Setting up Chromecast

Here is a quick overview of the Chromecast setup after you plug it into an HDMI port. Note: I have the device plugged into an power outlet since an HDMI port won't charge the Chromecast.

1. Change your TV source to the appropriate HDMI port and then this screen displays.

2.  Visit on a laptop, phone, or tablet and set things up.

3.Click Set up once your laptop, phone, or tablet connects to the Chromecast.
4. Continue.
5.  Input wireless credentials. 

6. Confirm the code on your TV.

7. You are ready to cast! 

8. I tried YouTube first. I selected "Living Room Chromecast" in the lower right-hand corner.
9. Done! I tried it on my S3, iPad, and XOOM and it worked perfectly!

10. I am also using the Google Cast extension so I can cast any of my tabs to my TV.

So far I love Chromecast! It was very easy to setup and it was only $35! I will post a more detailed review once I get a chance to use it more. I do plan on bringing one to my computer lab at school so I can easily display my small screens on the big screen.
