[Update: Beta update rolling out, downloads] Google says a fix is coming on January 18th for Wi-Fi problems associated with Cast devices

Friday, January 19th, 2018

A few days back we reported that the Google Home Max (among other Cast-enabled devices) might be connected with some recent reports for widespread Wi-Fi troubles. Google has indirectly responded to this issue in a page on the Device Support section for Google Home support, in which the company acknowledges the existence and cause of the problem, promising a fix tomorrow. 

This particular issue has picked up a lot of traction in the news, having been reported on by outlets covering a range from Engadget to The Sun, so it's not just a niche problem.

[Deal Alert] Save a few bucks on select Google Home and Chromecast Ultra combos, I guess ($10-$30 off)

Wednesday, January 17th, 2018

Google is offering discounts on particular combinations of its Google Home and Chromecast hardware, but the deals are just kind of okay, and frankly a bit of a letdown with all the big price slashes from the holidays still fresh in our memories.

Nonetheless, if you're in the market for a Google Home device or a Chromecast Ultra, you can save a little bit of money with some of these combinations:

  • Save $30 on a Google Home Max plus a Google Home Mini ($418), which is sort of like getting the Mini for twenty bucks (though it had just been $30 over the holidays all by itself, but we're trying not to think about that).

30 days later, Chromecasts still aren’t available on Amazon

Saturday, January 13th, 2018

30 days ago, Amazon announced that it was in the process of assorting Apple TVs and Chromecasts to start selling them again. Since then, the Apple TV and Apple TV 4K have been available and sold on the site, but the Chromecast and Chromecast Ultra are still showing as "Currently unavailable" from Amazon, with no third-party sellers at all. Even searching for "Chromecast" on Amazon doesn't bring up the product pages linked above, you'd have to know the URL to see them.

S?LIS SO-2000 and Jensen JVA-500 bring the Google Assistant to your bedside clock

Wednesday, January 10th, 2018

The Google Assistant seems to be in everything at CES 2018 and the latest trend right now, beside the new smart display form factor, is to put it in desk or bedside clocks. We already saw iHome's iGV1 that looks like a Google Home sawn in half with a hidden LED display, and now we have two new clock speakers to look at from SōLIS and Jensen.

SōLIS already makes a few Chromecast speakers and it's now graduating to the Google Assistant rank.

Haier, owner of GE Appliances, announces Android TVs at CES 2018

Monday, January 8th, 2018

If you don't follow the thrilling and fast-paced world of home appliances, you might be forgiven for never having heard of a company called Haier. The China-based consumer electronics and home appliance manufacturer made headlines in 2016 when it announced it would be buying General Electric's appliance division for $5.4 billion. Aside from making kitchen appliances such as refrigerators, dishwashers, and microwave ovens, Haier's product line also includes washers, air conditioners, televisions, and even computers, smartphones and Chromebooks.

LG announces Chromecast-enabled soundbar and Assistant speaker

Thursday, December 28th, 2017

Just having things around that make sound isn't good enough anymore. If your speakers can't stream from the internet or tell you the answer to "life, the universe, and everything" then why even have them? LG has announced two new speakers that check all the boxes. The SK10Y soundbar has Chromecast support, and the LG ThinQ Speaker is powered by Assistant.

The SK10Y soundbar is designed to pair with your home theater system.

Opinion: Google has quietly become one of the world’s most important hardware companies

Thursday, December 28th, 2017

As we say goodbye to 2017, think back to five years ago. Five years ago, if I had told you Google was one of the world's most important consumer electronics manufacturers, you'd have laughed at me.

Mentally put yourself in 2012: Google's just announced the fourth Nexus phone, the Nexus 4, running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, along with the Nexus 10 tablet. Six months prior, at Google I/O, it unveiled the Nexus Q - a device intended to be some sort of smart entertainment hub, and proceeded to never launch it to the general public.

Amazon will start selling Chromecast and Apple TV after pulling them in 2015, Google Home still not available

Thursday, December 14th, 2017

Amazon removed the Chromecast, Nexus Player, and Apple TV from its online store in 2015. Amazon said the products' lack of Prime Video support could confuse buyers, but most saw it as a thinly-veiled attempt to boost sales of its own Fire TV lineup. Since then, Google and Amazon's feud has only escalated.

The recent drama around the Echo Show (where Amazon implemented its own YouTube player without Google's approval) and Amazon's removal of some Nest products seemed to be the final straw.

Monday, December 11th, 2017

Black Friday is well behind us now, but it doesn't look like the discounts are stopping anytime soon. All the better for those of you who missed out on a deal, had other priorities to purchase in November, forgot to get a gift for someone, didn't have a use for something but now want it, or maybe bought a product and want another one of it now.

One of the deals that's resurfacing is for the Chromecast Ultra, the 4K and HDR version of the beloved Chromecast.
