Google launched the latest version of its streaming device, Chormecast 3, on Flipkart. The device is set to cost Rs. 3,499.
The Chromecast 3 does not support 4k or UHD playback and the company is yet to release the 4k version in India.
The Chromecast 3 comes in a new charcoal colour option. The one major difference with the latest Chromecast is that it now supports video-casting at up to 1080p or full HD resolution at 60fps. The earlier Chromecast 2 was limited to 720p at 60fps when it came to video resolution.
It also comes with Wi-Fi 802.11ac (2.4 GHz/5 GHz) and an HDMI and Micro-USB port and is supported on Android, iOS, Mac and Windows systems. Chromecast 3 also comes with support for Google Assistant. Google also claims this new Chromecast has a faster processor with 15 per cent quicker performance compared to the previous variant.
The Chromecast 3 requires a stable WiFi connection to work. Users can also control it with the Google Assistant on Google Home or Home Mini speaker.
As part of launch offers, Chromecast 3 will come with free one year Sony Liv access and six month Gaana subscription. Flipkart is also offering Rs 100 cashback for those who buy Chromecast 3 using a PhonePe account. Axis Bank debit or credit card users will get 10 percent instant discount as part of Flipkart’s Diwali Dhamaka Days sale, which is on till October 27.
