Chromecast

Developed by Google and released in July 2013, Chromecast is a digital media player that plays audio and video content on a high-definition display.

The device, a 2.83-inch HDMI dongle, works by streaming the content via Wi-Fi from the Internet or a local network. Users select the media to play using Chromecast-enabled mobile and web apps. Content can also be mirrored from the Google Chrome web browser running on a personal computer or from the screen of certain Android devices.
