Once you have your Chromecast device plugged into one of your TV's HDMI inputs, all you need do is switch the TV's source (usually through a source button on the remote) to the HDMI port and you are ready to go. Google's Google's Chromecast is the perfect choice for anyone wanting to hold their tablet or smartphone in their hand while projecting the screen to their TV. It also happens to be the cheapest choice for those who don't have a Micro HDMI port on their device. But don't mistake it for similar streaming devices like Roku, Apple TV or Amazon Fire TV. The Chromecast dongle doesn't actually do anything on its own. It relies on your Android device to be the brains behind the operation, while it simply takes your Android screen and 'casts' it onto your television set.
