Third-Gen Google Chromecast gets sold ahead of official release

Oops! Best Buy Accidentally Sells Unannounced 3rd Gen Chromecast

When he tried to buy it, the Best Buy employee couldn't scan the device, as it wasn't registered in the system and had a release date of October 9.

Google's big October 9 hardware event is fast approaching, and that means we're deep into leak season for upcoming products. It still has a Micro-USB port for charging. "But since I already had it in my hand and was the same price as the 2nd generation Chromecast, they let me have it under the old SKU". We shall see. On a side note, I may have to start frequenting my local Best Buy to get the scoop on all the new toys. The only way the new Chromecast could make significant waves this year is if it housed Android TV on-board.

Steelers Actively Shopping RB Le'Veon Bell For Seahawks' Earl Thomas
Each week he sits this season he gives up more than $855,000 as he bets on himself in free agency to make it all back and more. Unless the Steelers are interested in a straight swap for Ezekiel Ansah, Detroit will not be answering the Le'Veon Bell chime.

Yet another user on the thread posted a photo of the new retail boxes of the third-generation Chromecast being available on shelves, however the location was not mentioned.

The Chromecast 3 appears to share its looks with its predecessor, but ditches the etched Chrome logo for a blank face, save for a subtle "G" logo, with a matt black surface and more rounded curves. It's still microUSB and has lost the magnetic HDMI connector, reports GroveStreetHomie. As for the person who has the new Chromecast, he's not able to use it yet because the Google Home app hasn't been updated to support the streaming device. Fortunately for GroveStreetHomie staff put it through as a second-gen device, and they were able to take the new dongle home with them, when they discovered it was likely a new model. They weren't the only one either. For the last few months, this new Chromecast has been popping up in FCC databases with an additional Bluetooth feature, and now it looks like it's finally launching. But we're going to have to wait until the 9th to see what Google has in store for us all, especially where details like pricing and availability are concerned.
