Google now offers a cheaper, 1080p version of the Chromecast with Google TV

Confirming rumors, Google has unveiled the Chromecast with Google TV (HD) device, which offers features of the $50 4K model at a significantly lower price of $30. Unlike the original $35 Chromecast, it comes with a remote control, eliminating the need for a smartphone, although you can control it with a mobile device too. The other key feature is in the name – lower 1080p resolution, albeit with HDR support.

The new device looks almost identical to the 4K model, with an oval shape, a short HDMI cable and a USB-C input. As before, all popular streaming services such as Netflix, Disney+, Apple TV+, HBO Max, Prime Video, YouTube and others are included. It also supports Stadia games, and of course you can stream compatible Android and iOS apps or mirror your Chrome browser tabs.

There is a Google Assistant button on the remote that you can use to control programming, ask questions, or control smart home-connected devices. Plus, it can be grouped with Nest speakers for multi-room playback throughout the home via music apps like Spotify, Pandora, and YouTube Music.

It was rumored back in January that the device could decode high-quality, low-bandwidth AV1 files (the 4K model doesn’t currently support that), but there’s no word on that yet. It will certainly appeal to buyers on a budget, but many people were hoping for a faster 4K model with more storage instead. Chromecast with Google TV (HD) is available now for $30.
