In 2020, Google launched a new version of its popular Chromecast streaming dongle. The Chromecast with Google TV — its official name — came with a remote control, which was a first for the line. It also supported 4K streams.
Today, Google is launching a downgraded version of that model. The Chromecast with Google TV (HD) now exists as a cheaper way to enter the Google TV ecosystem.
