Australia Misses Out On Chromecast Again, As 11 Other Countries Get A Release Date

When stuff comes out in the US, we sort of just assume that we’ll get it eventually. We got all excited last week, though, when Google’s head of Android said that Chromecast — Google’s HDMI streaming dongle — would drop in loads more markets this week. Turns that Australia isn’t one of those markets.

Chromecast launched in 11 more countries this morning: Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden and the U.K.

No Australia to be found.

Speaking at his SXSW keynote last week, Sundar Pichai revealed that Chromecast would land in “many more countries” in coming weeks. We had thought it would be Australia, but sadly, we’re all still waiting.
