Chromecast hitting ‘many more countries’ in a few weeks

March 10th, 2014 at 6:30 AM
International Chromecast Launch and Price

Google’s senior vice president Sundar Pichai revealed at SXSW that the popular Chromecast dongle will soon be available in international markets. The exec said the device will launch in “many more countries” in a few weeks, The Next Web reports, without specifying the first new markets that will get the device, or actual release dates for them. International prices for the affordable media streaming gadget aren’t available at this time either.

This isn’t the first time Google confirms Chromecast launch plans for international markets, but the company has never offered estimates or exact launch dates for its international expansion. Previous reports said that U.K. and Australia will be among the first countries to get the Chromecast.

Furthermore, The Next Web says that Pichai also revealed Google sold “millions” of Chromecast units in the U.S., without specifying a number. Following its earnings report for the last quarter of 2013, Google identified the Chromecast as one of its biggest sellers last year, when it comes to hardware, but the company did not brag with the number of units sold in 2013.

In preparation for its international Chromecast rollout, Google has already released its Chromecast SDK to developers, in order to have more Chromecast-ready apps. Meanwhile, various Chromecast-like devices have started to appear, with Roku’s newest Streaming Stick being one such new Chromecast competitor.
