27 Things You Didn't Know Your Chromecast Could Do

Google helps simplify your online lifeā€”from email and online storage to news and digital maps. But it can also take over your TV with Chromecast, a streaming dongle that got a colorful makeover in 2015 and a 4K “Ultra” upgrade in 2016.

The Chromecast Ultra will set you back $69, but it’s really for those who have a 4K TV; be sure to check out the differences between the two devices before picking one up.

Whichever one you choose, part of the Chromecast’s appeal lies in its pure portability, but there’s also the price: just $35 to wirelessly stream Netflix, Spotify, HBO, Hulu, and more from your mobile device or PC to the TV. Not to mention apps for music, working out, and catching up on sports. When the Chromecast was released in July 2013, it quickly sold out, and is still going strong. Sales have now topped 55 million and rumors suggest a Bluetooth Chromecast might be in the works.

While the ultraportable device is pretty much plug and play, there are a few tips and tricks that can make casting more magical. Check them out below.
