Both the Chromecast and Chromcast Audio are available in multiple colors.
The Chromecast Audio has grooves on the top to remind us of the good old days of vinyl records (which are experiencing a bit of resurgence these days).
In addition to a revamped look, the new Chromecast media streamer has been updated with a "Fast Play" feature, enhanced Wi-Fi and easier content discovery.
The new Chromecast remains very compact.
The Chromecast media player has an integrated HDMI cable. The device does require an external power accessory (included).

Both Chromecasts offer support for Spotify, a feature users have demanded for a while.
You'll be able to cast a limited number of games to your TV via the new Chromecast.
With the standard audio connector, the Chromecast Audio can connect to basically to anything with an audio input and turn any speaker into Wi-Fi speaker.
You'll be able to easily see which apps you can cast to your Chromecast from your phone or tablet and watch on the big screen.
