Google Home And Chromecast Ultra Will Reportedly Cost $129 And $69By cheatmaster 10:31 Thu, 05 Aug 2021 Comments
We heard about Google Home back in May during Google I/O, a direct competitor to Alexa, Amazon’s smart assistant called ‘Echo’.
Android Police reports that Google will sell the Home assistant for $129, which is priced competitively lower than the Amazon Echo, which currently retails for $179. Although, Amazon’s Echo Dot 2nd gen is coming next month and only costs $50. The only caveat is that it needs an external speaker for playing music.
Likewise, a recent Chromecast Ultra (as it may or may not be called), is a 4K version of the popular streaming device which is assumed to retail for $69. It could be HDR enabled, but other features aren’t mentioned. We also hope that this recent Chromecast is compatible with 120Hz video (60fps) as the current Chromecast isn’t capable of this.
It’s likely that the current Chromecast would remain on sale once this recent version goes on sale. It’d give customers the option to choose a basic model or advanced model with all the bells and whistles.
As far as availability is concerned, it’s possible that both of these devices could be announced at Google’s Oct 4 event where the Pixel phones will also be announced.
