Google has silently unveiled its Chromecast 3 streaming device in India. Surprisingly, the new device appeared on Flipkart carrying a tag of “Sold Out” but however it is now available on the same Flipkart website from today 24th October starting mid-night.
Just for a reminder, the Chromecast 3 was showcased by Google along with the other Pixel devices in New York. The Chromecast 3 is designed similarly like its previous iteration and now this time it is furnished with a matte finish, the ‘G’ logo at the centre and a built-in HDMI cable. Unfortunately, the device does not contain a USB Type-C which was expected and the company has decided to manufacture it with the micro-USB cable.
Speaking of the Chromecast 3 connectivity options, it has enhanced its Wi-Fi antenna bandwidth which is now compatible with Wi-Fi 802.11ac (2.4GHz/5GHz) with a maximum antenna gain of 2.1dBi. The Chromecast 3 stick is supported with Bluetooth which can be used to interact through gaming controllers and remote controls. On top of that one can even cast contents from PCs, mobile apps and Chromebook or Macs to your television at 1080p resolution at up to 60 fps with the Chromecast. Moreover, the new generation device from Google can be synchronized with other speakers and play music with the help of Google’s smart devices but this feature will be updated later by the end of this year.
Coming to the Google Chromcast 3 availability, the new Google device can be purchased at the price of Rs 3,499. Sadly the streaming device can be only bought in Charcoal Black colour variant in India. The Chromecast 3 is expected to come live on sale from today in the form of Flipkart’s Festive Dhamaka Days sale. It has exciting offers like if a customer opt to buy the Chromecast 3 they get a one-year Subscription of Sony LIV Premium along with a 6-month subscription of Gaana Plus.
