It is both surprising and disappointing when we realize we’ve been using several things for years without having fully explored them. There are usually two reasons behind this: Either we do not know about all their features, or there are modifications due to change in technology over time that we are unable to keep pace with.
In the case of the Google Chromecast, for example, its most popular usage has been that you can stream Disney Plus on Chromecast or use it for watching Netflix. Undoubtedly, the recent Google Chromecast Ultra allows us to do a lot for a thumb-sized device: it lets you stream in 4K, use Google Assistant, Google Nest interface, and makes your overall experience fun.
However, there is still a lot that you are missing out on. Chromecast can do much more, keep reading to find out:
Watching Amazon Prime
A recent update revealed that Amazon Prime Video is now a streaming partner with Google. When you have Prime and Chromecast together, your favourite Amazon Prime shows such as Transparent, The Boys, etc. are just a tap away!
Custom the Name
There is no need to call your Google Assistant to turn on Chromecast anymore. Using the Google Home app, you can change its name to whatever you like.
