We recently switched from Roku to the Chromecast with Google TV, and now I’m sorry I waited for so long. To be fair, it wasn’t entirely my fault, as we couldn’t use this device fully without Apple TV+ support. But with that out of the way, I finally made the move.
As you may recall, Google launched Chromecast with Google TV in September 2020 and despite delivering numerous improvements over the Chromecast Ultra, it arrived with a lower price, costing just $49.99. I knew I wanted one immediately. I’ve always been a fan of Chromecast but have long felt that Google needed to evolve the platform to include an interactive user interface and a dedicated remote control, just like other streaming boxes.
