Google’s new Android TV device gets new name and price


The new Google “Sabrina” device that briefly appeared in retailer listings a few weeks ago, which we expect to be an Android TV unit, may be the oddest name when launched. The value Google gives can help distract us from that awkwardness, though.

According to the internal target systems observed by Artem From Android policeThe name of Google’s new Android TV device has apparently changed from “Sabrina” to “Google TV with Google Chromecast” and priced at $ 49.99.

The name “Google Chromecast with Google TV” is the weirdest of Google names, so it’s perfect. Google Chromecast may try to continue that line of devices that people are familiar with even when working on Android TV. Certainly, this would be Google TV branding back on Google TV, a name they had gone to years before and years ago.

I don’t have a problem with the name change on Google TV, I’m just worried that Google is selling the Chromecast experience here first, but Google TV should sell, because it’s a real platform and not just a wireless casting. Technology. Whatever it is, it’s Google and it looks good.

At $ 50, this is the second time we have seen a retail listing of this dongle that would be an incredible value. The original Home Depot listing for “Sabrina-Abhay” was priced at $ 50, but Walmart went with $ 60. My money would have been at the $ 60 price point, yet the goal here is to reduce that $ 50 mark. Either way, buying an Android TV dongle (hopefully with a remote) for such a low price will definitely help Google’s TV platform reach the masses.

If you’re not on Android TV yet, you have to fix the dronoline a bit?
