Google revealed its latest Chromecast streaming device during a virtual launch event on September 30. The new Chromecast offers a few key upgrades over the older Chromecast and Chromecast Ultra, including access to a built-in app library and a voice remote.

Previous Chromecast models only allowed you to stream apps from a separate mobile device to your TV. With the new Google TV interface, however, the updated Chromecast can stream apps directly. You can also still cast your favorite services from a smartphone or computer if you prefer.

Here are the details on the two biggest questions everyone has about the new Chromecast: when is it out, and how much does it cost?

Google Chromecast with Google TV release date and features

Google has made its latest Chromecast product available for purchase on the same day it was announced: September 30. It's available at Google's own online store as well as a number of major retailers.

The new Google TV platform features an easy to navigate menu system with some solid quality of life improvements over Google's older Android TV interface. The Chromecast also comes with a Google Assistant remote for convenient voice control. 

Like previous Chromecasts, the new model features a slim, puck-shaped dongle design that plugs right into your TV's HDMI port. The device supports up to 4K HDR streaming with HDR10, HDR10+, Dolby Vision, and Dolby Atmos playback.
