In the month of July in 2013 Google launched a budget friendly streaming device Chromecast. And now in just 2 years Google has sold out ten million Chromecast units which is quite impressive.
When this device came into existence it only supports for few apps but then with time it expanded its slot. And now there are around 6000 Android, iOS and Chrome apps that are compatible with Chromecast. Lately, Microsoft's Xim photo sharing app also gets updated with Chromecast support.
Moreover it's also been rumoured that Google is planning to align it with the Android TV to get more out of it.
