Design and features

The new Google Chromecast HD maintains the typical capsule design with an HDMI cable to connect to the TV and a power input via USB Type-C port. The look of the device is essentially identical to that of the current generation and the only difference is in the video quality.

Indeed, this new version of Chromecast supports Google TV but only in Full HD resolution at 1080p with support HDR; compared to the 4K variant, Dolby Vision support is missing and we find a less powerful chipset. Obviously, in addition to the possibility of transmitting the contents, there is support for streaming apps and services such as Netflix, YouTube and so on. There is also the inclusion of remote control (with 2 AAA batteries included in the package), also in this case identical to that of the 4K model, complete with buttons for Google Assistant, YouTube and Netflix.
