All about Chromecast with Google TV
The Chromecast with Google TV offers a cleaner design than its predecessors. It now takes the form of a small pebble (white, pink or blue) with a small HDMI cord that protrudes. There is also a USB-C port to power it. Like other Chromecast, therefore, it is designed to be plugged in and hidden behind a TV and never be dislodged again.
Like most of the connected objects from the Mountain View firm, installation is very simple. Once connected to the TV, the Chromecast will ask which network to connect to and to manage this you obviously have to install the Google Home application on your smartphone / tablet. Then just scan the QR and let’s go. During installation, it will even offer you to pre-download streaming services like Spotify, Netflix, Disney + and many more.
It is also possible to install with the remote control that comes with this new version of Chromecast, but it is less practical. On the other hand, it finds all its usefulness once you are on the interface. This one, called Google TV, is based on Android TV. It’s clear and everything seems easy to access. Like Apple and Amazon, you will have access to many recommendations in bulk depending on your user experience, movies, series or genres. This avoids, for example, starting the application and then searching for the desired content to view it.
Google’s solution is not the best performing against the competition, but offers enough power to display content in 4K at 60 frames per second, with HDR10 + and Dolby Vision. This Chromecast is even Dolby Atmos and DTS: X compatible for sound. Of course, Google Assistant is also there to control your TV by voice.
