At the Google Event today a brand new Nexus 7 tablet was unveiled. But that was not all. Google also released a brand new product called Google Chromecast.
For all the dummies out there it is important to know what is Chromecast.
Chromecast is a small USB like device that you connect to your HD TV. Chromecast lets you play the music and video files on your smartphone and tablet onto the big screen on your HD TV using your home wireless network.
The concept is similar to what Apple does with Airplay.
Currently the Chromecast is available for $35 and Google offers a free 3 month Netflix subscription with every purchase of Chromecast.
The best part about Chromecast is that once your have casted your content onto your Television you can use any other application on your device(smartphone,tablet) while the content on your Television yet goes on.
“Beam” a movie from your iPad onto your Television and watch the movie on your Television. Meanwhile you can also browse the net and check emails on your iPad.
