Google Chromecast ambient mode update adds Google Sans font

Google brings its modern design to another platform

Google is still in the process of giving its apps and services a makeover using its new, more modern Material Design.

In the latest Chromecast update, Google replaces the outdated Roboto font with its modern Google Sans. Google uses the new font in apps like Google Maps, News and Messages.

The update also moves the name of the device to the top right-hand corner of the screen instead of the bottom left.

Finally, the weather icon on the screen is now coloured and uses the same iconography as the Ambient mode on Google’s Pixel smartphones.

The update brings the second generation and original Chromcast to software version ‘1.36141427.’ The Chromecast Ultra boosts to version ‘1.36141435.’
