Officially, it is called Chromecast with Google TV. It’s the all-new media streaming device from the tech giant that has been improving a number of features and services to achieve entertainment that everybody loves. It’s been over seven years since the Chromecast system was introduced and we have witnessed how it has evolved.
The new Chromecast with Google TV is the device codenamed Sabrina we’ve been featuring here. The look and design are the same. It offers an enhanced Android TV experience we’re now calling Google TV. It is where you can enjoy a lot of content from live TV to TV shows to movies via different media apps available or where you have subscriptions to.
The Chromecast with Google TV looks like a pebble. It’s oval-shaped and like the previous models, connects to the HDMI port behind your TV. It can now stream videos set up to 4K HDR at 60 fps with Dolby Vision support for better detail, colors, and brightness.
