See It, Stream It, And Stay Entertained with the Google Chromecast Streaming Media Player

This post is sponsored by Best Buy. This in no way shapes my opinion of this product.
Are you a fan of the Google Chromecast? I am! I’ve been using the Chromecast technology since it first came out and I absolutely love it. Not only does it work perfectly for traveling, but it’s a great addition to any room with a TV if you’re looking to stream your media. And now there’s an updated model available at Best Buy. I have one in my guest room and one in my son’s room which allows streaming of platforms like Netflix as well as Google Play Music.

About the Updated Google Chromecast Streaming Media Player

The Google Chromecast is made to stream movies, shows, live TV, YouTube and photos to TVs from your smart device. All you have to do is plug the Chromecast into the HDMI port on your TV or projector and follow the easy setup guide in your Google Home app. Then, you’re capable to watch shows and movies, listen to playlists and more. All while being able to use your phone or smart device to its full functioning ability.


The Chromecast works with over 2,000 apps. ANd what’s even better, is it integrates with AI technology so all you have to do is say, Okay Google, play Game of Thrones from HBO NOW on the guest room TV.”


This is my favorite technology because I can make my TV do things without lifting a finger. And, I don’t have to worry about buying a smart TV in every room. The $35 Google Chromecast is all I need. And with its High-speed wireless connectivity, it’s linked up to my home’s network so there is no hotwire needed.

So now you don’t need to worry about saving up your money to buy an expensive smart TV. You can use your HDMI compatible TV with the Google Chromecast and have access to all your favorite streaming apps. It’s portable and you can use it from one room to another. And if you’re traveling, you can take it with you and use it in your hotel, so long as the TV had HDMI and your room has wi-fi access. Now that’s what I call binge watching!
