New Cheaper Chromecast With Google TV Now Available

We’ve already discussed how the Chromecast with Google TV is one of the best ways to experience Stadia on the big screen at home. Despite that, some people didn’t really have the need to spend full price on one for varied reasons. Those with a 1080p display wouldn’t get the most value, for example. Others simply didn’t see the value, considering that only a couple of apps intersted them. Today, that changes, as Google has just released the heavily rumored 1080p version of the Chromecast with Google TV.

This new version of the device has all the features of the 4K version, but limits output to 1080p instead of 4K. This helps reduce the price significantly, making this cheaper alternative only $29.99 instead of $49.99 like the 4K version.

The official store page highlights the uses of the Chromecast with Google TV, adding Google Stadia as a key feature alongside Netflix, Spotify, YouTube and more. Even so, at the bottom of the page, addition items that pair well with the device are included, showcasing a Stadia controller as a suggestion.

Suffices to say that Google is pushing Stadia as its own platform and service, adding the gaming bonus to its offerings via the Chromecast. This new 1080p version of the device, keeps lowering the entry point for those that don’t own a compatible TV or device, and want to enjoy gaming without committing to an expensive console.
