Instead of aimlessly switching channels from your set-top box, why don’t buy your TV a new best friend for this year's festive season? The new Google Chromecast (₹3,499) is a little faster than its predecessor, it’s slightly better looking and is able to make every dumb TV into a smart bugger. From streaming your favourite TV shows from Netflix (1080p at 60fps), watching live sports on Sony LIV (1 year free premium subscription), listening to music from Gaana (6 months free subscription) or mirroring your smartphone for big-screen action, this makes everything super easy. And if you’ve already smartened your living room with the Google Home, you just have to say “Hey Google, play music from YouTube” and it’ll stream it on your telly. You can pick up one from here in Charcoal. Think of it like getting your dumb TV a brain.
