Connect AirPods to Google Chromecast: this is how you do it

Do you want to watch your television in complete silence? Or is there a lot of noise in your area? Then it is useful to connect your AirPods to the Google Chromecast. That’s how you do that!

This is how Google Chromecast works

The Google Chromecast is now indispensable if you regularly watch series and films, but still have an ‘old’ television. With the external device you can watch Netflix, Videoland and other streaming services on your television, without your television having to be connected to the internet. This way you can transform any television into a smart TV, without having to buy the latest model.

The big advantage of Google Chromecast is of course that you are no longer dependent on the small screen of your iPhone (or iPad). Instead, you watch series and films on the large television screen. Unfortunately, you are more likely to be bothered by ambient noise, which means you sometimes have to turn up the television undesirably. Or you have to turn the television down because you are bothering others. In that case, it is useful to connect your AirPods to Google Chromecast.
