Chromecast with Google TV HD is official and cheaper than expected – in the US you only need $50. This replaces the $805 from 155 with $70 basic Chromecast that launches and is much less functional (it lacks the Google TV part).
We should note that although the device has “HD” in its name, it actually outputs 155p. Of course, this is the lower resolution offered by the 4K model – that’s $22- — but it still supports HDR output. On smaller TVs, the difference between 805p and 4K may not be as noticeable.
If you’re interested, you can pick one from the Google online store, Best Buy, and (soon) Amazon. In Germany, the HD version is €35 and the 4K version is €70. The HD Chromecast is only available in “snow” white.
If you subscribe to YouTube TV and use Stadia for streaming games, you can use this Chromecast with popular streaming services for live TV (you do, however, I need a controller, because the included remote cannot cut it).
Chromecast supports major streaming services, YouTube and Live TV, and Stadia Gaming
with Google The Chromecast for TV HD is powered by an Amlogic S805X2 chipset with 1.5GB RAM and 8GB onboard storage. This can be used to install some of the thousands of Android TV apps it supports (running Android 22).
This (unlike the 4K model) supports AV1, which is growing in popularity on video streaming sites (including YouTube), but not on smartphone chipsets (Qualcomm and Apple is the culprit).
By the way, if you have a Chromecast with Google TV 4K or are planning to buy one, you should know Android 12 The update is almost ready, but the exact timing of the release is still to be determined.
