Google Chrome Blog: From TVs to tablets: Everything you love, across all your screens


Introducing Chromecast

To help make it easy to bring your favorite online entertainment to the biggest screen in your house—the TV—we’re introducing Chromecast. Chromecast is a small and affordable ($35) device that you simply plug in to your high-definition (HD) TV and it allows you to use your phone, tablet or laptop to "cast" online content to your TV screen. It works with Netflix, YouTube, Google Play Movies & TV, and Google Play Music, with more apps like Pandora coming soon. With Chromecast, we wanted to create an easy solution that works for everyone, for every TV in the house.

Cast the web to your TV

In addition to apps like Netflix, you can use Chromecast to bring a broad range of content available on the web to your big screen, thanks to a new feature in the Chrome browser that allows you to project any browser tab to your TV. From sharing your family photos to enjoying a video clip from your favorite news site, it’s as simple as pressing a button. This feature is launching in beta, but we’re excited for people to try it out and give us their feedback.

Unfortunately Chromecast doesn't let you play local content on your TV.

Also Chromecast does not have an entirely new UI designed for TV like Apple TV/Roku.


Waiting for someone to hack into this device to display entire phone screen on TV. That would be awesome then.
