It was something expected, and we had already talked about this device several times here in Noticias e Tecnologia, but today it’s official, since Google announced the new Chromecast with Google TV a few moments ago. . And to start the good news, know that it will cost you 69.99 €, a price adjusted to what it offers. But let’s see what it has to offer.
For starters, this is the atypical start of a Chromecast, as it comes with Google TV and a physical remote, which Google said was in high demand by users. However, despite Google TV and a remote, streaming via a smartphone works as always on a Chromecast.
Regarding its operating system, it has been revealed that the interface of Google TV is based on Android TV and also offers suggestions for films and series via the “For you” section. Suggestions for new content are cross-streaming services. You can also create your own watchlist on Google TV, which can also be edited on a smartphone or laptop. As usual, there are some Android-based TV apps on offer – over 6,500 pieces should now be available: in addition to YouTube and Netflix, Disney + and certainly Prime Video and many more.
Chromecast with Google TV is now official
Google also uses a compact dongle for the new Chromecast, which disappears behind the TV because it has to be connected to an HDMI port. And like Chromecast 4K, the new Chromecast also offers 4K resolution with HDR, which should allow up to 60 frames per second. In addition, when it comes to HDR, there is now Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos.
The Google Assistant is increasingly in the foreground, as the remote control of the new Chromecast allows to consult the smart assistant via a dedicated button. It’s as powerful as any speaker or smartphone. But besides a button for Google Assistant, there are also shortcuts to YouTube and Netflix.
The new Chromecast with Google TV can be pre-ordered from today, in the markets where Google operates, for 69.99 euros.
