FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) – Google has moved into new territory in the technology world.
The company is now selling a device that wirelessly connects to your TV, so you can watch web content on the big screen.
It's called Chromecast, and it looks like a black thumb drive. You plug it into the HDMI port on a flat panel television, connect to wi-fi, and then stream videos over the internet to your TV.
A major selling point of the new device is that it's user-friendly, and very convenient.
<"It's designed to give you easier access to stuff that's in the cloud. So it's designed to give you easier access to YouTube, to Netflix---that's one of the commercial applications that's rolling out with it. So Google's whole plan here is to make this stupid easy,” said John Kaufeld, IPFW Online Marketing Specialist.
Chromecast is compatible with Android, IOS, Mac, and Windows operating systems. The cost is just $35.
