Google is planning to reveal its new Chromecast at a big hardware event on September 30th. Thanks to one insider, we’ve already learned what the new dongle will look like. Now, thanks to another leak, we know what the remote will look like too. 9to5Google shared images, obtained by WinFuture, of the remote.

The remote has a D-Pad at the top and a volume rocker on the side, as well as buttons for back, Assistant, home and mute. Most notably, the remote has dedicated YouTube and Netflix buttons.

Previous Chromecast devices didn’t come with a remote, so including one suggests a larger Google/Android TV integration. The addition of a dedicated YouTube button strengthens this suspicion.

In addition to the Chromecast remote leak, 9to5Google also shared more images of the upcoming Nest smart speaker, which we will likely learn more about at the hardware event later this month.
