Chromecast is a digital media player developed by Google. The device, a 2.83-inch (72 mm) HDMI dongle, plays audio/video content on a high-definition television or display by directly streaming it via Wi-Fi from the Internet or a local network. Users select the media to play using mobile apps and web apps that support the Google Cast technology. Alternatively, content can be mirrored from the Google Chrome web browser running on a personal computer, as well as from the screen of some Android devices.
Chromecast was announced on July 24, 2013, and made available for purchase on the same day in the United States for US$35. The Google Cast SDK was released on February 3, 2014, allowing third parties to modify their software to work with Chromecast. According to Google, over 20,000 Google Cast–ready apps are available, as of May 2015.
Chromecast was favorably received by critics, who praised its simplicity and potential for future app support. Over 17 million units have shipped globally since launch, and it was the best-selling streaming device in the United States in 2014, according to NPD Group. Since Chromecast’s launch, it has handled more than 1.5 billion stream requests. Google’s second Google Cast receiver, the Nexus Player, was released in November 2014.
