As rumors had already shown, a new Chromecast has been announced at Google’s event, but it came with a friend: a Chromecast Audio dongle.
The new Chromecast comes with a brand new design. With the previous Chromecast, some users probably found that it was a little too big and would sometimes be hard to plug in next to another device or HDMI cable. That is no longer the case. It also has some new features, such as dual-band WiFi that brings better connection and faster speeds.
If you want to upgrade your Chromecast to the new version, you’ll be happy to know that it’s available for the same price the original was released, only $35.
Chromecast Audio is like the Chromecast, but for, well, audio. Instead of streaming video to your TV, you’ll be streaming music to your sound system or speakers. It’s also available for $35.
