The new device looks nigh-on identical to the 4K model, with an oval shape, short HDMI cable and a USB-C input.
The new Chromecast supports more than 10,000 apps that are on the Google TV platform, including Netflix, HBO Max, Disney+ and Prime video.
The remote is the only thing you'll see on a regular basis and that looks neat and simple.
There's a Google Assistant button on the remote to control programming, ask questions or control smart home connected devices.
Chromecast with Google TV has helped reinvent what simple and easy content discovery on your TV looks like.
The original Chromecast was a small dongle for your TV that was designed to get out of the way.
The Chromecast with Google TV HD is powered by an Amlogic S805X2 chipset with 1.5GB of RAM and 8GB of onboard storage.
The HD Chromecast will launch with Android 12, a slight edge compared with the 4K model.
It'll more than likely do everything the existing model can save for 4K video and, possibly, Dolby Atmos audio.
