Google just announced a new $35 Chromecast media streaming device that plugs into the HDMI port on your TV. Simply use your mobile device and the TV you already own to cast your favorite TV shows, movies, music, sports, games and more. Chromecast works with iPhone, iPad, Android phone and tablet, Mac and Windows laptop, and Chromebook.
The new Chromecast offers a fresh design that is easier to plug into TVs with crowded ports. It supports the latest Wi-Fi standards and adapts more easily to changing Wi-Fi conditions in your home, so you get higher quality video with less buffering. Plus there are two new colors.
Google also updated the Chromecast app to make it easier to find great things to watch or to play, across the thousands of apps that work with Chromecast — whether you feel like browsing or want to search for a specific TV show or movie. For Cast-enabled apps that aren’t already on your phone, Google will suggest one for you. The updated Chromecast app is rolling out on Android and iOS over the next few weeks.
