The Google player has proven to be one of the most recommended that exist due to its ease of use; reduced dimensions; and, of course, that its price is quite tight. The fact is that one of its virtues, such as the operation to transmit information through WiFi networks, it becomes an inconvenience on some occasions … something that comes to solve the Samsung Galaxy S7 with one of its new options.
An example of when the Chromecast does not offer adequate functionality is when you are in a hotel where you have to access the WiFi network by going through a web confirmation system. Here the player stops working properly and therefore you have a problem. Well, as we indicated yesterday, the Samsung Galaxy S7 allows you to share the WiFi access with which you access the Internet and, therefore, it becomes the perfect solution.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 as a router
The fact is that the Samsung Galaxy S7 can be used as if it were a router and, in this way, that the Chromecast uses the device to connect to to provide service (without having to resort to WiFi Direct, which in more on one occasion I have confirmed that it gives problems with the Google player, and that not all phones and tablets are compatible). Hence, the new Samsung phone becomes a most interesting and useful tool for those who have one of the players we are talking about – and it is shown that the new terminal includes a large number of functionalities that make it unique.
The steps to take to connect the Samsung Galaxy S7 with the Chromecast player and get the necessary connectivity:
Access the web-based WiFi network with your phones
Activate the option to share the WiFi connection on the Samsung Galaxy S7 (this is found in Access point in Settings)
Factory reset the Chromecast
Run the wizard on the player connected to a TV
