I wish I heard the news a little sooner. Now I'm stuck waiting for a month to get it.

Apple TV will be available on Google Chromecast next year

It's not the first time when Google integrating Apple service into its system. Apple Music will be available on Google speakers soon.

Confirmed issue with Google Chromecast and Google Home causes temporary Wifi drops

The issue has been confirmed for routers from Asus, Linksys, Netgear, TP-Link or Synology.

Google Chromecast currently going for $25 in US

Specifically, Office Depot has the device listed on its website for that price, down from the $35 price tag it usually carries there.
