Since its introduction in 2013, Google’s Chromecast devices have been an easy way to turn your TV into a smart TV. And while the Chromecast hasn’t fundamentally changed, the change to making it a proper streaming player has changed the idea of what a Chromecast is.
Google made a couple of announcements at their, “Launch Night In” event for this year, where they showed off the Pixel 5, Pixel 4a 5G, Nest Audio and more.
Back in April, Google and Amazon announced they were working together on adding Chromecast support to the Prime Video app and an official YouTube app for Fire TV.
Google and Amazon have announced that the two companies are working on an official YouTube app for Amazon’s Fire TV devices and Fire TV Edition TVs and also add support for Chromecast in the Prime Video app.
Google has unveiled “the future of gaming” with their game stream service called Stadia.
After numerous leaks, Google has officially announced their latest hardware offerings with the Pixel 3 & Pixel 3 XL, Pixel Slate, Home Hub and more.
Today marks five years since Google first launched the Chromecast back in 2013.
