We all love the Chromecast thanks to its cheap price and almost endless potential to turn any TV into a smart streaming machine. Last year, Google released an update to the original Chromecast with a few minor improvements as well as a Chromecast Audio that works with all Aux speakers. Now these new gadgets are available for purchase in the southern part of our planet: Australia and New Zealand.

In Australia, the Chromecast 2015 and Chromecast Audio will be priced at $59 AUD (approx. $42.30). They're now available on the Google Store and Harvey Norman, and will be coming to JB Hi-Fi. The Chromecast 2015 will also come to Officeworks, The Good Guys, and Bing Lee.

As for New Zealand, the devices will cost $69 NZD (approx. $45.80). They're already available for purchase on the Google Store and Noel Leeming, and will be coming soon to JB Hi-Fi.

In both countries, if you want the more colorful lemon or coral Chromecast 2015, you'll only be able to grab it on the Google Store. Other retailers will just offer the black variant.

Japan too

As some commenters mentioned, Japan is also getting this new Chromecast 2015 and Chromecast Audio as confirmed by this Google Store support document. Both should be priced at 4980 Yen (approx $44.11).

And South Korea

South Korea has also gotten the new Chromecasts according to the same Google Store support document. Both the Chromecast 2nd gen and Chromecast Audio are live on the Korean Play Store, retailing for 54,900 Korean Won (approx $44.58).
