Chromecast with Google TV review

 

It doesn't reinvent the wheel, but the affordable new Chromecast with Google TV delivers 4K HDR with Dolby Vision and, for the first time, comes with a remote.

4K HDR with Dolby Vision Google Assistant built in Comes with a remote Good selection of apps

Slow to load at startup Can’t be powered by all TVs Google TV UI is uninspired No Google Stadia support

The Chromecast with Google TV doesn’t reinvent the wheel for streaming devices, but it does offer a convenient, easy-to-use and fully featured option for people who don’t want to spend more than they have to on the latest streaming hardware.

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

– Missing some apps and could be faster

Chromecast with Google TV offers much of what you would have hoped for while you’ve been longing for a fully-fledged Google streaming stick – from support for a range of standards to a pleasant user experience. There are some strange hiccups that...

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 app

There are some niggles, but the Chromecast with Google TV is an excellent media streamer thanks to its remote, interface and Google Assistant

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

Chromecast With Google TV Review

 

Attractive, accessible new Google TV interface ; 4K with HDR10 and Dolby Vision ; Useful Google Assistant and Cast features ; Affordable

Live TV tab only supports YouTube TV

The Chromecast With Google TV finally adds a remote and on-screen interface with a new and simple menu system to the popular media streamer.

Chromecast with Google TV review: A step forward for streaming

 

Chromecast with Google TV review: It reduces app overload, but still has a few blind spots.

Unified streaming guide means less digging through apps ; Google Assistant makes finding and sorting through content easier ; Neat features like casting, Google Photos wallpaper, and multi-room audio

Guide integration varies by app ; No support for multiple profiles ; Still some missing apps, including Apple TV+

The underlying Android TV platform still has a few weak points as well, though it feels considerably more polished .
