Gifts of Innovation #16: Chromecast by Google


Subscribe to directly receive the latest and greatest from BrandJuice.


In the modern age, we not only crave instant access – we demand it. And with such busy schedules, we’re not able to watch our favorite shows on a timetable. Then overnight the streaming egg hatched and we were hooked. From Netflix to Roku, Amazon Prime to Hulu, the options are seemingly endless. But who really wants to watch Game of Thrones on a 3-inch screen?

Enter Chromecast: a beautiful little device changing the streaming experience in a big way. The Chromecast tool has a surprisingly simple proposition: it acts as a wireless portal to your TV, and doesn’t try to be anything more. What it does do is bring to life things like YouTube, Google Play, Pandora and more. And it is beyond easy to use: plug it into your TV, then stream video and music to it from apps running on any of your devices (mobile or laptop). No remote needed – the device you are streaming from acts as the remote.

At a the $35 price tag, this might be one of the best investments you’ll make. Just power it up, plug into your TV’s HDMI, and let the Chromecast do it’s magic.

To quote Sir Arthur C. Clarke,  “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” Well done Google.
