Chromecast: The best tech you can buy for under €40
Quite often, the best technology comes at a hefty price but not always. One of the exceptions to this rule is Google’s humble Chromecast. It’s great value and simple to use.
This device plugs into the HDMI port of a television, allowing the user to stream content from their phone, tablet or laptop onto the big screen. Aside from being a genius gadget, at a mere €39, it won’t break the bank.
There is minimal setup required and it will utterly transform how you consume content. It is by far the best solution for anyone looking to access services such as Netflix on the big screen, without upgrading to a Smart TV.
How does it work?
Once inserted into the HDMI port, connect it to your home Wifi network via the Chromecast app. The app will guide you through this process, so no need to be daunted. After a few easy steps, the Chromecast is up and running and ready to go.
Content streamed on your phone is then broadcast onto the TV, once the Chromcast symbol is selected. You will notice this symbol in the right-hand corner of services such as YouTube and Netflix.
A complete list of apps that are compatible with Chromecast is available here.
There are plenty of other products on the market offering similar services to that of Chromecast. None, however offer the same value for money.
If you’re looking to get more bang for your buck, Chromecast may be your best bet.
It’s available both in store and online.
