One of the devices that has created the most expectation in Spain in recent weeks is the new Chromecast with Google TV. This device not only reinvents the, once revolutionary, concept of the Chromecast, but it is positioned as one of the best devices to turn your television of a lifetime into a multimedia center with the best Google experience.
Despite the change from Android TV to Google TV, deep down we continue to have the same operating system for televisions that we have been enjoying on our televisions for years. The face wash of the launcher (which you can install) suits it well, but it does not take away a speck of potential, which means that we can continue doing the things we have been doing before.

The Chromecast with Google TV, great potential for retro and streaming consoles
The new generation of consoles is just around the corner, and in the midst of deciding whether what you want in your life is an Xbox Series X or a PlayStation 5, the increasingly presentvideo game streaming feel a new and interesting possibility. And why not bet on a device like the Chromecast with Google TV?
As we have seen, systems such as Google Stadia and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate are increasingly adapted to television, and it would not be surprising if PlayStation Now arrives sooner rather than later. But it is that in addition to playing modern titles, the device based on Android TV has a hidden weapon, and it is the emulation of old consoles.
YouTube channel ETA PRIME has put the new Chromecast to the test with Google TV and a number of emulators such as Mega Drive, Dreamcast, Nintendo DS, Nintendo 64, PlayStation and PSP with pretty good results, considering that the hardware of this new device is not too ambitious.
A key aspect in the limitations of the Chromecast with Google TV is the internal storage, but thanks to its compatibility withdongles USB C, we can connect a controller (although we can also use one with Bluetooth) and use our games library on a pendrive and hard drive.
The Chromecast with Google TV will go on sale next October 15 in Spain, and for the 70 euros it costs it has gigantic potential.
