The Chromecast equips a TV with the Google Assistant so that content from compatible mobile devices can be casted and navigated by voice. Thanks to its minimalist design, the media player requires almost no space. Its appealing form with soft edges provides a pleasant tactile feel in the hands for an agreeable user experience. It is available in different colours so that it may be found more easily behind or next to the television.
Statement by the Jury
The Google Chromecast is an excellent example of a design approach focusing on the principle “reduction to the essentials”.
