Superheroes, cliff divers, fearless reporters or today's biggest hits —whatever you like to watch, Chromecast makes it easy to bring it from a phone, tablet, or laptop to the biggest screen in your house: the TV. Since announcing Chromecast in the U.S., we’ve grown to include more of your favorite apps and websites. Those numbers will to grow, and we want to bring Chromecast to more people around the world. Today, we are pleased to announce that Chromecast is now available in Canada, and 10 countries -- Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden and the UK.
In addition to your favorite apps like YouTube, Google Play Movies, Netflix, Songza and VEVO, and we are adding new content all the time. So instead of huddling around your laptop to watch your favourite movies, or videos you can cast it, sit back, and watch together on the big screen.
Chromecast takes just a few minutes to set up and is really easy to use. Once installed, you can use your phone, tablet, or laptop to browse and cast content to your TV. You can use your device to play and pause what you’re watching or adjust the volume on the music you’re streaming.
Unlike other streaming solutions, Chromecast allows you to multitask, so you can send an email or update your social networks while watching what’s on your TV screen. It works across lots of platforms too -- Android tablets and smartphones, iPads, iPhones, Chrome for Mac and Windows, and many Chromebooks.
Chromecast will keep getting better. We recently opened up Chromecast to developers, and in a few short weeks more than 3,000 developers worldwide have signed up to bring their apps and websites to Chromecast. You’ll soon have more TV shows, movies, videos, sports, music and games to choose from. Stay up-to-date on the latest apps that work with Chromecast at chromecast.com/apps.
Look for Chromecast on sale starting today on Google Play and Amazon.ca. Happy casting!
