Google very soon will be updating its own top-of-the-line Chromecast to android 12 thus bringing it finally to the same level with smart TV platforms that are offered by its rivals.
Chromecast with Google TV (4K) at the moment only runs on android 10 despite both the hardware and software being developed by the Google Company itself. The streaming stick all thanks to this upgrade should now be able to get various benefits and this is including support for a wider selection of third-party game controllers, automatic refresh rate switching in a bid to reduce stuttering of videos, and a host of other minor and smaller improvements.
This development is following the announcement of the new and more budget-friendly version of the TV stick: Chromecast with Google TV (HD), which as you should know keeps a hold of many of the same very features but however swaps 4K visuals for full-HD, drops Dolby Vision and also have a reduced price.

As of now, Google has not confirmed the date as to when its best streaming stick will be getting the android 12 operating system. But however, with that being said, with the Chromecast, with Google TV (HD) all launching with android 12 we expect that the operating system update will be coming at a sooner date rather than later to its 4K model.
Why Has Google Taken So Long To Update the Chromecast with Google TV

And while you may be thinking that a smart TV stick would not require much storage space, you should know that it does need to make room for games, apps, and OS updates that users may have to download.
