With Chromecast, everyone can play games using their phone as their personal controller, while watching the action live on the big screen.

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 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 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 Great concept I bought this over a month ago and it's been a godsend! It's a handy thing that turns the average old TV into a smart TV and it works by going through an app on your phone. I mostly use Netflix through it myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent gadget As an avid Netflixer this has been a brilliant buy. So easy to set up and now use, I can 'cast' anything and everything to the big(gish) screen. I particularly like how it can be powered directly from the tv via the USB cable - saves having another mains socket in use. The actual thing is smaller than I expected, and sits out of sight, hanging off one of the tv's HDMI sockets but ready to go whenever I need it - no more difficult than flicking over to use the DVD player.

Can I download onto more than one device 

Asked by: supersol
Yes, more than one device can set up the Google Home app to cast to a single Chromecast. However you can only cast from one device at a time

1. Will this link to a Bose speaker 2. Can I play my iTunes library through this

Asked by: Mick TP Casey
I could not guarantee this would work with a speaker as this device is designed for video streaming such as youtube or netflix, I would say the Chromecast audio would be more suited for your use; http://www.maplin.co.uk/search?text=chromecast+audio&x=0&y=0
