The Chrome Unboxed team has descended on New York City in preparation for Google’s hardware event just hours away. Since we’re all here and part of the overall experience is about what happens outside the actual event, we decided to put some serious time into our Instagram account and Instagram Stories.
As you may or may not know, Chromecast runs a varied version of Chrome OS. Once we understood this little-known fact, we began covering Chromecast news here on the site. What you likely do know is Chromecast is Google's most successful consumer product and has become a staple of the smart TV in millions of homes.
At this point, one would wonder if Google has anything new to announce at the hardware event in NYC this coming Monday. We’ll do a roundup up in the next day or so but here’s a quick rundown. Obviously, we will get to see a couple of new Pixel phones. Depending on which rumors you […]
I frequently share my general dislike for Best Buy because of their general lack of knowledge and seemingly inherent disregard for Chromebooks but man, they have become the place to go if you want to see a product before it’s released to the public.
Google has launched a basketful of discounts in their store to get you some summer savings but BH Photo has created a massive list of bundles on Home and Chromecast devices that can save you even more if you’re in the market.
In what can only be considered a glaringly obvious omission, Google Home has not been able to spin up content from your Google Play Movies up to this point. Announced over 2 years ago, Google Home has somehow been incapable of one of the features you most definitely would have expected it to be equipped […]
Join us live and chat with the Chrome Unboxed team as we look in on Google I/O 2018 to see what’s new in the world of Chrome OS, Chromecast, Assistant and more. We’ll be here though both the first keynote and the Developer keynote as well. This is our first attempt at live chatting on […]
First and foremost, let’s file this one firmly under speculation. Big-time speculation. Gabriel published an article outlining a refreshed Gen-2 Chromecast that just passed through the FCC a few days ago and immediately upon that news coming across my screen, I had one thought: Project Yeti.
In typical Google fashion, the company has pushed a new device through FCC certification just days prior to an annual event. Google I/O kicks off Tuesday morning and with the launch of the #madebygoogle brand, the generally software-centric conference has featured more and more hardware over the last couple of years.
It’s that time of year, when the eyes of the sports world all descend on Louisville KY – more specifically, on Churchill Downs. “The most exciting 2 minutes in sports” will happen at 6:34PM today with event coverage starting at 2:30 on NBC Sports. If you are a cord cutter and don’t have access to […]
It was only a week ago that we posted about the Chromecast being able to display the weather over any streaming content when directed to do so by a Google Home device. Though somewhat pedestrian and maybe not very useful, I contended that this feature was a harbinger of coming things. The entire idea of […]
Sure, Smart Displays were all the rage at CES back in February, but that doesn’t mean the biggest display in your home isn’t getting in on some of the Google Assistant love as well. Not long ago, Google rolled out a feature for Chromecast and Google Home that can give all of us a bit […]
Even as I typed that title, I have a hard time buying into it. At the same time, the idea of it has me incredibly excited! According to a site called The Information (which is subscriber-only), news has spread pretty quickly across the internet of a project codenamed Yeti that Google is working on. The […]
