When Google Chromecast was launched, it hardly had a dozen apps. Even the Android operating system which was supposed to make this casting device awesome wasn’t upgraded to easily cast content.
But, as with most other products, the company had a vision and they built their app list throughout the months. A lot of good content came to Google Chromecast last year but in 2015 it just became the ultimate dongle that your television (and, you!) couldn’t live without.
At just $35 and even cheaper during discount sales, one would be retarded to not buy and try the small gadget that could instantly turn any HD television into a smart TV. It simply plugs into your HDMI port, powered using a USB cable and instantly connects to your Android device.
Even users who don’t have an Android phone or tablet could cast content from their Google Chrome browser or Youtube website to stream content live. There are so many ways to enjoy the best of home entertainment on this device and the big list of apps including the newly added ones will make sure you never run out of juice.
All you need to make Allcast work is to have the file on your device. Everything right from movies, pictures and music can be streamed to your television if you have this app installed. As it works with both iOS and Android, there is no need to worry about platform compatibility.
It’s a paid app at $3.99 and is worth it, especially if you love listening to podcasts. The app has a nice user interface and has vast list of content to make use of your free time.
Love gaming? Then, Twitch is a no brainer because it streams great gameplay videos, live tournaments and reviews from around the globe. Cast it to your television using Chromecast and you will be hooked to it forever.
The best thing that happened to Google Chromecast ever since its launch is when ES File Explorer got upgraded and supported casting. You can access movies from your vast library through LAN network on your phone or tablet and simply throw it at your television. It works every time and a good alternative is Plex.
