Google did not put the new Chromecast in the spotlights during its end-of-year presentation, but a new version is coming up. The improvements may not be as big as you might expect, but the price has remained low.
The new Google Chromecast
It’s been three years since the introduction of the new Chromecast model, but now there’s officially unveiled a third generation of the popular mediastreamer. This version has an updated design, so you can distinguish it from the old model, with here and there minor technical differences. This variant is fifteen percent faster than its predecessor and offers support for content in 1080p (instead of 720p) and 60 fps. In addition, the device acts as a Chromecast Audio.
The Audio version of this product line is a popular and relatively inexpensive solution to set up a multiroom system and stream music. For example, you do not have to invest immediately in new speakers or receivers. However, this feature will only be launched later this year. For the rest, this is the same media star as you know him. Earlier there was talk about adding bluetooth support, but there is nothing to be true about that. The device costs 39 euros and is available in the Google Store.
