Google's Latest Plan to Take Over Your Living Room

By almost any measure, Chromecast has been a hit. Among dedicated streaming devices, it was the second-most popular in the U.S. in 2014, capturing about 20% of the market according to Parks Associates. Worldwide, it's been even more popular. Earlier this month, research firm Strategy Analytics reported that Chromecast was the top-selling streamer in the world in 2015, selling some 14.7 million units. To date, Google has sold about 27 million Chromecasts in two and a half years. In contrast, Amazon has sold fewer than 10 million Fire TV devices. Apple has sold about 37 million Apple TV units, but has been selling its device for far longer -- about 9 years.
