As someone who already owns one of the new Google dongles reports, the device also just supports non-integer refresh rates (which are shown as 24/30/60Hz in the settings). So its just the same like on ATV with the addition that you also have to switch between display modes manually.Sabrina launch today was disappointing. No Android TV 11 yet. Even Stadia is delayed and no confirmation of HDMI 2.1 compatibilities like the developer edition.
So I'm waiting on more info. I'll stick with my ATV4K for now. Hoping for some better framerate matching news on some device soon. Maybe one of these threads will keep me updated?

Some think that Android 11 will bring an auto match feature because of the new framerate API that will be introduced. But as I already said in this post I don't think that this will make a difference. But even if apps will implement it there will still be the problem of lacking support for integer rates.
So as on ATV the question remains if this is just ignorance, incompetence or if there are hardware limitations in the chipset they use, so they can't support it even if they wanted to.
Personally I'm convinced now that we will never see a streaming device on the market that has automatic frame rate matching that works across all apps and supports integer and non-integer rates. I'm waiting for such a device for over 10 years now. So I guess ATV is as good as it gets and we just have to deal with it.
