Now you can use the new MECOOL NOW device for video calling via Google Duo & ZOOM. New MECOOL‘s Google Certified streaming device called MECOOL NOW has a built-in Full HD 1080p camera for video calls and supports the AV1 codec, but it is not all.
MECOOL brand pleasantly surprises with its devices. Last week we got to know Netflix and Google Certified KM2 Android TV streaming device.
Today, the brand is again impressing with the new NOW Android TV streaming device also Certified by Google, but additionally equipped with a Full HD camera for video calls. The device is also available in the TV Top Box format. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen Android devices in this format. TV Top Box is a TV box mounted on top of the TV built-in camera for video conferencing.
At the present time of pandemics and problems with movement (depending on the country), MECOOL NOW is a great device not only for streaming entertainment but also for the contact between loved ones. It is a great device for constant visual contact with the family.
Transform your old TV into True Smart TV
People who do not have Smart TV can transform TV to Smart TV via an additional streaming device. Besides, using MECOOL’s NOW streaming device with the built-in camera you can transform TV into a “true Smart TV”. This is a new trend among Smart TV manufacturers for embedding cameras, for video calls. Recently, TCL showed the new TCL P725 4K Smart TV with a video call camera, which also supports Google Duo. On the other hand, the price of TCL’s P725 is much higher than that of the NOW device, but the functionality is similar.
