Unboxing Teewe 2
The instructions are clearly mentioned on the box. Inside you will find the compact Teewe 2 HDMI dongle, quick start guide, data cable, travel charger and HDMI extension cable.
Now when compared with the first Teewe dongle, the Teewe 2 is 30% compact, looks better than its predecessor and comes with better Wi-Fi chipset. The new Teewe 2 is also power efficient – you can either choose to power it up using the travel charger (adapter) or plug the USB end into your television USB slot to power up the dongle.
Teewe 2 looks much better and there a micro USB port to power up the device plus reset point.
Teewe 2 is powered by cortex A9 dual core processor with 1GB RAM and coupled with quad core GPU.
The installation process is pretty simple, you just need to follow the instructions. You will need to connect the dongle with your HDMI TV, then download the Teewe app and then proceed with the installation. You will also need to setup your primary Wi-Fi network.
This device works with Android, iOS and windows platform. You can install the app on Mobile, Desktop and there is an extension for chrome browser too.
Teewe 2 offers 60GB of free data usage from Airtel and 2 months of free subscription from Erosnow. You will find the details in the app itself. You can setup the Teewe 2 dongle, languages etc using the app and the app will automatically populate media content from online (YouTube) as well as offline sources (mobile/laptop/desktop etc).
The Desktop app can be downloaded from Teewe.in site, Windows, Mac and Linux platforms are supported. Java run-time is required in case it is missing the same will be installed. You can use the desktop app install on desktop / laptop and stream content from there onto your television. There is an option to mirror the desktop / laptop screen, so what you see on the PC will be mirrored on the TV. The picture quality however is not that great. (Check video review).
If you are using Chrome browser you can install the Teewe chrome extension and mirror the content from the browser onto your TV. The best part is that if there are any videos available on the page you can play that separately / directly on the TV.
With the Teewe 2 app you will be able to access any content from any devices as long as it is connected to the same Wi-Fi network. For example I used my mobile phone, started the Teewe app and was able to browse / play the files that were present on a pendrive that was connected to my laptop (all of these devices connected with Teewe using the same Wi-Fi networks).
You can stream full HD videos without issues, it will play on your TV with sound. If the media content is available online the dongle will access it directly using the Wi-Fi router and if the media content is available offline (on any device connect with Teewe 2) it will stream directly without using internet bandwidth.
You cannot mirror content (everything) from you mobile phone on to the TV, it is however available on desktop app.
Teewe 2 is smaller in size and performs better when compared with the older Teewe dongle. If you are already using the older teewe dongle and happy with the performance, there is no need to upgrade. The company will be rolling out software updates, so the same software with same features that you see on the Teewe 2 will also be available on the older hardware.
Teewe 2 is a good low cost HDMI dongle that converts you ordinary TV into a smart TV. It is available on Amazon.in for Rs. 2,399.
