The Chromecast Ultra is expected to cost $69 when it rolls out after Google's hardware event on October 4.
Google has rolled out versions of its popular products like YouTube and Chrome, which are specially designed for people who do not have access to high-bandwidth internet.
A new report says Google's long-rumored mash-up of Android and Chrome OS will show up at the company's hardware event on October 4.
Android debuted on Sept. 23 eight years ago, though Google has cooked up some type of celebration for Saturday.
The timing first nicely with the upcoming launch of Google's Pixel phones, which should lead the parade of compatible hardware.
Vint Cerf is considered a father of the internet, but that doesn't mean there aren't things he would do differently if given a fresh chance to create it all over again.
First there was Google Now. Next, Google's new Allo app includes Google Assistant, a capable digital personality that is eager to assist.
It's also looking like the term Google Now is going away with the company uniting its effort behind the new Google Assistant.
Leaning heavily on Google's new Assistant, Google hopes Allo will finally give it a messaging app that really sticks.
Sending photos is much easier if you and the recipient are using Google's all-in-one image service.
Both the smartphone and Android Auto versions of the app will let you know the speed limit while driving.
Google hasn't said what's coming yet, but if you sign up for the initiative you'll be part of the group that's in the know.
Researchers can submit entries from now until March 14, 2017.
It's another sign that Google is abandoning the longtime Nexus name in favor of 'Pixel' for its upcoming smartphones.
Chromebooks' five-year end-of-life policy—if it holds up—could put a lot of perfectly good laptops out of commission.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.
The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
