Many people prefer buying ordinary TVs at a lower price because they want to enrich their functions by adding devices themselves. When saying this, first, we mean TV boxes, TV sticks, etc. You might think that this is less effective. And maybe you’re right. But the thing is that there are tons of similar products and they all make our TV turn into something better. The Chromecast TV stick is among them.
Recently, we learned that Google released a new Chromecast TV stick that supports high-definition streaming. The price of this amazing product is $29.99. At the same time, it comes with a remote. The stick has a classic snow color and runs the built-in Android 12 system.
The new streaming product is named Chromecast with Google TV (HD). Generally, it has the same design as the 4K model, including the same voice remote. The device supports high-definition streaming in 1080 HDR, and Google says it has made some software optimizations to ensure its viewers get the best entertainment experience no matter what TV they own.
In addition to using the adapter to cast (share a user’s Google Photos to a TV or cast a Google Meet video call), you can also use it to browse the web, watch TV shows and movies, and listen to music simply by plugging it into the back of the TV. Of course, once plugged, you have to connect it to a Wi-Fi network. After, you can control it not only via the remote but also via your phone.
Google Nest product manager Jess Bonner wrote in a blog post:
“Today, we’re expanding this lineup with the new Chromecast with Google TV (HD). We built this product with affordability in mind and to help bring all our favorite features of Chromecast and Google TV to more people than ever.”
