Google Chromecast (2018) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 275.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from GOOGLE CHROMECAST Awesome price from an awesome store! Quick and easy online purchase...an exceptional same day pickup even though purchased after midday! Makes it easy to buy the things I want/need by using Humm to pay it over 10 weeks which works for my limited income...always great quality from Harvey Norman's. Always hassle free and great service with a smile they are always happy to help without pushing for a sale which I really like and they know their products and can help you decide what product fits your needs and budget without making you feel like you should buy the most expensive items...they really listen and are attentive..really good high team spirit about the place..i go back to them time and time again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Needs Wifi Didn't realise you needed wifi to work it and we dont have wifi at our home. You can hotspot it, but two devices are required, one to hotspot and one to stream.

Questions & Answers

Hi there, Will this work if I take it overseas? Thanks a lot

Asked by: JayCL
Thanks for a great question Jay. You may need a travel adapter to connect to the power supply for the countries you are travelling to, and you may also need to update your location using the device to ensure you have access to apps and services available in that country. Hope this helps!

Will it support YouTube or zoom...Also can we add any software to it

Asked by: Buddy
Hi Buddy. Thanks for your question. This supports Youtube and other streaming apps. Zoom doesn't have a Chromecast function so this will not be compatible with Zoom. You will not be able to add any software to this. Hope this helps

I don’t have wifi, will I be able to use data 

Asked by: PHE0
Thanks for your question PHE0. Chromecast requires a network; either WiFi or Ethernet if you buy the optional adapter. It doesn't support mobile data directly. You will need a secondary device for the chromecast to receive the data signal and complete setup. Once set-up, you can use this without data to stream to the device. You can find more information on this on Google Support pages. Hope this helps.
