Yesterday Mario Queiroz, the Google VP of Product Management, introduced Google’s new product. It’s called Chromecast and I believe it’s their move to directly compete with Apple TV.

Let’s briefly cover some interesting stats about Apple TV:

  • Apple has sold over 12 million of them
  • They control 56% of the market share
  • It has a feature called the AirPlay feature

I brought up these stats and features, because Chromecast is set to get a piece of that glorious pie and add upon the existing AirPlay feature. As you may already know, this feature is only compatible with Apple products and lacks multi-screen features.

Chromecast will allow you to stream online content from the cloud and control it from your Android. Your device must be version 2.3 or later, as reported by Mashable. It supports the following: Netflix, YouTube, Netflix, Google Play, and Chrome for both Windows and Mac.

Another article reports that you can get this device for $35 in Google Play store, Amazon, and Best Buy. Along with that comes with 3 months of free Netflix. What are your thoughts on Google Chromecast? How do you think Apple will respond?

    Playback of a movie or video was fast with this device as well.
    This series of crushers can process the material with the side length of 100 to 500mm and the
    compression strength can reach 350MPA. With countless plastic baths lying
    on spacious shop floors like redundant crustacean shells discarded on a quiet beach, you realise that a plastic bath
    just won’t cut it.
