After updating to Preview firmware 1.49.220167 the screen output now has rounded corners and a black border in both Ambient mode and when casting. Is this by design or a mistake?

Hello, thanks for taking the time to post your issue.
 
Please check your TV user manual about troubleshooting Zoom and Aspect Ratio settings

Thanks for responding. This is not an aspect ratio or zoom issue. It is visible on two TVs that are both set to 'Full' or 'Original' image. The image is being output by the Chromecast. I'm wondering if this is a design choice to mimic the rounded appearance of the Nest Hubs? It is not massively apparent, but obviously rounded corners do not fit on a rectangular display!

Thanks for posting the picture. My Chromecast Ultra is on the same firmware and I am not seeing those rounded corners. Are both your TV's Sonys? I will do some research and post back.

I do think this may be related to the firmware update and escalated this over to the Chromecast team to see what we can find out.
 
Thanks for all the info!

Hi Tom,
 
Seems to be a feature of the new firmware release as i see it on my TV now. 
I did let the Chromecast team know of your posts by escalating this thread to them.
You can also submit feedback.

Same issue here too, after the firmware update the edges have become rounded. And frankly speaking I'm not liking it. I have Chromecast 2.

Rounded corners are still present on my Chromecast Ultra. I've completed a full factory reset, but the issue persists. Is there any update on a resolution?
