With Google Chromecast 2, love it BIG!
Yesterday, Google has released a new version of the Chromecast! This Google Chromecast 2 displays some new features and compatibilities as well as being easier to plug on the back of your TV.
By redesigning it round and easily pluggable thanks to his new HDMI connector based on a flexible built-in cable, the new Chromecast is now coming out in black, red or yellow.
It has seen its WiFi upgraded from a single-band 2.4GHz 802.11n solution to a dual-band 2.4/5GHz 802.11ac, improving by this way the overall bandwidth to the Chromecast. Google also shows during their presentation that the Google Chromecast 2 uses multiple antennas to improve reception.
The Chromecast app is your one-stop shop for exploring what you can do on Chromecast. Easily browse featured content across your apps and search for where you can watch your favorite movies and TV shows. Plus, it’s your central place for finding the latest on new apps, offers, and new features added to your Chromecast.
The chromecast app is available on all platforms: iPhone®, iPad®, Android phone and tablet, Mac® and Windows® laptop, and Chromebook. Nobody is left behind 😉
When you’re not casting, you can use your TV as a beautiful picture frame that you can customize with Google Photos (recently updated too) as well as Facebook content, Flick, news, weather and so on…
You can also mirror your android’s screen to TV and duplicate your Chrome browser content on bigger screen!
For the fun, turn your TV screen into a game board, racetrack, dance floor or trivia quiz. With Google Chromecast 2, everyone can play games using their phone as their personal controller, while watching the action live on the big screen, awesome aye?!
