Last week, Disney announced their much-anticipated streaming service in Disney+. While the name isn’t the best or most creative thing in the world, make no mistake: this will be a content service to be reckoned with. When you think about the vast properties under the Disney umbrella, it becomes apparent very quickly that tons of […]
As you may or may not know, Chromecast runs a varied version of Chrome OS. Once we understood this little-known fact, we began covering Chromecast news here on the site. What you likely do know is Chromecast is Google's most successful consumer product and has become a staple of the smart TV in millions of homes.
This is truly worth a bit of celebration! With Google and Amazon fighting like children for years over streaming services and hardware, we are finally at the end of the longstanding dispute and are getting not one, but two major shifts in the Google/Amazon video delivery services.
Just last week Apple loosened its ecosystem death grip on Apple Music by allowing their app to finally work on Chromebooks. Apple Music has been around on Android for quite some time, but it hasn’t worked on Chromebooks up until this point. The nod to Chrome OS support is a firm sign that Apple is […]
Ah, Chromecast Audio: the peculiar cousin to the vastly-popular Google Chromecast that never really managed to find a solid footing in the market. While being a fantastic add-on to traditionally “dumb” speakers, the Chromecast Audio never really caught on for the general public.
Tomorrow night, Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez will step into the ring and pair off against current WBA super-middleweight regular title-holder Rocky Fielding. It will be a big day not only for Canelo who is stepping up into a new weight class but also for the entire genre of televised fights. For Canelo, it means the shot […]
Nearly a year ago to the day, news spread that Google and Amazon have buried the hatchet on their long-running feuds that have, for years, prevented Chromecast devices from being sold on Amazon’s site.
The Chromecast experience on Chrome has been largely the same for quite some time. They’ve slowly changed small features and layouts along the way, but it seems a pretty significant overhaul is happening with the Casting interface. We’re oddly only seeing this change occurring on the HP Chromebook x360 at the moment and that device […]
The Chromecast Audio is an underrated and awesome little streaming device. The promise of this dongle is simple: turn any set of speakers you own into sweet, high-fidelity, Cast-enabled playback machines. Many of us already own good speakers in one form or another, but those devices tend to be wired or Bluetooth. If you’ve ever […]
Black Friday is safely in the rearview mirror but that doesn’t mean you can’t find the perfect deal for your holiday shopping list. Most retailers will continue to offer discounts through the end of the day tomorrow similar, if not the same, as Friday’s deals. Cyber Monday has become almost as big as Black Friday […]
Multi-room audio is nothing new, especially if you are a seasoned Chromecast user. All around our office we have Chromecasts and Cast-enabled speakers and each is assigned to various speaker groups to fit whatever audio needs that may arise. It’s a great feature and likely underused by most consumers and until recently, not available on […]
Google was pretty late to the Podcast game, but when they showed up, they brought a pretty decent app and service with them. Google Podcasts is a simple, clean and functional podcast player that gets a lot right and then just gets out of the way. In our recent travels, being able to download a […]
With the relatively quiet launch of the 3rd generation Chromecast, many of us were wondering what – if anything – is the advantage of buying a new Chromecast. While there’s a mysterious inclusion of a Bluetooth radio in this new Chromecast, it is still not clear why it is there.
