Google launched its 3rd-generation Chromecast dongle today, still priced at a very reasonable $35.
The new Chromecast comes in either Chalk or Charcoal, but really, the device hasn’t changed all that much. In its blog post, Google states this Chromecast has a 15% improvement in hardware speed, plus they say, “Our newest Chromecast supports smooth streaming in 1080p at 60 frames per second.”
On top of that, Google says you’ll be able to add this refreshed Chromecast to speaker groups, meaning multi-room audio goodness. Sadly, that’s coming “later this year.”
