What is Google Chromecast? Although we have an article dedicated to this device, we will sum it up for you: it is a streaming device that wirelessly connects your phone, tablet or computer to a monitor or TV.

If your monitor or TV screen has an HDMI port (which almost all TV screens have these days), you can turn it into a smart device that can connect to all sorts of apps you have on your phone or computer.
