By February 6th, 2015 AT 1:50 PM

Approximately 10 million Chromecast units have been sold globally since its release in July 2013, as reported by Google Korea.

The $35 streaming stick was launched with plenty of apps, but support for the device gradually expanded. The report also states that there are now over 6,000 iOS, Android and Chrome apps that are compatible with the Chromecast. Google has also disclosed that around 6,000 developers are actively developing more than 10,000 Chromecast-enabled apps.

Google Chromecast India PriceIt has happened for the first time that Google has provided solid sales figures for the Chromecast. Previously, company executives used to mention that Chromecast sales were “in millions”, but the company rather preferred to share how many “casts” were produced with the devices: 400 million in July 2014, 650 million in October, and 1 billion in late January.

With the Chromecast nearing its second year, there has been a buzz about the new version of the device, which would bring improvements. However, Google seems much more interested in developing ‘casting’ as a platform rather than a device anymore, the company has plans for integrating it into Android TV. Interestingly, the first Chromecast-enabled speakers are anticipated to be unveiled in October.
