Google pushes Android 12 update for older Chromecast 4K sticks

After the release of the Google Chromecast TV stick with Google TV (HD), Google previously confirmed to the media 9to5Google that the old Chromecast with Google TV (4K) will be updated in the near future to Android 12.

Today, older Chromecasts with Google TV (4K) got the Android 12 update, moving from Android 10 to Android 12.

The update has a build number of STTE.220621.019.A2.9082754, an update size of 722MB, and includes the July 2022 security patch.

The new version brings some of the new features that Google rolled out with Android 12 last year, including a camera and microphone switch that allows users to disable or enable access to the app's camera and microphone. Additionally, this update includes several settings to help users control HDR formats and surround sound.

The complete update content:

  • Upgrade Android TV OS from 10 to 12
  • Additional user settings allow users to control HDR formats and surround sound additions

Users may need to unpair the Chromecast voice remote control, and then reconnect the remote control from the "Remote Controls and Accessories" menu in the Chromecast settings after the update.
