Android 12 update for Google Chromecast has a bug that is messing up the tv source options period, it’s not even giving me the option for 1080p which is what my tv nativity runs at, it’s not just hdr it was working fine at 1080 for like 7 months now this ridiculous shit, lol Google your pathetic, stadia is done and pixel phone is garbage now this trash can of a device is the next failure, your all pathetic, do you test out anything other than blow up dolls and date rape drugs, fucking losers
The update and patch bricked my device. My chromecast with google tv 4k was working perfectly and now it’s just a paperweight. Google is aware of this and their solution is to help Google’s liability and revenue by just throwing money away on a new replacement chromecast which they admitted could still get bricked by an update and patch again. They stated it has happened to many people but not enough social media noise yet to care or take action on devices known to be broken.
