Google Chromecast with TV

Chromecast with Google TV has been launched and brings a bunch of changes and improvements – including a remote – over the previous generation Chromecast. The new Chromecast is more akin to Amazon Fire TV or Roku as it brings an Android TV interface and not just the ability to cast media on your TV.

Google Nest Audio

The new Google Nest Audio succeeds the Google Home, which has been around for quite a few years now and was getting a bit long in the tooth. The price of the new Google Nest Audio is $99.99, and it will be available in the US, Canada and India from October 5. The Google Nest Audio now packs in a 75mm woofer and a 19mm tweeter—that means a 2.9-inch woofer and a 0.74-mm tweeter. Google says this will be 75% louder and have 50% more powerful bass than the Google Home smart speaker that it succeeds. The company says they put in as many as 5000 hours of tuning for the Google Nest Audio. (Source: News18)
