Google Chromecast Review

There’s only one word to describe Google Chromecast – Brilliant.

For those of you who don’t know about Chromecast, it is a device that you plug into your TV’s HDMI port, powered by a USB cable. Using your household WIFI connection, Chromecast allows you to use your smartphone, tablet, laptop or computer as a remote control to access multimedia content on your device. Netflix, YouTube, Hulu Plus, Play Store, to name a few, all have support for Chromecast. What’s more, at just AUD$49.00, it is so affordable that you can turn every TV in your household (with HDMI port of course) into a Smart TV. You get a quality product at a budget price.


  • Quick and Responsive
  • Easy to setup and use
  • Cheap and effective


  • TV and device sometimes go out of sync
  • No support for Windows Phone
  • Some apps aren’t supported

Overall it’s 10/10 for me.
