Chromecast Ultra now with 4K streaming

Google’s revealing a wide product portfolio
today, but the Chromecast Ultra might be the most unassuming sleeper hit of the bunch. The newest member of the Chromecast family
supports 4K resolution video streaming. It’s still a plastic puck, like it’s predecessor,
with an integrated HDMI output, flexible cable and a micro-USB port for power. The device also has HDR powers, meaning with
newer TV sets that support it it’ll support an image designed to show you brighter, more
vibrant scenes across varying lighting conditions for an overall more vivid picture. Chromecast Ultra supports casting from all
the same apps and sources that the existing Chromecast supports, including Android, iOS
devices and Chrome on the desktop. It’s worth considering if you’re in the
market for a Chromecast and don’t yet have any need for 4K – that’s still about half
the price of the entry-level current generation Apple TV, which maxes out at 1080p. Chromecast Ultra is 1.8x faster to load and
launch content, Google says, and it also has an Ethernet port integrated into the power
adapter for reliable wired connection. Google’s Chromecast Ultra is priced at $69
and ships in November.
