What is Chromecast?

chromecastAccording to Wikipedia,

Chromecast is a line of digital media players developed by Google.

The devices, designed as small dongles, enable users with a mobile device or personal computer to play Internet-streamed audio-visual content on a high-definition television or home audio system through mobile and web apps that support Google Cast technology.

Google Chromecast is an amazing device that lets you cast videos from mobile devices to your TV over Wi-Fi. It comes in different sizes and models, 1st gen, 2nd gen, 3rd gen, Chromecast Ultra and Ultra 4k, etc.

Its mainly used to cast popular streaming websites and apps such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, HBO, YouTube among others.

These services have in-built support for Chromecast which comes in handy if you want to cast your videos on TV.

Chromecast, Android, and iOS devices

If you have an Android device, you’re in luck. Since Android and Chromecast are both owned by Google, they work really well with each other. In fact, any good Android phone comes with a built-in feature for casting.

On iOS, however, its a little tricky. As you may have guessed, Apple and Google don’t usually go hand in hand with most stuff, and Chromecast is no different.

Therefore, if you want to mirror iPhone to Chromecast, you’ll have to improvise.

Good app but bare minimum features in the free version- only audio casting, no video casting.. thats so unfair.
Any free app that does the whole thing?

I could only get video casting, not audio unless I upgraded to the paid version.

Chromcast 2 – Iphone SE
Hi
I just paid for the advanced features to be able to 1. cast at 1080p 2. cast sound so I can host a kids party.
but..
It works fine until I run Skype and make a video call, as soon as the call connects it freezes and looses the connection.
It seems that I paid $28 for nothing!

Am I missing anything here or is Skype a problem?

Regards
