The success of Chromecast is in credit to it being a cheap and cheerful method of converting an HDMI connected TV into a smart TV simply with a dongle and a smartphone or tablet (which most of us have). There’s also the ever growing selection of compatible apps which feature the cast icon allowing content from mobile software to be displayed on a television screen. These now include streaming favourite Netflix, YouTube, BBC iPlayer, BT Sport with even more favourite apps being developed with Chromecast in mind. There are said to be 10,000+ apps currently in the works with cast ability coming soon for more of our favourites.
Google has previously confirmed that a new version of the Chromecast will be streaming in the near future, keeping the familiar functionality, ease of use and affordability and it may also work as a hub for multiple other Chromecast devices, suggesting that the first generation model would continue to be a relevant addition to the market.
