Many of us are taking advantage of online streaming services while we are all encouraged to stay at home in response to the current global pandemic. We have an overwhelming number of streaming apps like Netflix, Hulu, and even the recently launched Disney + to entertain us and get rid of the boredom. Interestingly, we can still level up our streaming experience using devices like Chromecast. Similar to Roku and Alexa, Chromecast is a device that allows you to stream videos and other Internet-streamed audiovisual content on High definition television through mobile devices and apps that support Chromecast technology.

ChromecastHow Chromecast Works?

If Amazon has Alexa, Google has Chromecast. Both devices work the same way but with some notable distinctions. Chromecast is more like a plug-and-play device that you input on your TV. If you are also familiar with the Roku Stick device, Chromecast comes with the same setup. After connecting the device, the user needs to download the Google Home app to gain full access to Chromecast. Using the Google Home app, you can set up your Chromecast device and cast content to your TV from Chrome or other Chromecast-enabled apps.

Similar to Alexa, the Google Home app comes with a virtual assistant that can be commanded using your voice. It comes with an impressive voice-recognition technology that makes your life a lot easier. You can use this technology to help you do things like accessing various forms of media, managing your daily tasks, and control numerous devices using your voice. Take note that the streaming services of Chromecast are just one of the overwhelming functions offered by Google Home. The Google Home app on your mobile will serve as a remote control. All you need is to download the app and simply assign your devices to rooms to control everything in one place.
