New Chromecast with Google TV Remote

In Android TV 14 beta, images of the new Chromecast remote control with Google TV are found. that reports 9to5Google. The new remote is likely to be for an improved version of Chromecast, which appeared earlier this year. However, we’ve heard little about the device since then.

As you can see in the image below, the button layout on the remote control is different from the current remote control. For example, we see four buttons one below the other on the left, and a larger button on the right. These are likely the volume buttons on the side of your current Chromecast remote.

What’s particularly noticeable is the button with an asterisk at the bottom right. You can associate this new “magic” button with the app yourself. For example, you can stream Spotify or HBO Max in one go. Your current Chromecast remote already has buttons for opening the YouTube and Netflix apps, but it’s not possible to set a shortcut yourself.

Very little is known about the new Chromecast. Therefore, we do not know when the new device will be announced. A major Google-made event will be held on October 4th, but it seems unlikely that the improved streaming dongle will be shown here. On the other hand, the event focuses on the Google Pixel 8, Pixel 8 Pro, and Pixel Watch 2.

The suggested retail price for the 4K version of the Chromecast is €69.99, while the HD version retails for €39.99. However, streaming devices regularly go on sale.
