Google officially unveils its new Chromecast streaming media device

All #madebyGoogle event devices to expect Pixel 3 Chromecast 2018 and more

It keeps the same dimensions but squeezes out a 15 per cent improvement in processing speed and now supports streaming 1080p at 60 frames per second, something that at times could be temperamental on the previous model.

"We launched our first Chromecast in 2013 with the aim to make it easy to get your favorite content right from your phone to your TV". However, these rumored updates to the third generation Google Chromecast found in FCC filings, like Bluetooth and faster 5 GHz WiFi capabilities, are not listed in the tech specs on the Google Store website.

Some rumored details about the new Chromecast leaked months ago, like pretty much all the other newly announced products. Walmart just sold the unreleased Chromecast as well, a few days before Google's fall press conference. While Google did not talk about the new Chromecast during their event they did quietly make a blog post about it and post the Chromecast for sale in their store.

It crushed the global box office as well, earning $125.2 million, led by South Korean receipts of $16.3 million. That's the best October debut in box office history beating " Gravity's " 2013 debut by almost $25 million.

The new Chromecast features a matte black color option as well as a chalk (white) variant. In addition, the new dongle supports Chromecast Audio technology. As a result, the only tangible streaming advantage that the new Chromecast has over its predecessor is support for 1080p60 video.

On top of that, Google says you'll be able to add this refreshed Chromecast to speaker groups, meaning multi-room audio goodness.

Google on Tuesday introduced its newest Chromecast dongle for media streaming.
