The Google Chromecast (3rd Generation) is an HD streaming video player from Google designed to make any TV smarter and more user-friendly almost instantly.
Released in 2018, the Google Chromecast 3 works by hooking directly into the HDMI port on the back of your TV, drawing power from its USB port and then acting as a receiver for streaming video links sent from your phone or tablet.
The magic happens when you press the Google Cast button that’s built into most streaming video apps. This sends a link to the Chromecast and immediately starts streaming. It’s an incredibly intuitive system when you use it, and circumvents the need for a discrete remote control.
