First-generation Chromecast owners will need to upgrade after Google ends support

Google has quietly ended support for its first-generation Chromecast dongle, capping off a nearly decade-long run (it missed the mark by a few months).

If you read the firmware release notes chromecast support website, you will see that the last update was on 27th April. The company has been closed for some time, but no one noticed until recently. At the bottom of the page, you’ll see a notice stating that older Chromecasts will “no longer receive software or security updates” and that Google will not provide “technical support” of any kind. With no more patches coming, “people may notice a drop in performance over time,” although some argue that the quality degradation has been going on for some time.
