Lazada has been getting exclusive products lately and we can now add another product to that list. The 2nd generation Chromecast released late last year is now officially available in Malaysia and Lazada is the exclusive distributor of both the 2015 Chromecast and Chromecast Audio. Both devices are priced at RM 199 and while it is a little bit more than the US$ 35 (~MYR 142) price, Lazada is throwing in a 12 month subscription of iflix worth RM 96. There's also a 1 year warranty.

In case you don't know what the Chromecast is, it is basically a dongle that enables you to stream media to your TV through the Google Cast app. It's also cool to know that the Google Home hub that Google recently showed off during Google I/O is also based off the Chromecast technology.

The 2015 Chromecast is an improvement over the original Chromecast dongle and the new model features a simple design and new color options. Unfortunately, Lazada will only be offering the black Chromecast and Chromecast Audio in Malaysia because the yellow and red models are exclusive to the Google Store.
