Best USB-C Hub for Google Chromecast with Google TV

0

By now, you all might know about the storage issues faced in Chromecast by our earlier article. The Chromecasts comes with a mere 8GB of storage, and most of its storage is consumed by Google TV itself. It doesn’t have an extra USB type C port or a memory card slot, making storage expansion difficult. As we said in the article, only USB type C hubs that can pass power can be used to expand storage in Chromecasts. Today, we will list the best USB type C hubs that you can use with your Chromecasts.

Before connecting your pendrive or another storage medium with the USB hub, make sure to format it as FAT32. To treat it as internal storage, the Chromecast will notify an option to reformat it as ext3 once you connect these hubs to the Chromecast. You can choose the option if you wish to do so. Following are the best USB type C hubs that are currently available in the market.
