October 11, 2018It’s been three years since Google last refreshed the Chromecast, and today the tried-and-true streaming dongle is finally getting an update. The new, third-generation Chromecast has an updated design, trading in the glossy colors and Chrome logo for a matte black finish and Google’s trademark G. But more importantly, it’s also getting some small tech and feature improvements. Google says the new Chromecast is 15 percent faster, which isn’t much, but is apparently enough to add support for streaming 60fps video at 1080p, instead of 720p like last generation. This Chromecast is also getting the ability to act like a Chromecast Audio and let you play music in sync with other speakers connected to Google’s smart devices; that feature won’t launch until later this year, however. The Verge We have a chromecast in every room and while I love the device and its reliability and speed there is not enough features for me anyway to upgrade from the ones I bought 3 years ago.
