What is Chromecast?¶
Chromecast is the streaming technology from Google. Using the Google Chrome browser, you can stream a browser tab, an audio/video file, or even your entire computer screen to the QuattroPod quickly and conveniently.
The QuattroPod allows Up to 4 Windows, Android and ChromeOS devices to broadcast to a split screen together via the Chromecast protocol without having to use the app.
