Google Chromecast UK release date teased by job listing

A Google Chromecast UK release date could soon be on the cards, as the media streaming device is teased for a global rollout by a new Google job listing.

Currently available exclusively in the US, the compact, HDMI based TV dongle looks set to receive a wider launch, as the California-based company seeks a new International Product Manager to “drive the end-to-end Chromecast product experience for countries around the globe.”

According to the listing, Google is searching for a “Product Manager who is passionate about launching consumer products in international markets.”

The job description adds: “This individual will be responsible for defining and driving the end-to-end Chromecast product experience for countries around the globe. [They] will be working closely with the Chromecast hardware, software, content, and operations teams to define international product requirements and successfully managing the launches.”

A Wi-Fi connected dongle, the Google Chromecast is capable of turning any HDMI port packing TV into a Smart TV, with the device’s Android foundations allowing users to download and run a selection of Chromecast apps, including the likes of Netflix.

A rival to the likes of Apple TV and Roku’s connected TV services, the Google Chromecast currently costs just $35 (£21.50) in the US.

Google has yet to offer any formal indication as to when a Google Chromecast UK release date will be held or indeed how much the device will cost if it makes its way to our humble lands.
