Google's cordcutter-friendly Chromecast device is getting even more friendly as of today with an updated design that makes it "easier to plug into TVs with crowded ports" and "supports the latest Wi-Fi standards and adapts more easily to changing Wi-Fi conditions in your home, so you get higher quality video with less buffering." And for those that like to customize, it comes in red and yellow in addition to the previous black.




The company is also launching Chromecast Audio, a device that lets you connect wirelessly to your speakers/sound system and stream music. Naturally, it supports a heap of apps, including Spotify and Pandora.


Both are available now. Also available today or at some point over the next few weeks is a Chromecast app update that's said to make it easier for you to find content.
