Wow - 55 million Chromecast devices have been sold so far

Google's Pixel event is running full-steam right now, with tons of newsworthy tidbits flying in the air available for just about anyone to reach up and grasp.

One of the intriguing ones pertains to Google's neat little Chromecast dongles, which have reportedly sold in the tens of millions - 55 million units, exactly.

While the grand total was not broken between regular Chromecasts and those sweet 4K-ready Chromecast Ultra, there's no doubt that Google is one of the major players in the streaming market, and we all know what this means - a new, updated Chromecast is probably on its way for the near future.

They don't work better than the old hdmi connection. For sales Google gave us something that cost more work's less efficient.

The ultra supports the latest HDMI spec, and it has wifi ac support. Clearly you don't know what you are talking about. Plus with the new Google Home mini's, users can just use their voice to play music, movies, videos, and more to their Chromecast, by just using their voice.

I have the ultra and it disconnected too many times for me on A Nexus 6p and Nexus 6. A wise arse like you telling me what I did not experience on what device really I like Google OK., but I am not a blind fan boy. Google the issues of disconnection that people have had or go to the app store Mr fanboy. NEW ROUTER ALSO.... TREND NET AC1700
