Chromecast sales exceed 30 million units

Chromecast hardware success continues for Google as shipments surpass 30 million

Google CEO Sundar Pichai stated on the company's second-quarter earnings call that over 30 million units of Chromecast have been shipped to date.




It appears demand for the streaming device is picked up major steam, as 25 million units had been shipped as of only May. No doubt the second generation launch helped, thanks in part to improved Wi-fi performance.


Chromecast has been Google's best-selling hardware product, and despite Amazon cutting off sales last autumn (widely believed to reduce competition for Amazon's rival Fire device).
