What can I do with the Google Chromecast?
Stream media from your smartphone or tablet to the TV by plugging your Chromecast into the HDMI socket. Watch your favourite TV shows, films, music, sport or games which you would normally watch on your small device on the big screen. Continue to use your phone like normal while streaming and it will not disrupt what is already playing. Mirror any website from your laptop's Chrome browser to the TV, take surfing the web to another level. Turn your TV screen into a game board, racetrack, dance floor or trivia quiz. With Chromecast, everyone can play games using their phone as their personal controller, while watching the action live on the big screen.

What devices are compatible with Chromecast?
Connect to your Chromecast via either iPhone, iPad, Android phones or tablets or Mac and Windows laptops and Chromebooks.

How do I setup my Chromecast?
The Chromecast is easy to setup and connect to your chosen device. Plug the Chromecast into the back of your HDTV and power, connect it to your Wi-Fi network, then you are ready to start casting from your phone, tablet or laptop.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well - great streaming via phone and laptop Bought this a month ago to stream the web on my TV...easy setup, plug into tv then use app on android phone to enable WiFi/settings. Streams well from laptop (using chrome browser) were you can stream the complete tab page and movies by drag and drop onto web page. Android phone streaming and iPad work well too. Shame there is no GUI all done via phone or laptop but for the price its excellent bit of kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does Everything I Hoped I think my opinion is expressed in the title. I can now send screen display and video from my Galaxy S6+, and also from my Windows laptop wirelessly. Applications have to be Chromecast enabled, but this is the case for YouTube and iPlayer, which are the only two I have tried so far.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sad disappointment Bought to do what it said on the tin and it failed miserably! Wouldn't install properly at first so went to tech support as installation instructions virtually non existent ( 3 lines!). They failed to resolve it saying unit must be faulty. But after playing for another hour finally progressed to seeing install screen on TV. The system then wanted to upgrade and 3 hours and 4 reboots later unit still trying to upgrade. Phoned tech support again and they had no solutions. Item sent back for refund. A severe waste of time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing For a long time I was undecided about buying a Now Box (Roku) or the Chromecast. I realise now they are different products in a lot of ways as obviously the Now box allows you to access Now/sky channels. Where as Chromecast is just streaming my phones display. So it's my own fault for not researching properly. Chromecast is back in it's box now unused not least because using it makes my TV unwatchable with interference and picture freezing. Great service from Maplin. Just make sure you know what you're buying..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It 'just works' really easy catch up TV and much else If you can watch something on your Android phone or iPad you can transfer it to your TV. BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and 5 all work very easily. I've little doubt there's a lot more this little gizmo can do. NB there is no remote control, you have to have a tablet or phone linked to the same WiFi.

Can the video HDMI output of a laptop be receive on the TV

Asked by: kendal
The port on a laptop is for output only, you cannot use the screen of a laptop for anything other than the laptop. Chromecast must be connected to the HDMI port of a suitable TV or monitor in order to work.
