The little dongle that dared is now a streaming superpower

The Original Chromecast

Google CEO Sundar Pichai revealed how many Chromecast units the company has sold during an earnings call held earlier this week.

And you no doubt won’t be surprised to hear that it’s a lot.

Revealed during a reply to queries about Google’s overall hardware strategies, Pichai says the company has sold 30 million Chromecast units today.

This figure includes both generations of the streaming stick, the first of which launched in 2013, as well as the newer, sound-only Chromecast Audio.

But it gets even more impressive.

‘Google has sold another 5 million Chromecasts in just under 2 months’

Back in May of this year during I/O, Google said it had shifted 25 million Chromecast units, up from 17 million in May 2015.

This means Google has sold an additional 5 million Chromecasts in the past 2 months alone.

These are crazy impressive figures for a device which has only just celebrated its third birthday.

    Kind of surprised they haven’t released a 4K version yet. Maybe there aren’t any chips that will run cool enough to put in a Chromecast dongle. Still though, I would think they could release a 4K Nexus Player that could also act like a Chromecast to bridge the gap for a few years.

      Nvidia Shield TV is what you’re looking for. 4K Android TV with Google Cast built in.

        How are the updates with that? I’m kind of hesitant to buy any third party device since they have across the board bad reputations of not updating the software.

          From my experience, Nvidia’s Android products have been very reliable.

          I have a Nvidia Shield tablet k1 and the updates have been very quick.

    Does this include just Chromecast or all Google Cast devices. I just found out the lady I take care of has Chromecast functionality built into her tv

      I don’t believe it would because those devices are different. I can’t remember why, but my Roku, for instance has the cast protocol and I can cast from YouTube, but I can’t cast from an arbitrary Chrome browser tab without a Chromecast. I can’t recall why, but I seem to remember thinking the reason for the difference was fairly significant.
