Sundar Pichai, Google’s SVP of Androids, Apps and Chrome, announced during a keynote presentation at SXSW that the company will be expanding the availability of Chromecast into more markets. Pichai stated that Chromecast — which is $35 USD HDMI streaming media player — will be coming to “many more countries” in the next few weeks.
Canadians have been wanting Chomecast to arrive on Google Play since it was announced last July, but we’ve been limited to Amazon or 3rd party sellers. Pichai didn’t indicate which countries are on the list, a previous report indicated that the UK and Australia will be next, and hopefully Google will consider Canada.
As for sales, Pichai also declared that they’ve successfully seen “millions” of units sold.
