What you need to know
- Google is set to debut a Chromecast Ultra replacement.
- This new dongle will re-focus on media over apps amd wlll run the soon-to-be-rebranded Android TV.
- The company will also look into using the Nest brand on the Chromecast sequel.
It's not super clear when Google will release the new dongle. It could happen around the Pixel 4a's release this month, or it could happen earlier, or later. As Google's Pixel buds still dropped just mere weeks before the 4a is predicted to, it's more than clear that the proximity of Google's product releases don't influence each other's launches.
As for the Android TV powering this dongle, Google may also be rebranding that to Google TV, if another report proves accurate. It's a season of rebrandings.
