Simply by plugging Chromecast into any HDTV, connect it to WiFi, you can immediately send videos and more from your smartphone, tablet or laptop to your TV with the press of a button.
While most Smart TV comes with a remote control, you’ll still need to have good finger maneuvering skill with the remote just to get your favourite YouTube video running. Keying is search with the arrow keys with one letter at a time is not exactly very smart. Even if you have a Samsung Smart TV with Smart Motion control (hand-gesture control), waving your arms around in the air trying to key in your search, again with one letter at a time doesn’t make you look any smarter too.
But if you’ve got Chromecast, you can simply search and run your favourite YouTube video from your smartphone or tablet and then switch it over to your HDTV. Is there any other reason why you shouldn’t be getting one? I’ll probably be getting one when it is made available here in Malaysia.
