Amazon Now Shipping Google Chromecast Models

chromecast-3d-gen-500pxAmazon is finally shipping Chromecast streaming media players including the 3rd-generation and Ultra models.

The news comes via Android Police who reported the devices were in stock and shipping from Amazon.

Chromecast was long excluded from Amazon’s inventory but was listed on Amazon about a year ago, albeit labeled as “Currently unavailable.”

The Chromecast models are priced accordingly, with the 3rd-gen model selling for $35 and the Ultra with 4k support for $69.

A search for Chromecast on Amazon brings up both models, followed by the Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote and Roku Express — each priced significantly lower than the two Chromecast devices (although Fire TV Stick has a list price that’s higher than the $35 Chromecast).

The Prime Video app still isn’t available for Chromecast though, so while Amazon Prime customers can take advantage of 2-day shipping they won’t be able to watch the included video service.

Amazon and competing streaming video platforms haven’t played nice over past years. Amazon was criticized for refusing to sell Apple TV media players up until a year ago, but has since stocked the streamers shortly after the Prime app launched for Apple TV.

Amazon also sells Roku players, lauded by many as the best streaming experience among competitors. In contrast to Chromecast, the Prime Video app is available for both Apple TV and Roku models.
