Episode 1704 (1:47:04)

Tim from Oak Hills, CA
Google Chromecast

Tim wants to know how to hook up a tablet to a bigger screen. Leo says the easiest way would be to use Google Chromecast. You can connect that to a monitor and then use an app to cast the app to the TV. But the app needs to support it. Another option is a TypeC adapter to connect it. Are there apps that can make his tablet into a laptop? Leo says if it's a Samsung Android, then yes. But cheaper tablets don't support that option and aren't powerful enough anyway. You get what you pay for.  But you could use the web browser and access Google Docs that way online.
