Google introduced the all New Chromecast at an event in San Francisco Monday and it's a nice upgrade over the original version. Featuring a bold new design in three colors with a built-in HDMI cable and offering 802.11ac Wifi, as well as the 5GHz channel. Probably the biggest change from a design standpoint is that instead of the Chromecast plugging directly into your HDMI port, instead it hangs as a dongle from the cable. This allows more flexibility in tight spaces. The new Chromecast costs $35 and offers all the features of the original to cast your video to various screens from a gigantic assortment of apps plus the ability to mirror your screen and more.
Also introduced is 'Chromecast Audio', which is basically Chromecast that works with select speakers and lets you play music from your phone, tablet or other device and hear it over your audio system of choice just like regular Chromecast lets you watch video. Chromecast Audio also costs $35 and works with all your favorite music apps such as iHeartRadio, Pandora and Google Play Music with more to come in the future.
