In July, Google introduced the Chromecast 4K streaming device in India two years after its initial launch in 2020. In addition to this, the company now has another Chromecast variant with HD support and a cheaper price tag. Here are the details.
The new Chromecast is a compact dongle, which looks similar to the Chromecast 4K variant. Like the 4K model, it can also be paired with a TV via an HDMI port. It’s comes with support for 1080p HDR video streaming unlike the previously released model’s 4K streaming support.
Support for Google TV will allow users to access movies, shows and thousands of apps like Apple TV, Disney+ Hotstar, MX Player, Netflix, Prime Video, Voot, YouTube and Zee5. There’s also support for Google Assistant via remote.
the the remote has a dedicated Google Assistant button (along with buttons for YouTube and Netflix) to easily find content recommendations, weather updates and more with the help of your voice. Additionally, users will also be able to control their smart home lights.
Additionally, Chromecast HD allows users to cast their phones, display Google Photos on the TV, and easily make Google Meet video calls just by casting it on the TV. Users can also get optimized content recommendations, even for kids.
The Google Chromecast with Google TV (HD) is priced at Rs 4499 and will now be available through Flipkart. It’s part of the ongoing Flipkart Big Billion Days sale and can be purchased at Rs 4,199 as a result. To recall, the Google Chromecast 4K retails at Rs 6,399 (Rs 5,999 via Flipkart BBD sale).
It will soon be available through offline stores and comes in a single classic Snow color.
