Even if many people find it hard to install Google Chromecast, it is quite easy and we will tell you in this article how to do it.
Chromecast is a small HDMI thing that connects to your TV using the HDMI port. In order to work it requires power and it is charged via the USB port from your TV or by connecting it to an outlet. To start using Chromecast, just plug it in the HDMI port of your TV and connect the charger. Switch the TV on and change the input on the HDMI port that your Chromecast is connected to.
After you connected the Chromecast device to your TV, use the browser from your tablet or smartphone and go to Google Play Store and download Chromecast.
