Google impresses with its latest upgrade to the Chromecast, which is now able to deliver full 4K HD content directly to your TV. An upgraded WiFi transmitter has been added to allow the device to stream in 4K, however, an Ethernet port is also included should your wireless network not be able to process the larger file sizes. One great way of using the Chromecast is with the Google Nest Hub or Google Home Mini. Just tell the Google Assistant the type of content you want to watch, and it will magically appear on-screen.

The Google Chromecast Ultra - 4K Streaming Media Player in action

Let’s get started
Google has made setting up the Chromecast as easy as can be:

1. Connect Chromecast Ultra into an electrical outlet and HDMI port on your TV
2. Visit chromecast.com/setup
3. Connect Chromecast to your WiFi network
4. Tap the Cast button in a Cast-enabled app (such as Netflix or YouTube)

Streaming in 4K


The Chromecast Ultra offers you a first opportunity to get 4K content directly on your TV. Probably the best place to get 4K content right now is Netflix, with many recent TV shows being offered in 4K video quality. A small caveat is that you will have to upgrade to the highest subscription package possible to use Netflix in 4K, but this is well worth it if you’re looking to get the most vivid home entertainment experience possible. We recommend using the Ethernet port if you’re experiencing long buffering times over WiFi.


Is the Chromecast right for me?


The Chromecast is perfect for those who are already familiar with how streaming, app-based control and smart devices work. Those who are more familiar with more classic TV interfaces may struggle at first to use the Chromecast and accompanying Google Home App, but are sure to get the hang of it eventually. It’s a simple matter of adjusting to a different way of controlling the content which appears on your screen.


Not just for video


The Chromecast Ultra can also stream both music and pictures, letting your regular TV be used as a one-stop station for all your home entertainment needs. Pandora and Google Play let you stream both internet radio and your favorite music.


You can also use the Chromecast to display your favorite photos on the device, including any 4K resolution picture you may have taken. This can be pleasant to have on loop in the background, as well as giving you an opportunity to look through photos of your family.
