Google Store has already begun shipping the Chromecast with Google TV
While today’s Launch Night In event showcased quite a variety of Made by Google hardware, the most tangible device is the new Chromecast, as it’s launching the soonest. In fact, the Google Store has already begun shipping the new Chromecast with Google TV to those who pre-ordered it.
Over 7 years after it introduced that first successful streamer, Google today launched a brand new Chromecast. The Chromecast with Google TV has arrived with a remote, affordable price, native apps, and more. Here’s just about everything you could possibly want to know about the new Chromecast and where to buy it.
Earlier today, Google made the Pixel 4a 5G and its flagship Pixel 5 phones official, making them both the first Pixel phones equipped with an ultrawide lens. Google has shared some camera samples from the two phones that show off the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G’s new capabilities, including Night Sight portraits and the ultrawide lens.
One of the most impressive software features to debut with the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 is “Hold for Me.” The Google Assistant will stay on the line until an actual human being comes on for you to directly interact with.
The latest Pixel phones have arrived and they bring quite a lot to the table, but you’ll be waiting quite a while before you can get your hands on them. In the US, Google has pushed the release date of the Pixel 5 back to October 29.
Verizon’s ‘Pixel 4a 5G UW’ costs $599 and has exclusive white color
Google’s Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 debuted today, both delivering 5G connectivity but with some big differences on the spec sheet. That’s fine considering the Pixel 4a 5G sheds off some pricing, but Verizon just made that a tough call with the “Pixel 4a 5G UW” which costs $599, just $100 less than the Pixel 5.
Google will sell an Ethernet adapter for its new Android TV-powered Chromecast
The new Google Chromecast has arrived, and it’s a better central hub for your entertainment center than ever before, but it lacks one big thing — Ethernet support. Luckily, Google will sell an Ethernet adapter for the new Chromecast with Google TV.
Seven years after the original, there’s a new Chromecast on the market that finally fulfills a request people have had since the original by adding a remote. So, does that mean the $30 Chromecast will be discontinued? Nope — it’s sticking around!
You can use a USB-C hub with the new Chromecast for Ethernet and more, but it’s not easy
Google’s latest Chromecast isn’t as basic as its predecessors. This time around, it’s running on an Android operating system that opens up just how far you can push the streamer. To do that, you’ll need more ports, though. The good news? Chromecast works with USB hubs. The bad news? It’s complicated.
The new Chromecast’s remote can remap its YouTube button to YouTube TV, Music, and Kids
Google’s new Chromecast brings along with it new software and a real remote. On that remote, there’s a dedicated button to open YouTube, but you can remap that Chromecast button to open other YouTube apps.
Google TV comes with a slick ‘apps-only’ mode that reduces homescreen clutter
Alongside the new Chromecast, the new Google TV experience debuts today with a brand new interface that goes heavy on personalized content recommendations. If you prefer a simpler design, though, the new Chromecast features an “apps-only” mode.
Google’s new Chromecast goes on sale today for $49 with a new Android-based OS, a remote, and more. One detail you won’t get right away, though? Google color-matched the batteries for the Chromecast remote to the hardware.
Today, Google announced a new Chromecast and a new platform for the TV, the Android-based Google TV. Along with that, however, Google is also announcing a big change to how it handles your movies and TV shows. The new “Google TV” app starts rolling out today, replacing Google Play Movies and adding new features.
The Android TV platform has been growing pretty rapidly over the past few years, but a lack of the company’s own hardware made many wonder what its future had in store. Today, that question has been answered. The new Chromecast has arrived with a new platform, Google TV, and it’s going to replace Android TV over the next two years.
Google’s new Chromecast is built using recycled plastic, with no black model as a result
Over the past two years especially, Google has been making a bigger push for sustainability with its products. Like its new Pixel and other Nest products, the new Chromecast is built using recycled plastic, and that’s the reason it’s not sold in black.
Google’s original Chromecast delivered a cheap, easy way to get content up on the big screen, but the market has changed a lot over the last seven years. To better compete with the likes of Roku and Fire TV, the new Chromecast with Google TV has arrived: Here’s what it brings to the table.
During Launch Night In, Google unveiled Nest Audio, a major revamp of the original Google Home speaker, and it’s available on October 5 for $99.
With the launch of its affordable mid-range phone in August, Made by Google teased the rest of its 2020 phone lineup. At Launch Night In, the Pixel 5 was announced as Google’s flagship phone for the next year.
Google’s new Android-powered Chromecast has finally arrived, but unfortunately, it’s missing one key feature. At launch, Stadia won’t be available on the new Chromecast with Google TV or Android TV in general, for that matter.
For the past four years, Made by Google has hosted press conferences in San Francisco and later New York to announce its annual hardware lineup. Like many of its technology peers, the company is going virtual for 2020. Here’s how to watch Google’s Launch Night In on Wednesday, September 30th at 11 a.m. PT.
