We’ve seen a lot of deals for the – already pretty cheap – Google Chromecast. The Chromecast is Google’s latest entry into our living room, and we are loving it. It’s a pretty small, and cheap, HDMI dongle that you can control with your Android smartphone or tablet, as well as iOS devices, and your laptops. Up until now, only a few apps were compatible with the Chromecast, like Hulu+, Netflix, YouTube, Google Play Movies, and a few others. However, recently Google opened up the SDK for Chromecast, so we are seeing plenty more apps build it in. So we should see a ton of other great apps with Chromecast support very soon.
As stated, the Chromecast works with Android, iOS, and Chrome for Mac, and PC as well as Chrome OS. It’s a very easy setup as well, basically just plug it into your TV, then download the Chromecast app on your smartphone or tablet and connect the Chromecast to your internet, and you’re all set. It’s just that easy.
Right now, the Chromecast is available for $30 from Amazon, which is only a $5 savings, but it’s still an extra $5 you could spend on a movie for your Chromecast. It also has free shipping, and if you order this weekend and have Amazon Prime shipping you can receive it on Tuesday. Which is a pretty good deal in my eyes.
