Fighting Roku and Amazon
Although Google gave a few tweaks to its $ 30 entry-level Chromecast in 2018, with the release of Chromecast Ultra, the latest Chromecast reflects the first major update of the Search Giants line of streaming devices since 2016.
Since then, streaming has become more popular than ever before, especially during the coronavirus epidemic, and a raft of new streaming services has flooded the region, including the market., , And From NBC Universal. But during this mountain for streaming, Chromecast remains largely the same. Competitors Roku and Amazon Fire TV surpassed Chromecast’s initial popularity and dominated the market for streaming-TV devices. Combined, Roku and Fire TV represent about 70% of the streaming player market.
This year, Chromecast’s latest version of Google’s Skimpy dongle replaces the one you need to use the phone as your remote. Instead, an improved Chromecast could be a legitimate competitor to the most popular streaming devices available.
And more than that, the new Chromecast supports both HBO Max and Peacock – something neither Roku nor Amazon Fire TV can match. For months, the absence of HBO Max and Peacock from Rox and Fire TV has been a long way off for very popular streaming-TV platforms. Services and device-makers have stalled on the control of data and money generated by your streaming activity, as they will enter a state of power for the next era of TV. Meanwhile, Fire TV and Roku are stuck between users.
Earlier this month, Roku struck a deal with Peacock to add to its devices. But Moore is still missing from the Amazon Fire TV, and both brands of devices lack the HBO Max. Now Google’s new Chromecast has both.
Chromecast’s new remote has dedicated buttons for popular services like Netflix and YouTube, as well as a support button so you can navigate to Google TV app choices via voice commands. The remote comes in three colors: white “snow,” light-blue “sky” and peach “sunrise.”
Google TV is the latest version of the company’s existing Android TV software. Familiar with using a device running Android TV (or anyone who has ever used a streaming device), it has features like rows of convenient recommendations and a watch list where you can bookmark things to watch later. YouTube TV, Google’s live TV service, is strictly integrated, and the device also works with Google’s Nest camera and door bells.
Google’s launch event is raising the voice of tech companies to unveil their new consumer devices in a timely manner for the crucial holiday quarter. The search giant in New York City typically hosts its hardware event, but the company has taken virtual unveiling this year amid a coronavirus epidemic.
Sales of the devices are crucial for Google because the company knows that people are no longer just looking for things on desktop computers. They’re asking their smart speakers to play curated playlists, using their phones to order takeouts from their favorite restaurants, or create a jogging route from the Maps app.
As Google learns more about people and their interests, its ads become more valuable to marketers who pay the company to target potential buyers based on their likes, dislikes, age, interests and location. The company’s huge digital advertising operations, under scrutiny by antitrust regulators, generate a vast majority of Google’s વેચા 160 billion in annual sales.
