The Chromecast broadcasts wireless video from smartphones, tablets, and laptops to any HDTV screen.

Think your tablet or smartphone has too small a screen to watch any of your favorite movies? Why not stick a Chromecast into your HDTV and stream those videos on a bigger screen?

Google’s Chromecast is a $35 USB-like device that can push content from smartphones, tablets, and laptops into a TV screen. It works with Android phones and tablets, iOS devices, Chrome for MAC and Chrome from Windows. Users simply plug the Chromecast into the HDMI input of their TV, connect it to WiFi, and then send videos from their tablets, smartphones, or laptops.

The Chromecast not only streams content, but it can also serve as a remote control. Users can control the volume or pause the video from their personal device. Users can also still use the source device while it is streaming content. They can send emails or browse the net while watching their video. It’s also easy to use any device as the controller for the content shows up on the TV screen.

As of now the Chromecast can only support YouTube, Google Play Music, Google Play Movies, and NetFlix, but more apps will be added soon.

Watch the clip below to see the Chromecast in action.
