Chromecast GA01919-US w/ Google TV Features, Specs and Manual

 Quick Overview

The new Chromecast by Google now comes with Google and Apple TV that can stream for over 400,000 movies and TV episodes. This device can output up to 4K resolution that is equivalent to ultra-high definition, which is perfect if there is already 4K UHDTV at home and it is also HDR compatible. There is a remote control included but it can also act as a microphone for voice commands or talk to Google.


Here are the Top 5 Features of the Chromecast w/ Google TV 4K:

1. 4K Resolution

This Chromecast now can output up to 4K resolution that is 3840 by 2160 (2160p) or ultra-high definition resolution, but it can also support non-4K TVs and it will automatically downsize the resolution and this is a good feature for older non-smart HDTV or TV.


2. HDR

The Chromecast now supports HDR content and it can be displayed on the TV if it supports HDR too. HDR evens out the contrast and balances the darks and whites in every scene, revealing more detail for a realistic viewing experience.


3. Voice Recognition

The Chromecast together with a built-in microphone can recognize voice commands or any questions that can be asked from google and it can be used to search information or as an assistant.


4. Supports Apple TV

The Chromecast now supports Apple TV streaming services to get exclusive access that is only available to Apple TV but it will require a subscription.


5. Recommendations

The Chromecast can automatically recommend content that is based on what the user often watches. This would allow for less search and browsing of content.

Verdict/Final Thoughts

I would highly recommend this new Chromecast by Google because of the 4K and HDR capability and if you are using an older HDTV with no wifi or smart features this would be a great upgrade instead of buying a new and expensive smart HDTV even if your HDTV is non-4K the Chromecast would still work because it is backward compatible with low-resolution HDTV. But make sure you have a good range between the router and the Chromecast device, as it may drop connection from time to time.
