Well the new “Sabrina” is out
It’s more properly called “Chromecast with Google TV”. It now runs Android TV… same as the Nvidia Shield does… but with a new front end user interface… that’s the Google TV bit.
@JasonHowell do you have one for review yet?
Mine is stuck in the mail, although I already have the USB-C Ethernet Dongle Power Adapter thingie for it. I’ve been reading about it, and there is one thing that it seems missing, that the Nvidia Shield is also missing.
All these devices seem to assume that merging everyone in the house’s activity and likes and apps into one UI is just fine. Am I the only person who doesn’t want the TV to assume who is watching? Plex and Netflix manage to throw up a choice to select the user… As does the Playstation 4. Is there an option to enable user profiles for Android TV?
Also, the first thing I am going to try is to sideload Stadia. My TV currently has the Stadia Founders Edition Chromecast Ultra, and I am not willing to give up Stadia accessibility on my TV. (Not that I play it that much, but the ENTIRE point of it is the simplicity of play when I want to.)
