Definition - What does Google Chromecast mean?
Techopedia explains Google Chromecast
Compared to other solutions, Chromecast functions in some unique ways. The device is small and thus consumes very little space. It tends to be cross-platform, and the mobile application along with the smartphone or tablet provides the remote control functionalities. Tab casting is also a feature that can be considered when one is playing videos from a non-streaming site. Multiple users can connect to the Chromecast device. The use of a smartphone or smart device provides a number of flexibilities to users. It also provides an option to browse Web pages on a television screen.
Chromecast, however, has some disadvantages. It does not have a native interface, and it requires the use of a smartphone or a tablet from which to control the device as there is no physical remote included. Application support is also limited, and tab casting produces pixelated video.
