Google Introduces Chromecast Ultra




ultra1Just one year after the Chromecast 2 came out Google has announced a new Chromecast: Chromecast Ultra which is similar to the Chromecast 2 in looks but slightly more powerful and now offers 4K streaming.

Chromecast Ultra is 1.8x faster than the older Chromecast. The new Chromecast Ultra supports HDR, Dolby Vision, and adds Ethernet port for the first time to the Chromecast. The Chromecast Ultra will cost $69.

The Chromecast Ultra looks just like the Chromecast 2 but replaces the Chromecast logo with a Google G in a move to brand all Google items under the Google brand.

Google Play will also be adding 4K streaming sometime in October.

Google also announced a new phone, the Google Pixel, and a new version of the Chromebook that brings more Android features to their laptop OS called ChromeOS.

Google did not announce any changes to the Android TV OS for devices such as the Nvidia Shield. It seems today was all about the Chromecast and Android; however, Android TV fans should not be concerned because Google still seems dedicated to the Android TV OS.
