Chromecast

While some phones used to come with a mini HDMI port back in the olden days, it’s almost rare that you’ll find it on any new phones.

In such a scenario, being able to cast your screen becomes a little difficult. Enjoying the photos, videos etc on the big screen is an entirely different experience altogether. To help you with this, we have compiled a list of the best mobile phone connectors for TV, Wireless Display and Video Casting in India.

Chromecast

Chromecast

We have the Chromecast in the top spot in our list here. The device, launched by Google and released in a wide number of markets, changed the entire wireless TV dongles market. Sure, there may have been other affordable dongles out there, but none got the market going as much as Chromecast did.

Key Features

  • Plugs into your existing TV set if it comes with a HDMI port
  • Cast YouTube, Netflix, Hulu and other services natively using the Cast button on Android devices. Additionally, there’s a free Chromecast app available in the Play Store and iOS App store.
  • Use Chromecast from your laptop or computer as well, if you use the Google Chrome web browser. For this purpose, you will have to download the free Google Cast extension.

Pros

  • Very affordable at just Rs. 2,999
  • Highly portable
  • Tab Casting – The Chromecast can be used to mirror a Chrome tab open on your computer or laptop

Cons

  • No support for Amazon video. Not a big deal in India although it could be disappointing for some users
  • No physical remote – you have to use this via the Android or iOS app
