If you can believe it, the Google Chromecast is already a year old. In that short amount of time, it has become one of the cheapest and bestselling streaming dongles, and has gone from a stick that could hardly do anything to one that has dozens (if not hundreds) of supported apps and can mirror your computer or Android screen.
Overall, it’s been a fun year – and to celebrate, Google is giving anyone who owns a Chromecast now, or who purchases a Chromecast before September 30, three months of Google Play Music All Access for free.
To redeem the offer, just visit chromecast.com/offers, making sure you’re connected to the same WiFi network that your Chromecast is. Unfortunately, it’s US only for now, and if you pay for All Access already, you won’t get any free months. This is purely for people who don’t currently subscribe (and most likely haven’t ever subscribed in the past).
Still, it’s a great way to try out the service – and if you have been on the fence about getting a Chromecast, it might help to think of it in terms of getting $30 of music streaming included, making the dongle itself only $5.[Google]
