Google fans are in a dreamy state right now, after it was found out that the tech giant registered a new Chromecast with Bluetooth support. It has not yet been revealed what the company is planning on bringing with this Bluetooth support. Nothing is known about this new device yet.
The new device has been registered at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the US. The company hasn’t made any official announcement.
Google Chromecast With Bluetooth Support: When Will The Company Officially Talk About it?
Existing Chromecast devices won’t get Bluetooth support. This Chromecast with Bluetooth will be an upgraded version of the second-gen Chromecast (not the Chromecast Ultra).
It is being speculated that the updated Chromecast will work with Bluetooth keyboards and gamepads. The FCC registration points out that there is quite a long time left before the new Chromecast with Bluetooth support is launched.
The company has a huge developer conference happening in May 2018. It is the Google I/O 2018. Google will present some of its devices and updates then. So it is pretty plausible that they might reveal some information about the new Chromecast with Bluetooth support.
So people who have been interested in purchasing a Chromecast device should control their thirst for some time and wait for an improved dongle.
Google also recently released their eighth Developer Preview of Android Things. According to the company, the release of Developer Preview 8 of Android Things is specifically for developers and early adopters. It is concerning usage for compatibility and development testing on hardware supported platforms. Not to mention, it can even have stability issues of various kinds (on supported hardware). All application programming interfaces are not qualified in this preview.
Google also released a new update for Google Chrome; Chrome 66. It mutes auto-playing videos. However, the new update also has a catch to it. Some videos are instantly unmuted depending on a user’s interaction with certain websites. For example, if a person is a regular user of DailyMotion videos, then the videos won’t be muted by default. This is based on the search engine’s Media Engagement Index (MEI). It tracks your visits and playbacks for the domains you visit.
The company has also revealed that its team is working on an AR-powered microscope. It is for real-time cancer detection.
