Say hello to Chromecast

By Casey Frye, CCNN Writer

Step aside Google Glass, a new Google product is ready for the spotlight! They call it the Chromecast, and it’s a tiny gadget no bigger than a pack of gum. What does it do? The device plugs into the HDMI port of your TV and after some basic setup, you can begin streaming the internet directly on your TV screen! Chromecast can play videos from YouTube, Netflix, and Google Play. Additionally, you can stream any content that can play on the Google Chrome web browser. Hey, aren’t there devices that can do this already? Yes, but the difference is that Chromecast makes it much easier and comes with an unbeatable price of $35. Google is currently working on getting more apps, like the popular internet radio station Pandora, to feature on their gadget.
