My husband loves technology. He also loves looking at and watching movies, YouTube videos, live TV and photos from his many devices. There was one point when he was getting confused and a bit frustrated with using all of his different devices until he found the Google Chromecast Streaming Media Player.

Google Chromecast Streaming Media Player – What is it?
The Google Chromecast is a streaming media player. That means it lets you watch videos, listen to music, play games, and use other types of apps from the Internet on your TV. You find the content you want to watch/listen to or play on your Android or iOS mobile device or your Chrome browers and then you “cast” it to your TV through the player.
How does the Google Chromecast Streaming Media Player work?
Plug Chromecast into the HDMI port on your TV to power and stream your favorite entertainment right from your phone with just a tap. Watch shows, listen to playlists, and more. And while streaming, you can still use your phone as you normally do.
It also works with the streaming apps you know and love!
My husband enjoys all of his TV shows, movies, videos, songs, games, sports (especially sports!) and more from over 2000 apps like Netflix, YouTube, YouTube TV, and HBO NOW.
Start streaming with just your voice.
This is probably my husband’s favorite feature! He can just say what he wants to watch and control the TV hand-free with compatible apps. Chromecast and Google Home work seamlessly together. When he wants to watch House of Cards he just says…”Ok Google, play House of Cards from Netflix on my media room TV. It is just as simple as that!
