Third-generation Google Chromecast leaked

Third-generation Google Chromecast leaked

Google's new Chromecast, which was presumably not to be announced until the coming october 9 reveal event, was accidentally sold to a Reddit user with the handle GroveStreetHomie. The user also explained what happened and how he was able to get the device. Though we do not expect the new Chromecast to go up in price, the accidental sale is not necessarily indicative of what the final street price might be for the new version. There have been plenty of leaks over the past couple of months, and Google's luck hasn't picked up anytime soon, because U.S. retailer Best Buy accidentally confirmed there'd be a third-generation Chromecast by putting it on sale early.

Google will announce a number of new devices at its October 9 event.

The show will follow in the game's footsteps, giving viewers the chance to decide how the story will progress. Netflix got on board in 2015, acquiring the rights to past episodes and the rights to release future seasons.


The third-generation Google Chromecast was recently purchased by Reddit user GroveStreetHomie.

Based on the images, which were earlier published by Android Police, it appears the new Chromecast will come with a matte finish instead of the glossy design on the previous model. It still has a Micro-USB port for charging. Then when I was at the cashier, they couldn't scan the item because it wasn't in the system yet because the release date is on the 9th of October (Same day as the 2018 Google event) but I guess they put it out too early. Google Chromecast second-generation is now available in India for roughly Rs 3,000. Additionally, the Google logo has been replaced with a simple "G" branding.

And even if you weren't hacked yourself, messages you sent to people who were hacked may still be caught up in the hack. These "tokens" were used to access posts, private messages or let the hacker post anything through the accounts.


GroveStreetHomie said he could not use the device yet, however - it requires an update via the Google Home app that hasn't been released yet. In fact, it looks quite a lot like a thinner, rounder Chromecast Ultra in any case. But we're going to have to wait until the 9th to see what Google has in store for us all, especially where details like pricing and availability are concerned.

In August an FCC filing by Google suggested that a next-gen Chromecast streamer with improved wi-fi connectivity and full Bluetooth support would soon be on its way.
