Chromecast has been probably one of the most innovative devices that allows you to easily “cast” online videos such as YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, etc…etc… Now, one of the missing features of Chromecast is that it cannot by itself stream movies on your phone. Also, if you want to stream 4K movies, that’s even near impossible to do.
Google has revolutionized how many people stream videos and movies to TVs by selling over 20 million units of the original Chromecast, which cost less than $40.
Google has released Chromecast 2nd generation yesterday and I was able to receive it today. The new Chromecast 2nd gen features a completely new look with Chrome logo on a circle shape with a short HDMI cable that’s also magnetic.
