Google Releases Ethernet Adapter for Chromecast

Google's Chromecast allows users to stream audio and video content from their laptop, smartphone and other mobile device directly to a TV via WiFi. Earlier this year, the company announced that Chromecast would soon allow users to play Android and iOS games on their big screen TVs without the need for them to mirror content from their game consoles or mobile devices first.

The company claims to have sold millions of the $35 to $40 devices to users around the world since it was launched in July 2013. Chromecast is currently only second to Roku in the streaming media market with some 20 percent market share compared with Roku's 29 percent share, according to market figures from Parks Associates. The analyst firm's report shows that Google's growth has come at the expense of Apple TV in particular, which dropped to third place with a 17 percent share in 2014.

Other vendors in the same space include Amazon with its Fire TV and Sony.
