Google launches Chromecast - The low-cost TV dongle

Google Chromecast - A living competitor to Apple TV

Google has finally announced its low cost dongle device called the 'Chromecast' - a device that many see as a competitor to Apple's TV. And it may be seen as a Google's attempt to gain ground in the television industry.

The dongle is plugged into a television's HDMI port, and allows users to stream media from smartphones, tablets and computers.

With Chromecast, Google is attempting to simplify its large-screen offering, focusing on streaming clips from services such as YouTube and Netflix via a far cheaper device.

Launching immediately in the US, the device will cost $35 (£23). There is as yet no word on international launches.
