Reportedly, Google is developing the new Chromecast with Google TV. The new gadget is namecoded as “YTC” in the Google Home app. The new device is mentioned alongside current Chromecast models. This news strongly suggests that the launch of a new model is coming out real soon. The latest models are Chromecast with Google TV (4K) and Chromecast with Google TV (HD), launching on September 30, 2020 and September 22, 2022, respectively. They are among the best-selling digital media players worldwide.
Also on the Google Home app, these two models are coded as “YTV” and “YTB”. Therefore, it is definitely reasonable that “YTC” is certainly a new Chromecast dongle. The first model was introduced 10 years ago and it’s been a decade since this device came out. The current price for them ranges from $30 to $50, which is both inexpensive and reasonable. It is a huge advantage for it to be commonly used by most users. In comparison, the Apple TV 4K costs you from $129 to $149. These are definitely not affordable for many users.
However, there are notable differences between these two models. Meanwhile the Chromecast works similarly to other Android TVs that give you access to Android TV apps, browsers, Netflix, Google Play Movies & TV, Spotify, the Apple TV 4K might give you access to Apple TV+, Apple Music, iCloud Photos,… Notwithstanding, the Apple device is friendlier with Apple users who are already familiar with iOS, iPadOS and MacOS. However, it does not mean that Chromecast cannot access Apple services. You might also get Apple TV+ on the Chromecast as well as other platforms such as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.
The latest Chromecast models feature several streaming services which are entertaining and educational. They all support 4K videos and Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos,… These are the great features so that you might have the best experience while watching your favorite movies and TV shows. You might also connect to Bluetooth devices such as speakers, soundbars, headphones or mouse and keyboard. However, their limited storage of 8GB is a huge backlash which is not appealing to many users. You might hardly store any movie, music or photo in this device. This is a result of Google’s effort to keep them at a low price. Until now, it is uncertain how the new Chromecast will look like. There will be more rumors and updates in the near future.
