About Google Chromecast

Google Chromecast is a small device about the size of a USB internet modem or USB flash drive. It connects to your TV via HDMI port (not USB). The Chromecast connects to your Wi-Fi network and streams online video and audio on your tablet, smartphone, or laptop / desktop to your HDTV directly from the web.

For now Google Chromecast supports smartphones and tablets running Android and iOS. It also allows you to stream webpages to your TV from Google’s Chrome browser on Windows and Mac based laptops and possibly desktops. You control (play, pause, volume, etc) the media using your mobile device. Google Chromecast is powered either by connecting it to the wall mains or by connecting it to the USB port of your TV. It may also receive power directly from the HDMI port.

Using Google Chromecast

Using the Google Chromecast is very simple. Just connect it to the HDMI port on your TV and supply it power via USB or mains power. Some latest high definition TVs can supply power to the Chromecast directly via the HDMI, so in such case no other power input will be required.

Once you connect your Google Chromecast to Wi-Fi, you can stream online media on your mobile device from the web to your television. Note that your mobile device does not actually stream directly to your TV rather it enable Chromecast stream the content directly from the web source and sync it to the view on your mobile device.

So, let’s say you are watching a YouTube video on your smartphone and decide to cast it to your TV. Your smartphone does not cast its content to your TV, rather it syncs with Google Chromecast to stream the content directly from YouTube via Wi-Fi to Chromecast and then via HDMI to your TV.
