Amazon still isn't selling the Chromecast, nearly three months after initial announcement

Google and Amazon have been in a feud of sorts for years, starting when Amazon pulled the Chromecast and Nexus Player from its online store in 2015. The war culminated late last lear, when Amazon added a YouTube client to the Echo Show without Google's permission or involvement, leading Google to remove YouTube from the Fire TV and Echo Show altogether.

30 days later, Chromecasts still aren't available on Amazon

30 days ago, Amazon announced that it was in the process of assorting Apple TVs and Chromecasts to start selling them again. Since then, the Apple TV and Apple TV 4K have been available and sold on the site, but the Chromecast and Chromecast Ultra are still showing as "Currently unavailable" from Amazon, with no third-party sellers at all. Even searching for "Chromecast" on Amazon doesn't bring up the product pages linked above, you'd have to know the URL to see them. We've reached out to Amazon several times over the past weeks to ask about this and to inquire about an exact availability date, but were told there were no details to share.

Amazon will start selling Chromecast and Apple TV after pulling them in 2015, Google Home still not available

Amazon removed the Chromecast, Nexus Player, and Apple TV from its online store in 2015. Amazon said the products' lack of Prime Video support (which Amazon itself is responsible for adding) could confuse buyers, but most saw it as a thinly-veiled attempt to boost sales of its own Fire TV lineup. Since then, Google and Amazon's feud has only escalated.

[Deal Alert] The Chromecast Ultra $15 off deal is back, now down to $54

Black Friday is well behind us now, but it doesn't look like the discounts are stopping anytime soon. All the better for those of you who missed out on a deal, had other priorities to purchase in November, forgot to get a gift for someone, didn't have a use for something but now want it, or maybe bought a product and want another one of it now.

One of the deals that's resurfacing is for the Chromecast Ultra, the 4K and HDR version of the beloved Chromecast. It usually costs $69, but it went down $15 to $54 during Black Friday.

[Deal Alert] Get a Chromecast Ultra for just $29.99 ($39 off) from RCWilley, but only with local pickup

Thus far, we've most commonly seen $10 discounts on Google's Chromecast Ultra. That's really not that great of an incentive, but if you're on the West Coast, you may be able to grab one of these 4K-capable streaming devices for just $29.99 - a whopping 57% off the MSRP.

[Deal Alert] Get a Chromecast Ultra for $59 ($10 off) at Google Store, Best Buy, and more

Google doesn't offer discounts on its products very often (aside from the Google Home, which seems to be on sale quite a bit), but a Chromecast Ultra deal has just gone live. This is the very same deal that we saw back in June and in February, and while a $10 discount isn't anything astronomical, it's a nice incentive to grab Google's premium Chromecast if you don't already have one.

New Chromecast Ultra firmware update adds "video smoothness" feature, turns it on by default

Resolution is important on displays, but for now, there's not really much point obsessing about it given that most consumer TVs and many monitors now have 4K screens onboard. However, frame rate is just as crucial, if not more so; I'd much rather have a slightly lower-res stream with a more stable fps count. Google seems to have had the same thought process, given its latest "video smoothness" feature addition to the 4K-capable Chromecast Ultra with firmware version 90308.
