Sick of crowding around your son’s cell phone, or watching the latest episode of Housewives with your daughter, hunched over her laptop? Google Chromecast is the solution that will bring your family back together.
Thanks to Best Buy and Google Chromecast for sponsoring this post.
Google Chromecast brings it all back together for you – making streaming make sense again. It also makes it possible to watch stuff together again. I hate how divisive having so many devices can be!
Here’s the basics – you simply plug Chromecast into the HDMI port on your TV and then you have the power to stream your favorite entertainment right from your phone with just a tap. Watch shows, listen to playlists, and more. And while streaming, you can still use your phone as you normally do.
Google Chromecast works with the streaming apps you know and love. Enjoy your favorite TV shows, movies, videos, songs, games, sports and more from over 2000 apps like Netflix, YouTube, YouTube TV, and HBO NOW.
I love that it is also voice activated so you can start streaming with just your voice. This is useful when I’m in the kitchen cooking and watching the British Baking Show. Just say what you want to watch from compatible apps and control your TV hands-free, with Chromecast and Google Home working seamlessly together.
“Ok Google, play The British Baking Show from Netflix on my family room TV.
It’s so affordable you can get one for every TV in the house, turning every TV into a more functional family hub.
