Product Description

Google Chromecast is the little dongle that's made a big difference in our everyday viewing habits. The 3rd generation Chromecast was recently released and here's what you can expect from the latest edition of this small but hugely entertaining device.

Plug & play

The 3rd generation Chromecast, like its predecessors, remains the epitome of simplicity. It really is a piece of cake to plug directly into your television, while the guided set up process is still short and sweet. You can be streaming in a matter of minutes.

A new design

New Chromecast, and a slightly new design to go with it. The glossy plastic casing of Generation 2 has been replaced with a matte finish, although given the dongle is so unobtrusive, you'll probably never notice this cosmetic change.

Faster than before

Depending on the strength of your internet connection, streaming on the Chromecast has always been quick and reliable. The new generation takes it up a notch, with Google saying that this device is 15% faster than its predecessor. 

Stay tuned

The 3rd generation Chromecast will have the ability to play music with other connected speakers paired with Google’s smart gadgets. Stay tuned!

Your laptop on your TV

Use the Chromecast to mirror your laptop screen onto your TV, using the Cast function on your laptop's Chrome browser. Who needs glasses when you can surf the web or see other media on your big TV screen?

A newer model Google Chromecast with Google TV (4th gen) was released in November 2020.
