Turning ordinary TVs into Smart TVs with Chromecast 2

The Google Chromecast 2 is a tiny little dongle that’s no bigger than your average TV remote. It plugs directly into the HDMI port of your TV or monitor and automatically transforms it into a wireless display for your smartphone or tablet. This means that you can stream or “cast” videos from your smartphone and tablet directly on to your TV. It doesn’t just stop at videos however; even pages from Google Chrome or music from compatible music applications can be streamed from your device to the TV. The first Chromecast was well-received by HK consumers, so the Chromecast 2 has large shoes to fill.

The Chromecast 2 is a tiny little device that is roughly shaped like a hockey puck, and it comes in three different vivid colours: yellow, red, and of course the compulsory black. Its design is a great improvement over its predecessor, although that shouldn’t matter much as the device will just sit on the back of your TV.

Multi-Device, One Cinematic Experience - Chromecast 2 HK

The Google Chromecast 2 allows people to stream media from their devices to their TV wirelessly, eliminating the need for an Android or smart TV box of some kinds taking up space and the need for having more wires everywhere. The Google Chromecast 2 needs only a single cable to power it while the other built-in HDMI cable connects directly to your TV. From there on, most media you play on the Chromecast-compatible apps on your smartphone or tablet can be streamed wirelessly to your TV – essentially turning your normal everyday TV into a smart TV.

The Chromecast 2 supports up to Full HD 1080p resolution video through the HDMI port of your TV and it connects wirelessly with your home’s Wi-Fi connection. It is best to ensure that you have speedy Wi-Fi connection to enjoy smooth video streaming. For those who are worried that they are not using Android devices – worry not, the Chromecast 2 is compatible with Android, iOS 7 and above, Windows 7 and above, Mac OS10.7, and Google’s Chrome OS – it is also dependent on the apps and programs used.

Here's a review of the Chromecast 2:
