Chromecast Ultra With 4K, HDR Support & Optional Ethernet Port Costs $69

When Google launched the Chromecast a few years ago it revolutionised the entertainment industry. It gave its customers an easy way to stream their digital content on their HDTV. Years have passed away and Google is trying to keep up with the competition by launching a new one called Chromecast Ultra. As the name Google Chromecast Ultra makes it abundantly clear, the new streaming dongle plays well with your expensive 4K TV as it is capable of streaming 4K resolution content in the original resolution. The Google Chromecast Ultra supports High Dynamic Range (HDR) which means you will get all the little details in the picture. No worries if your TV does not support 4K the Google Chromecast Ultra will optimise the content for your resolution.

Google claims that the Chromecast Ultra is 1.8 times faster in loading videos as compared to previous devices. The Google Chromecast Ultra just like its predecessors works over Wi-Fi but if your Wi-Fi is dodgy you can plug in your Ethernet cable to the dongle and stream your content without the hassle of Wi-Fi. With the Google Chromecast Ultra you will be able to cast the content from your apps to your TV. If the app does not support casting, like Hotstar does you can simply mirror the content.

The Google Chromecast Ultra also works with the new Google Home which is a voice activated speaker powered by Google Assistant. The Google Chromecast Ultra will be available from November in the US for $69 at Best Buy, Google Store, Walmart and Target in the US and will arrive in 15 countries later in the year.
