaming shows and movies. Rumour has it, that the Chromecast will be released in the UK next month, which is great news.

    Unless I've missed a trick you wouldn't be able to Chromecast with the BT Sport app until and if they add Chromecast support. Currently you can broadcast from Chrome on a PC/Laptop but not from Android Chrome but this may change soon. There are currently around 14 apps supported in the UK including YouTube, NetFlix, Play Music, Play Movies, Vevo, Plex, Real Player and Red Bull TV. Sky Go won't broadcast from a laptop, probably something to do with Silverlight, I don't imagine they will add support to the Sky Go app for a while either.

    There is already one from Justop, but reviews for EZCast aren't good: http://www.amazon.co.uk/JUSTOP-Miracast-Mirroring-Streaming-MiraCast/dp/B00FG1XSWK/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1392463376&sr=8-7&keywords=chromecast
