First time I saw this thing. How is it different from a typical Android TV stick?

I'm interested too. Currently we connect old smartphone to TV to watch youtube (so DS's eyes won't deteriorate further from watching youtube on the phone). It is so leceh because sometimes we forgot to charge the smartphone :faint:

Anyone using this? Easy to use? Works with Android and iOS and any brand of TV?

Chromecast turned out to be pretty interesting and useful stuff. Besides, pretty cheap. The only problem is that in our country certain content is blocked, and proxy server (advanced.name in my case) it works not very stable.
