Although many consider it a product that completely changed the streaming market for home users, Google Chromecast's fourth anniversary was a quiet one. Sadly, there is no promo to come with this celebration, but there's always the next year.

Google launched the Chromecast family of digital media players back in 2013, on July 24. Since then, the tech giant managed to sell 30 million units and also reached the third generation, launched in early November 2016 and known as Chromecast Ultra.

The fourth anniversary of this popular accessory passed without any fireworks, only receiving a small announcement on the official Twitter account @madebyGoogle - "Cheers to 4 years of fun! Happy Birthday, #Chromecast" Last year's advanced Chromecast Ultra takes the resolution supported from 1080p to 4K, also providing full HDR10 and Dolby Vision support.

Google Chromecast's first two generations came for a price of just $35 USD, while the Ultra carries a $65 USD price tag. However, since the Ultra uses micro USB and requires a power adapter, we would not be surprised to see the next-gen Chromecast adding USB Type-C connectivity. Remains to see when would such a thing happen.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
