Chromecast has sold millions, will be available more widely

To those of you who have doubted how successful the Chromecast by Google has truly been, hopefully your doubts can finally be laid to rest. In an announcement at the SXSW keynote, Google’s Senior Vice President of Android, Apps, and Chrome Sundar Pichai said that eight or so months since Chromecast’s release last year, Google has sold “millions” of units, with sales continuing to grow rapidly.

Additionally, the streaming dongle will be more widely available in many more countries in the coming weeks, although Pichai wouldn’t give a lot of specific deals.

Interestingly, Pichai also announced that an Android SDK for wearable devices would be available for developers in two weeks’ time, which lends some credence to previous rumors that a Nexus smartwatch would be released this summer, alongside Google’s next Nexus smartphone.

Lots of good things are happening at Google right now, and I have a feeling that 2014 will be a year for the history books.

    I’m hoping for the Google Smartwatch, though it better be priced reasonably. I wanted to get Google Glass, but just couldn’t spend $1,500.
