Today I discovered that Chromecast is available in the UK. In fact, it may have been for a while but I’ve only just had the promo email from Google. Eager to learn more, I decided to have a look at the Android app support for it.
Why would someone pay £30 for such a limited media device? You can get a Prestigio Miracast dongle for the same price which mirrors an Android device’s screen on your TV, (Android 4.2+), meaning that you can view all of your apps on the big screen, not just a piddling list of 11! I know that you can stream content from iOS devices and PC’s to the Chromecast, but still, my interest has completely vanished.
