More than a year after release, Google appears poised to refresh Chromecast (in addition to cranking away on the new Android TV platform). As to what’s improved, FCC filing details are scarce due to the typical 180 confidentiality request. Having said that, we anticipate this is a minor hardware revision given the incoming device sports the same model number as my original streaming+mirroring stick (tho the FCC ID increments from -42 to -2A) – perhaps representing a swapping of internal components for cost savings and/or performance gains.
While I rarely use my Chromecast, it’s priceless when the need arises. And, after another trip that fell mid-series Netflix binge, I sure wish all hotel televisions sported pre-configured Chromecast dongles.
