Google announces Chromecast Ultra : 4K version of its streaming deviceOctober 6, 2016
The design of the Ultra is very similar to the standard Chromecast; a flat hockey puck design with the ” G” logo instead of the Chrome badge, and a small attached HDMI cord so the device can easily hide behind your TV. You can still mirror content from your Android phone and laptop, and it will work in concert with Google Home once it’s released.
The price will be the biggest difference, as the Ultra will cost you double the price of its predecessor, coming in at $69 in the US. The Chromecast Ultra will be released in November in the US, and will be available in 15 countries around the world.
