Google Exec: Chromecast on its way to many more countries soon


Zavvi may be the only UK retailer to have the Chromecast on sale at the moment, but during Sundar Pichai’s SXSW keynote he revealed that the Chromecast is on its way to “many more countries” within the next few weeks.

Originally, the UK was touted as receiving the Chromecast as soon as 1st March 2014, but that was later revealed to be just a provisional date. Now it seems that the Google exec has firmed up release date with various countries, and although these specific countries were not revealed, the UK, Europe, and Australia are the most likely candidates to get it first.

If you’re a UK resident, you can head over to Zavvi now to pick one up, otherwise you should see retailers announcing their offerings in the next coming weeks.
