The new Google Chromecast in the Test

presented As a Google last October, new devices, new phones, new Smart-Home devices and a new Tablet. For the new TV Streaming Adapter, Chromecast, was in the hour-long presentation.

At the time, it may have not located. Two sentences would have been enough: "We also have a new Chromecast. He looks a little more elegant and is a little bit more powerful, but in everyday life still, as always."

When the news it not that the event planner thrown out of the program, or even never considered surprised.

Marked a change of strategy

As a Google 2013 presenting the first Chromecast, marked it as a first Hardware device of the tech group with a distinctive change in strategy. Reminder: For Smartphones and Tablets, Google has continued on Hardware partners, which together Nexus devices have been developed.

The Chromecast was awesome. He made every TV a Smart-TV. At the push of a button you could send Videos from the phone to the TV and the cell phone, then even off. The Chromecast took over all the work. Provided that the video service of its own confidence. But with Netflix, Youtube, and many TV Apps it lacked, never Offered.


I bought my Chromecast at the time, somewhere at an airport. In Switzerland, the Stick came with plenty of delay. A bad habit, Google devices, until today. It has managed all in October 2018 and innovations presented only the Chromecast in Switzerland, and only now, speaks volumes.

In our household of five-year-old Chromecast of at the time, still does good service. Lately, the Apple TV has won (thanks to the remote control) to something of the upper hand, but the Chromecast is still in our ancient Samsung TV.

that's Why the Chromecast comes to me immediately, if someone asks me to a tip for a Smart-TV or even for Gadget-favorites. The Installation is easy, the operation (no matter whether with Android or iOS), and once plugged in, you have to take care of never. The Chromecast worked all the years without problems, and without that I change would have any settings or me would have had to annoy. Who can claim to his Smart TV?


The Chromecast device is and remains just for the price of around 40 Swiss francs a top pick and an absolute Carefree. This is still the case for the first Generation of 2013, the second of 2015 and the new of 2018.

someone Had been in our Original Chromecast of 2013 secretly against the latest exchanged, it would never have occurred to me. In the technical Details, it means that the new Chromecast is more powerful, but the Old joined never noticeably limits.


I feel with my Chromecast from the 2013 not in the mood to buy a new one, it shows how little has been invested in recent years in the development of the Streaming Sticks. 2015, a model for Audio came about (but set back) and 2016 for 4K (for gabs but since then, no more Updates).

While Google occurs when the development of the Chromecast on the brake pedal, and Smart TV to become better. Many have built-in Chromecast feature (and soon Apple's Airplay). And also special TV boxes like the Apple TV offer a lot more functions.

And a side note: the new Chromecast still has a Micro-USB connector, it is in times of USB-C is a last proof of how far to the rear of the Chromecast is slipped on Google's priority list.

conclusion: is The new Chromecast is a great product for those who want to make an old TV a little smarter. But the chances are good that the one who has such a need, has bought in the last five years already have a Chromecast. (
