Google has announced the Chromecast with Google TV (HD), a new version of its popular series of streaming dongles that only supports up to 1080p streaming but comes at a lower price and still includes a remote. More affordable than the original Chromecast, Google’s Chromecast with Google TV (HD) is available for $29.99 in 19 countries now, with more regions coming soon, in the company’s classic Snow color. Six months of Peacock Premium are also included for current purchases.
We’ve kept that same spirit with all of our Chromecast devices, and Chromecast with Google TV (HD) is no exception. It comes in the same compact and thin design as the Chromecast with Google TV (4K), tucks neatly behind your TV, and set-up is fast and simple.
And of course, you’ll still have access to your favorite Chromecast features like casting from your phone, sharing your Google Photos to your TV, and casting your Google Meet video calls to TV, so you can join the team meeting or lecture from the comfort of your couch.
Chromecast with Google TV (HD) streams in high definition with 1080p HDR, and we’ve made software optimizations behind the scenes to make sure you get a smooth and snappy experience no matter what TV you’re watching on.
The first-generation Chromecast launched in 2013 for $35 and has since been succeeded by various models, including Chromecast with Google TV (4K), a $49 dongle that Google released in 2020 with support for 4K streaming. Google’s new Chromecast supports more than 10,000 apps on the Google TV platform, including Netflix, HBO Max, and more.
