Google’s new Chromecast has leaked so extensively that people have already been buying it at stores, but today the company officially introduced the new Chromecast. Featuring ‘Google TV,’ a new variant of Android TV, the device supports 4K HDR, includes a remote control, and retails for just $50.
Google TV is essentially a smarter version of Android TV. There’s an emphasis on allowing you to access shows from across a variety of services all in one place. The company also says there’s a new watchlist feature that works throughout all streaming services. The company does say Google TV will be available on other Android TV devices at a later date, but unsurprisingly is starting out with its own hardware.
The new Chromecast is available in three colors (snow, sky, sunrise) for $50.
