Original Chromecast not receiving major updates, only fixes

If you take a quick gander at the Google Support page detailing the newest firmware version available each Chromecast device, you’ll likely notice that the original Chromecast is on a much lower update than the other devices. While all the other Chromecast hardware is on version 1.40.156414, the 1st Gen Chromecast is all the way back on version 1.36.157768. Looking at the “Preview Program” versions of Chromecast firmware paints an even worse picture. – Kyle Bradshaw, 9to5Google » https://ift.tt/2Zm5JqP
