Google has just introduced its new Chromecast with Google TV, this model being an economical version of the one they launched several months ago. Of course, being a version with a lower price, it also comes with certain cuts and, unfortunately, the main one is the resolution at which the contents will be seen on televisions without SmartTV.
Google TV is the operating system for smart televisions that has come to end the aesthetic reign of Android TV. The first time we saw this redesign was with the launch of Chromecast with Google TV, this being the first of its name and the one that has opened the doors to this new device that dispenses with the design of AndroidTV.
The new Chromecast with Google TV (HD) has the crutch in parentheses that indicates the maximum resolution at which it can play the content. This resolution is Full HD or 1,920 x 1,080 pixels at 60 frames per second unlike Chromecast with Google TV (4K) that boasts the typical resolution of current Smart TVs.
Leaving aside the issue of resolution that puts some people off, the new Chromecast with Google TV (HD) arrives with a similar if not identical design to its older brother. The leaks have been right and, for quite some time, it has been rumored with the design being one of the most filtered aspects.

Another of its characteristics and that makes it a device that comes from Google is that it has several audio and video formats. The video list is headed by HDR10 +, HDR10 and ends with HLG. For audio, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby Atmos are available.. All this makes it very well served in formats.
The connectivity of the new Chromecast with Google TV (HD) is put by the 802.11ac WiFi connection compatible with 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands, in addition to having Bluetooth 4.1. To connect to televisions, the HDMI port of the device itself is used and to connect it to the electrical current, it has a USB type-C port.
The new Chromecast with Google TV (HD) is not yet available to buy, but it will arrive in authorized stores on October 18. The price will be 39.99 euros in the only available model that will be in white. It may be competitively priced, but the Amazon Fire TV Stick deals will give you some fierce competition.
