When entered into a TVs HDMI port, the dongle is dependent on the user’s PC or smartphone to power the apps and grab the content to the dongle, which finally shows the content on the TV. The positive fact that this successful little thing brings is the space saving and the cost savings. Chromecast has favouring factor of being available at only $35 which is far lower than that of $100 for the Apple TV and Roku 3. Also, this has a loophole like it operates with only wireless connections and those who have wired connections will not be able to use the compact dongle. And, when the wireless signal suffers break down, streaming will also be affected. Google’s streaming-centric device also requires more technical aspects to perform, as it needs you to browse your phone to acquire the apps and select the content you intend to see, rather than just doing all you want on your TV with the abilities from the other two devices.
