Google’s Chromecast is one of the most popular products the company makes, as well as being one of our personal favorites. The simple and easy experience of casting content from your device is smooth and fun, but in some cases, it’s nice to use the features built-in to your TV.
The best gifts for Android users
In the past, many TV makers have worked with Google to incorporate Google Cast into their TVs, but in the past couple of months, Google has transitioned the branding for that tech. Now, TV makers and other form factors have “Chromecast built-in” and we’ve been seeing quite a bit of it here at CES 2017.
Just today, Polaroid has unveiled a brand new lineup of 4K UHD LED TVs which all have Chromecast built-in. The TVs are available in 43-inch, 49-inch, 55-inch, 65-inch, and 75-inch sizes, all with 120Hz refresh rates and a 3840×2160 resolution.
Like a standard Chromecast, these new TVs can pull content from Netflix, Hulu, Spotify, Pandora, Google Play Movies, and many other services, all with easy control from your smartphone, tablet, or Chrome-compatible computer.
Pricing on these new TVs starts at $499 for the 43-inch model, and ranges up to $999 for the largest models, but goes up to $1999 for the 75-inch model. Polaroid says that most models will be available during “early 2017” while the 75-inch model will debut sometime during Q1.
