Remember when Polaroid used to make cameras and camera equipment as their bread and butter products? Good times. Things are a little different in 2016, though, and Polaroid manufacturers several other electronic devices, including televisions.Good news for anyone that’s planning on purchasing a Polaroid TV; the manufacturer is building Google Cast into their 4k television sets,
Good news for anyone that’s planning on purchasing a Polaroid TV; the manufacturer is building Google Cast into their 4k television sets, bringing smart streaming right to the screen without any extra devices.
Polaroid isn’t the first company to do this, as Vizio is already rolling with a Cast-only solution for their TVs, too. Personally, I like the idea of doing away with the cluttered (and usually slow and terrible) interface that a Smart TV brings and relying only on Google Cast. No more laggy interface to navigate, and no more bundles of apps and video stores you don’t need. It’s a win-win situation.
Google Cast is being built directly into Polaroid’s 4k line of televisions that covers their 43”, 50”, 55” and 65” models. They should be available later this summer.
