Based on various leaks we know that Google is working on a new streaming device for TVs. But we aren’t very sure if it is a stripped-down version of the current-gen Chromecast/Chromecast Ultra or an entirely different product in a new avatar.

While Google has remained tight-lipped about the product’s existence and its features, the company itself inadvertently confirmed the new TV dongle in a video that was spotted by the good folks at 9to5Google in a developer preview of Android 11 for Android TV.

The small video hidden in the developer preview files is a simple walkthrough of how to reboot the new Google Android TV Dongle and suggests that the user just needs to unplug the power supply, wait for 3 seconds and re-plug. The entire process is similar to the recommended way of restarting the current-gen Chromecast devices.
