Next-gen Chromecast to be announced later this month

Google will be unveiling its new Chromecast by the end of the month, according to a report from 9to5Google, which says we can expect to see a host of new features.

The upgraded media-streaming device is set to include improved Wi-Fi, support for content feeds, a new feature called “Fast Play” that the report speculates will enable faster connections and playing of content, and Chromecast Audio.

Not to be confused with Google Cast for Audio, Chromecast Audio is speculated to enable the device to be plugged via auxiliary chord directly into any speaker system. This will also have multi-room support.

Exactly what all these new features amount to remains unclear, but with a Google event scheduled for September 29, we won’t have to wait long to find out.
