The Chromecast Is Now Available In Australia And Japan


So far the Chromecast dongle has been limited to being available in about a dozen countries, with most being either in North America or Europe. Now more countries can get one today, specifically Australia and Japan.

This is the same device as in other markets, but tailored for content available in these regions. In Australia the Chromecast costs AU$50 and is available directly on Google Play and retail outlets JB HiFi and Dick Smith.

In Japan the Chromecast costs 4200 yen and is available from Google Play and a few other places as well. To see where, read the official post on the Google Japan blog.

It’s always good to see more devices being available in more places. If you live in Australia or Japan, will you buy a Chromecast now that you can officially get one in your country?
