Chromecast with Google TV Review

 

With the new Chromecast with Google TV, Google has finally caught up to its rivals by adding an interface and remote to its streaming stick offering. The new stick has simplicity at its forefront and is one of the best you can get.

– Packed with support for latest standards, ideal simple remote and easy-to-use UI

Google's mini streamer finally gets a remote

Remote control (finally!) ; Slick design ; 4K HDR ; Dolby Atmos support

Somewhat pricey for a mini streamer ; No Apple TV+ or Now TV apps ; No Google Stadia support ; Recommendations aren’t great

The best Chromecast so far but it’s missing a few major apps

Chromecast with Google TV (2020) review: Good but not great

 

A touch too expensive and not without its flaws, the new Google Chromecast isn't quite the streamer you've been waiting for

Remote control ; Effective voice search ; Simple, intuitive UI

No Now TV or Apple TV+ ; Strange microphone positioning ; Pricey

All of which brings us to the big question: should you buy one of Google’s new Chromecast streamers? My answer to that question would have to be, probably not.

Chromecast with Google TV review

 

Chromecast finally has a full TV user interface & remote control. Is that enough?

Good evolution of Chromecast ; Full user interface & remote ; 4K Dolby Vision & Atmos support ; Inexpensive device ; App library ; Energy-efficient

Weak hardware, performance ; No frame rate matching ; Lacks Google Stadia, gaming apps ; Ads disguised as 'recommendations'

Google Chromecast 2020 review: What we always wanted

 

Google's history with making a streaming device with a remote and on-screen interface has been rocky at best. Did they get it right this time?

Affordable ; Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos support ; Slick UI ; Responsive ; Integrated Google Assistant

Dolby Vision always on by default ; Recommendation algorithm still learning
