Below you will see one of the first official images of the new Chromecast Device with Google TV.
At first glance, this may be a true competitor to the Amazon Firestick 4K that came out in 2018.
Since the release of the Firestick 4K, we have yet to see a device truly compete in terms of price point, 4K compatibility, ease of Jailbreaking, and overall specs.
The new Chromecast Device with Google TV is listed at $49.99, has 4.4GB of internal storage, 2GB of RAM, supports 4K video, has a USB-C port, and other similar features.
You can find the full list of specs on the Chromecast Product Page.
The new Chromecast Device with Google TV is now available for purchase on the Official Google Store Website.
You will notice there are two purchase options available:
- Chromecast with Google TV by itself for $49.99
- Chromecast with Google TV bundled with a 6 month Netflix subscription for $89.99
There are also three color choices to choose from – Snow (white), Sunrise (pink), and Sky (light blue).
Check out our previous news article below for more information on that.
This new Google TV OS appears to be an upgraded version of Android TV OS, which is what devices like the MECOOL KM3, NVIDIA Shield, and newer Android TV Boxes all run.
You will notice how the new Google TV operating system looks very similar to the Fire TV’s interface.
Overall, we’re excited to see how this new Chromecast device with Google TV compares to the Firestick and other streaming devices!
