Google has grown to be the world’s top tech company that also offers a few smart home and entertainment devices. But in a disappointing manner, the global tech giant takes years of time to launch new products in India. Following the same unpunctual trend, Google has launched the new Chromecast with Google TV in India that was launched in the US back in 2020. Nonetheless, we have got a new media streaming device that can stream up to 4K video quality and can raise the bar for Amazon, Xiaomi and others.
Designed for easy content discovery, the new Chromecast with Google TV can make a non-smart TV smart and with improved features and picture quality. Google TV is a kind of OS that helps you navigate your entertainment choices, and brings together local and global content in one place. Google’s first media streamer Chromecast was launched in 2013 and the company has come up with a worthy upgrade that we needed much earlier.
Google TV entertainment experience
Google TV experience brings together movies, shows and more from your apps and subscriptions and organizes them just for you so that you can make a choice easily and even bookmark some for later. You will get some good movie or TV recommendations based on your subscriptions and watched videos under the Google TV’s ‘For You’ tab. Adding videos to your Watchlist from a phone or laptop is possible so you can do it just after you leave the office.
The device comes with a voice remote that will make it easy for you control the smart TV features. You will be able to see results from your favorite apps, like Apple TV, Disney+ Hotstar, MX Player, Netflix, Prime Video, Voot, YouTube, and Zee5, etc. It has a dedicated Google Assistant button that can help you find something to watch, answer everyday questions or play your favorite artist on YouTube Music all with simple voice commands. The remote also has dedicated buttons for popular streaming services, YouTube and Netflix. Furthermore, it has programmable TV controls for power, volume and input.
4K Picture Quality
The Chromecast with Google TV neatly plugs into a TV’s HDMI port and can stream crystal clear video in up to 4K HDR at up to 60 frames per second. Additionally, Dolby Vision offers extraordinary color, contrast and brightness to enhance the TV watching experience. The media streaming device also supports HDMI pass-through of Dolby audio content.
Pricing and Availability
As per Google India’s latest blog, the Chromecast with Google TV will be available for purchase in India at a price tag of INR 6,399 on Flipkart from today on. It will be coming to other retail outlets in the near future.
