Google has sold more than 20 million Chromecast devices worldwide to day and is now ready to release the second generation of Chromecast. There are actually two Chromecasts; one for video and one for audio. We will take a look at the one for video. Like that previous one, you can connect the new Chromecast to any TV through the HDMI port and enjoy access to streaming services such as Netflix, HBO, YouTube and Google Play.
