Rated 5 out of 5 by LeeBin from Very good for tv This replaced my old chromecast ultra, so this review will focus on comparing these two devices. Pros: The remote is actually very nice to have, interface is intuitive, responsive, and good at recommending content across a range of services. You can also use it's assistant button to control other devices in your connected home. Being able to watch my TV and listen with Bluetooth headphones is game-changing. That's the main reason I decided to upgrade. Cons: WiFi connection is not as strong or reliable. On my old chromecast ultra, I almost never had to suffer through anything less than FHD while streaming, and usually had no issues with 4K streaming either. With this chromecast, I frequently find the streaming quality to be less than HD, although sometimes it is capable of stabbing 4K content too. I can only attribute this to a weaker WiFi connection. There is noticable audio lag and sometimes stutter when playing back through Bluetooth headphones. Sometimes it works okay, but often it's so bad that using Bluetooth headphones is not really a practical option. This chromecast has wayyy more issues when casting from my phone the 'traditional' way, than the ultra did. I almost always have to cast twice before a connection is actually established. And playback controls on your phone don't show up when playing content initiated from the remote. Only for content that you casted the traditional way. Overall, the convenience of the remote outweighs the drawbacks for me, and I'm happy to keep using this one instead of my ultra. But I do with Google would just make a no-compromises chromecast. The building blocks are all there

Rated 5 out of 5 by AllSet01 from All set, just plug in and enjoy with Chromecast. Plug in and enjoy all the latest apps for your smart TV. My older smart tv does not support HULU already installed so I bought this to watch. It also has the Apple+ that a previous device did not have yet. I am all "set".

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ronak Desai from Awesome Google TV + Chromecast It's a great addition to any TV or a smart TV. It has nice features, The remote can control entire TV, I don't even use my TV's original remote anymore! Voice commands are amazing, no accent issues at all! On top of that nice recommendations from all subscribed streaming apps as well as other available free streaming apps and you tube, all together on homepage! I also like it's Google Photo album sync as a screensaver.
