The Chromecast with Google TV will get a very essential update with some crucial improvements and new traits.

The new update with firmware version QTS1.210311.005 was spotted by a Reddit user. It weighs 166MB so it’s not that big, but the changelog reveals some interesting new features.

You will find the Advanced Video Controls setting under the Display & Sound section. It’ll give you granular control over HDR formats, resolution, refresh rate, and color formats.


HDMI-CEC can now be configured to turn your TV on/off. HDMI hotplug improvements will also help your Chromecast with Google TV detect the best display settings available for your television.

Many users don’t use an Ethernet adapter for Chromecast with Google TV. For them, Google has made Wi-Fi improvements to 5Ghz and mesh networks. Bluetooth audio stuttering has also been addressed in the latest update.


The remote of the device is also getting an update to version 24.7. You can head to the settings for the remote to find the new software.
