Google Appears to Be Working on a New Chromecast with Google TV

New Chromecast with Google TV Speculation

Rumors of a new Chromecast with Google TV device have been swirling for quite a while now and it appears more evident than ever that this is likely on the horizon.

According to recent information on the Google Home App, there are indications that Google is working on a new version of the popular device. The first iteration of the Chromecast with Google TV was released in 2020 with 4K capabilities and a 1080p model was released in 2022.

Luckily, the appearance of a mystery device, labeled “YTD,” alongside the existing Chromecast models in the Google Home App suggests that a new TV dongle is on the horizon. While it’s not confirmed whether this device will be released, many streaming enthusiasts are eagerly anticipating an updated Chromecast with Google TV.

In the world of Google TV, there have been instances where upcoming devices make an appearance in the Google Home app. These instances provide a glimpse into Google’s ongoing efforts to improve the Chromecast and Android TV experiences. One such instance occurred last year when a device with the codename “YTC” was discovered, which was referred to as a “Chromecast with Google TV.” However, this device never made its way to the market.

In another instance, a beta version of Android TV 14 unveiled a new Chromecast-like remote with an intriguing customizable Star button. This feature hinted at Google’s intention to release a new Chromecast dongle, further fueling users’ anticipation for a hardware refresh. Combined with the recent appearance of the mysterious “YTD” device in the Google Home app, it’s clear that Google is actively working on developing a new Chromecast device.

While details about the specific features and improvements of the new Chromecast with Google TV are not yet available, users hope for enhancements to the Google TV experience. The current Chromecast model already offers the ability to browse media using a remote and access a wide range of Android TV apps.

However, users would appreciate increased storage space to download and store their favorite apps and content, as well as improved performance to ensure smooth and seamless streaming. With enhanced Google TV features, users can expect a more immersive and personalized viewing experience.

Many have been eagerly waiting for an update from Google on a new device and while there has been no official announcement, this brings high hopes that we can expect a Chromecast with Google TV sometime in the near future.
