Google Chromecast with Google TV (HD) launched in India

Google launched Chromecast with Google TV (4K) in India a couple of months back. Chromecast with Google TV combines Chromecast features with Google TV. Chromecast with Google TV has expanded the company’s lineup (in HD). The company claims this will help bring Chromecast and Google TV to more people.

Chromecast launched with Netflix, YouTube, Google Play Movies, and Play Music. Nine years later, Google TV has 10,000+ apps, including Apple TV, Disney+ Hotstar, MX Player, Netflix, Prime Video, Voot, YouTube, and Zee5. The company says it will keep adding new content.

Google TV was created because new streaming services and apps make it difficult to choose what to watch. With Google’s smarts built-in, like Google Assistant, you can easily find something to watch. Chromecast with Google TV (HD) has the same compact, thin form as Chromecast with Google TV (4K) and is easy to set up.

Chromecast with Google TV (HD) streams at 1080p HDR and has been optimized. Chromecast can cast from your phone, send Google Photos to your TV, and cast Google Meet video chats to your TV.
