Not too prolonged ago, Google began offering users a possibility to exam unprepared Chromecast firmware. The initial preview firmware, version 1.21.72444, began rolling out to users recently. Google’s release notes for a update only states, “General bug fixes and fortitude improvements.” Thanks, Google.
Thankfully, tipster Rafael sent us a screenshots above and below. They prove that all references to a word ‘Chrome’ have been removed. The stream open firmware shows a Chrome trademark when a device starts up, that is now transposed by a Google logo.
The rebranding is a bit odd, deliberation a Chrome name isn’t going divided during all – a Chromecast Ultra is on a way. Regardless, this firmware should eventually make the approach to all devices.
