The Google Chromecast was unveiled earlier today at Google’s San Francisco event. If you don’t know what it is, it’s pretty much the Nexus Q we’ve all been waiting for — 10x more awesome, and 10x more cheap. I’ll let you stream content from your phone, tablet, or computer browser to any TV the multimedia dongle is hooked up to.
Whether it’s YouTube, Google Play Music, Pandora or the like, you’ll be able to get a wide range of content onto the big screen, and with an SDK more apps are sure to follow. Unfortunately we didn’t have immediate access to a TV, but we’ve taken it out of its box to show you what to expect once you’re able to pick one up for yourself in a few days’ time. Watch the video above.
