Note: 4K not available on all apps. Some apps require subscriptions.

Mirror Your Android Phone or Chrome Browser

See anything on your Android phone or tablet on your TV's larger screen, or use your laptop to cast any website from the Chrome browser. If it's online, you can cast it.

Dual-Band Wi-Fi Connectivity

Chromecast Ultra is designed to keep video resolution high and buffering low thanks to integrated 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi support and a built-in 1x2 SIMO antenna system. Because content is streamed straight from the cloud, movies and TV shows play without interruption, even if you and your phone leave the room.

Ethernet

For users with slow Wi-Fi connections, Chromecast Ultra comes with a power adapter with an integrated Ethernet port, so you can plug directly into your home network.

Google on Board

Built-in Google support allows you to easily cast content from Google Play Movies, Google Play Music, YouTube, and Chrome web browser.

Google Assistant Support

Google Assistant is a digital ecosystem that enables you to interact and control compatible devices simply by using your voice. Additionally, app control lets you use your smartphone to access functions on the go.

Thank you Ludwig. Now the followup: if the device on which I am running VLC does not support 4k, but the version of VLC and the receiving device do, and the file is a 4k file, will the rendering on the receiving device be 4k, or will it be at the resolution of the sending device that is running VLC?

No, it will not; nothing to do with your speakers. Its function simply is to transfer data (movies, songs, etc.) from your device to your TV. It will sound the same no matter the source.

question

Can I connect my PC with Windows 7 so that I can show images in a large format and since I have Amazon Prime, can I see their streaming from my PC screen to the TV...?
Asked by: Reinfeld
You can use the cast functionality from your Chrome browser on the PC to cast to the Chromecast. What you would do differently though, is select Cast desktop under the Cast to dropdown. This will essentially mirror your entire screen.
