    Valdrich Fernandes | 5 June 2019 | Number in packaging: 1

    • Pros:

    • Pros:
      Small in size
    • Con:
      Initial installation is a bit of a hastle
    • Con:
      Can't be used to stream while gaming

    After the initial installation (which gave me some errors) it is very easy to use, even with devices that are not connected to your gmail account. Especial plus is that all (windows) laptops and Android phones work with the Chromecast without any additional setup.
