Chromecast Ultra, Daydream View on sale from Google Store
A couple of items have gone on sale on the Google Store and they’re both Made by Google. We’re not just talking about the Pixel phones that start shipping and actually selling today, but two other sub-$100 devices to flank your Google experience.
Chromecast Ultra, the $69 streaming gadget with 4K capabilities, and the $79 Daydream View VR headset are now able to jump into your cart. As of this post, both devices will ship in the next two or three weeks.
The Chromecast can plug into any TV with an HDMI port — 720p, 1080p or 2160p, whatever the case — to stream content from plenty of points in the world. The Daydream View will need a smartphone with Android 7.1 on it (that software version brings the Daydream VR platform to Android), which is just the Pixel phone at this time.
All that’s left to launch from the Made by Google event is that modular mesh Wi-Fi router called Google WiFi. That’s due out in December.
