In addition to all-new Chromecast Audio, Google also released their new Chromecast at yesterday’s nexus event. Same as previous Chromecast, it also costs $35, but new circular design and faster WiFi bring you more surprise.
The new Chromecast measures measures 51.9 x 51.9 x 13.49mm and weights 39.1g. As we can see from the images, the media streamer has the same size and similar design with Google’s Chromecast Audio, but it comes in three optional colors in order to meet different senses of style.
Using integrated HDMI cable, you can easily connect Chromecast with your HDTV, and built-in WiFi 802.11ac allows the media streamer to join your home network in order to cast your favorite TV shows, movies, music and games on your TV. And the 2.4/5GHz WiFi support and a built-in adaptive antenna system ensure it casts you smooth and high-resolution videos.
Moreover, you can use your phone to remotely controls your cast or find out various fun content from popular apps like YouTube, Hulu, Netflix, Spotify, Twitch, TED and more. When you’re not casting, you can turn your TV into a large picture frame that displays your photos from Google Photos, Facebook, Flickr and more. Apart from that, the media streamer also mirrors your Android phone, tablet or Chrome browser’s screen to your HDTV.
The new Google Chromecast has been available for preorder for $35 USD. If you’re interested, jump to Google for its more details.
