Google unveils new version of Chromecast

Google has unveiled a new version of its Chromecast streaming TV dongle, with a fresh design that make it easier to plug into crowded ports.

The new Chromecast supports the latest Wi-Fi standards and adapts more easily to changing Wi-Fi conditions, ensuring viewers enjoy higher quality video with less buffering.

Google has also updated the Chromecast app to make it easier to find content. For Cast-enabled apps that aren’t already on a users’ phone, Chromecast will suggest one for you. The updated Chromecast app is rolling out on Android and iOS over the next few weeks.

In addition, Google has also announced Chromecast Audio, a small device that plugs into existing speakers, allowing users to stream their favourite music, radio and podcasts over Wi-Fi, similar to Chromecast.

Tor Helge (Kristiansen, EVP Principal Architect, Conax) will be asking ‘How to secure Android TV?’ at this year’s OTTtv World Summit (9th – 12th November 2015 Millennium Gloucester Hotel, London)
