The Pixel phones were the highlights of the Google press event earlier, but the two smartphones were not the only things unveiled by the company there. The Chromecast Ultra has been announced at the event, which will be able to stream 4K content with ease. Consider this as an upgraded and beefed up version of the popular Chromecast 2. Along with support for Dolby Vision and HDR10, supported apps include YouTube, Vudu and Netflix for starters. It should also be able to playback Google Play Movies by November.



According to Google, users will experience a general increase in speed compared to the Chromecast 2 (1.8 times to be exact) in any stream. If you do not have a Wi-Fi connection that is fast enough to stream video content at 4K resolution, the Chromecast Ultra can also directly take in an Ethernet cable, thanks to an Ethernet port on the accompanying power adapter. As with the previous versions, Android mirroring on your TV will be supported and so will Google Home. It will go on sale in November with a price tag of $69 in the US.

The YouTube much anticipated subscription music streaming service from Google has been officially announced today. It's called YouTube Music Key (BETA), and it will be in beta for an unspecified amount of time.

 

It brings you an ad-free YouTube experience, along with support for background playback on mobile, and offline viewing too.

All of these perks will cost you $7.99 (for a limited time, the normal price being $9.99) per month. But the nice thing is that if you pay for Music Key, you'll also get a Google Play Music subscription, which gives you access to more than 30 million songs and expert-curated playlists. That in itself costs $9.99 per month, so you're essentially getting two services for the price of one here.

 

 

"You've asked us for ways to listen to music without ads, to keep playing music videos even if you lock the screen or start using another app, and to play music even if you're not connected to the Internet. That's why today we're introducing YouTube Music Key beta, a monthly subscription service starting with the promotional price of $7.99/month (discounted from $9.99/month) that will give you all that-ads-free music, background play and offline viewing. It will also include a subscription to Google Play Music, with 30+ million songs, expert-curated playlists, and in the coming days, the ability to watch many YouTube official music videos right from the app." - Official YouTube Blog

About Google Stadia


On March 2019, Google announced its widely anticipated game streaming service, Google Stadia. The service will allow players to play triple-A gaming titles on multiple devices like smartphones, tablets, and PCs by paying a nominal subscription fee. It will stream the games from Google cloud servers in full HD and has the potential to stream 4K games at 60fps.


What's New?


Google Stadia will be playable on big screen TVs through Google's Chromecast Ultra dongle. Desktop, laptop, Pixel 3 smartphone, and tablet users will be able to access the games directly through the Chrome Browser.


Pricing


Google announced that Stadia will have two pricing models: the Stadia Base and the Stadia Pro.


Players opting for the Stadia Pro have to shell out $9.99 per month while it is free for Stadia Base. Players will need around 35Mbps (minimum) internet speed to avail the Stadia Pro.  For the Stadia Base, you will be able to access the service with speeds of minimum 5Mbps connection. The base version of the service will be capped at 1080p and stereo sound. The pro version will support up to 4K HDR support with 60fps and 5.1 surround sound. So, if you play scratch card games online, it will be worth investing in the Pro version for the superior range of services. Moreover, you will be able to avail special discounts and offers if you are a pro user.


There is a separate Founder's Edition that is currently available for preorder and costs $129.99.


It will include a limited-edition Night Blue controller, Chromecast Ultra (normally sold at $69.99), three-month Stadia Pro subscription and one 3-month Buddy Pass to give Stadia Pro to a friend. You will also get the first chance to claim a Stadia name too.


Additional controllers will cost around £59 each and will be available in three different colours: Clearly White, Just Black, and Wasabi.
