Google Unveils Updated Chromecast Device



Google’s massively popular Chromecast with over 20 million sold finally gets an updated version. The new version has 5GHz 802.11AC WiFi capability for improved streaming speed, will carry the same price tag as the original ($35 USD), has a slightly larger body (now rounded) and will be available in three different colors. Most users tend to place the Chromecast behind the HDTV anyway so looks are not of paramount importance but it is an interesting option to have for those who plug their device on the side of the screen and leave it exposed.

Google has also announced the launch of a new device called Chromecast-audio which plugs into speakers and can output audio from a smartphone.
