the new Chromecast with Google TV has been available for a few weeks and I hope you haven’t lost the remote yet. But if so, Google just put replacements on their store, allowing you to buy another remote for only $ 19.99.
Interestingly, as discovered Android Police, the Google Store datasheet shows that the remote comes with an accelerometer. As it stands, there are no features that use such hardware, and that was not mentioned during Google’s unveiling. We’ll have to see if the company has anything up its sleeve. Maybe an option to automatically turn on your TV every time you pick it up?
The remote currently only works with the new Chromecast with Google TV, which has only been available for a few weeks. But it’s good to know that you can easily order another remote if you’ve lost it. Or maybe you just want a second just in case.
Of course, the remote comes standard with Bluetooth to pair with your Chromecast, an infrared sensor to control your TV, and a mic so you can talk with Google Assistant. It also comes in three colors: Snow, Sunrise, and Sky (or in normal terms: white, pink, and blue), so you can match the color of your original unit. Plus, $ 19.99 isn’t that bad considering the price includes a pair of AAA batteries.
