Google Chromecast Updates To Improve Wi-Fi And Give HDR Controls

Google has updated Chromecast with Google TV, giving more “advanced video controls”, including an option for HDR.

Once you download the rather sizeable (160mb) update and restart your device, you’ll be able to switch between Dolby Vision, HDR, and SDR, and tinker with resolution options at the following refresh rates.

  • 4K (60Hz / 50Hz / 30Hz/ 25Hz / 24Hz)
  • 1080p (60Hz / 50Hz / 24Hz)
  • 720p (60Hz / 50Hz)
  • 1080i (60Hz / 50Hz)
  • 576p (50Hz)
  • 480p (60Hz)

The other update features are slight, but nonetheless useful, including: HDMI hot-plug improvements that detect the best TV settings available; increased Wi-Fi for 5G network; improvements in Bluetooth audio stuttering; streamlined HDMI-CEC configuration; and an updated security patch.

HDR10+ support is not included with this update, but has been promised soon.
