Google is likely bringing its Chromecast with TV streaming device to India. This compact streaming dongle was first released in the US in 2020 alongside the Pixel 4a. While the Pixel 4a has arrived in India (and isn’t even available for purchase right now), the streaming stick may finally arrive in India two years later.
Google Chromecast with TV was listed on Flipkart (opens in new tab) and while the listing claims the gadget is “coming soon”, it still doesn’t reveal a release date. According to Flipkart, the next Chromecast could cost Rs. 6,399 in India.
Google Chromecast with TV gives you the best of both worlds that Google offers – it lets you stream content from your smartphone wirelessly to your TV, and it also comes with Google TV that lets you convert any dumb TV into a smart one.
With Google TV, you can access most streaming services and OTT platforms like – Disney Plus Hotstar, Sony Liv, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and more. In addition, it even allows you to download games and other apps from the Play Store. The included remote also comes with Netflix hotkeys.
This Chromecast delivers 4K HDR quality videos at 60 frames per second and even supports Dolby Vision which helps to improve the viewing experience.
Is the Pixel 6a also coming to India?
Google’s track record of bringing devices to India has been abysmal, to say the least. Many of the products including the phones are never introduced to the Indian market regardless of the fact that the Indian market has an insatiable appetite for smartphones and smart gadgets as long as they are marketed and priced accordingly.
As of now, it’s only selling the Nest camera, which recently arrived in the country, the Pixel Buds A-series headphones, and a bunch of smart speakers in India.
Other products, which include the Pixel 4a and other streaming devices, have either been discontinued or are permanently out of stock.
While the Pixel 6 lineup hasn’t officially launched in India either, the Pixel 6a is expected to launch soon. Therefore, the company may introduce the upcoming Pixel phone and Chromecast with TV in India together. However, we can only be sure when the company makes a formal announcement.
