Google’s second-generation of Chromecast devices are seriously formidable streamers – and now they’re cheaper than ever.
Currys PC World is selling the Google Chromecast (2015) and the Google Chromecast Audio (2015) as part of a discounted bundle for just £40. That’s a saving of £20, as both devices usually retail at £30 apiece.
The Google Chromecast plugs into the back of your TV via a HDMI port, and lets you cast content directly from your phone over Wi-Fi. You’ll be able to watch TV shows and movies from supported apps like Netflix and BBC iPlayer – plus a few games too.
The Chromecast Audio, meanwhile, is a similar prospect to the Chromecast, but for music. While the Chromecast turns any television into a smart TV, the Chromecast Audio transforms any speaker into a smart sound system. It plugs into speakers via the standard 3.5mm jack, and lets you cast music using your phone, but over Wi-Fi – it’s a bit like Sonos.
The new Chromecast scored 9/10 in our review. We praised its great value for money – which is even better with today’s deal – plus its 5GHz Wi-Fi support, compact design, and excellent app.
The Chromecast Audio also scored 9/10, with positives including its ease of setup, compatibility with a wide range of speakers, the simple app, and strong third-party app support.
