A few years ago Google rocked my world by releasing the first version of Google Chromecast. I loved it! It turned any television into a smart TV, instantly … and for an amazingly low price. Since then, the whole chromecast ecosystem has become more extensive and useful. I use my original chromecast every day and I can’t wait to try the newest version, now with a great Google TV interface. Read on to learn more and to find out how to enter for a chance to win one.

Chromecast changed TV watching forever

Casting from my phone to my TV still feels magical. I’ve been doing it for several years using a Google Chromecast and it amazes me how easy, effortless, and predictable casting is. Few technologies promise so much from such a tiny device and deliver beyond expectation consistently as well as a Chromecast.

And the Chromecast experience keeps getting better. At first there were only a few things we could cast: Netflix was the most important! Then Prime became available and other apps. This summer I casted NHL games from the CBC sports app. The video and audio were fantastic.

Google improved on perfection with the new Chomecast with Google TV

I rarely use superlatives for the obvious reason that few things are “always” or “never” a certain way. For example, some people say it’s always raining in Vancouver … no, it’s not! However, I can say I am always happy with my Chromecast. I rely on it for almost all of my TV viewing. It’s technology at its best because it does what I expect it to do, every time.

That’s why I can’t wait to try the new Chromecast with Google TV. This new version has a remote that you can talk to via Google Assistant integration. The remote adds more funcationality to Chromecast since you won’t have to use your phone at all if don’t want to. Also new is an interface on the television that simplifies the process of finding series you are watching or new shows you want to watch. You can read more about the new features of this device on this announcement article we posted on the blog a couple weeks ago.

Win a Google Chromecast with Google TV Contest Rules and Regulations

Good luck.


  1. I love the ease of use of a chromecast and how it is pretty much universal in its support. If I win I’m going to stream Superstore!

  2. I’m so excited about the new chrome cast. We have the old one and use everyday. We don’t have cable so it’s our primary source of television.

  3. Google TV aggregates comment from your streaming platforms into one place. The new season of The Crown comes out in November and I’m excited to stream that.

  4. I am hooked since the initial release. I had a friend who bought one for me in the US because it was not available to us in Canada. Since the I got the v2 and I am still using that one since it does the job. I’d like to get my hand on the new one ever since I heard about the project Sabrina.

    • Would love to get it for my grandmother that is unable to see anybody because of the situation. We would be able to help her cast pictures and videos on her TV.

  5. Can’t wait to have a run at the new OS and have a whole new level of control on screen with the new Chromecast! If I won the contest I would be as excited as I was the day I brought home the very first Gen 1 Chromecast!

  6. I’m waiting to replace my Firestick with the new Chromecast with Google TV for a better integration with my other Google devices. What I love in this version is the integration of google assistant and the new remote. Even if I’m ditching the firestick still will be watching the boys on the new Chromecast 🙂

  7. I have chromecasts since the first gen, in fact I pre-ordered the first one and I love how simple and straightforward the device is. It’s easy to use and simply work.

    • I already downloaded the new Google TV app to added TV Shows and Movies to my Watchlist I just only need the new Chromecast with Google TV to enjoy my favorite content in the best platform.

  8. I don’t have cable (and I don’t want it) and have to stream everything. The Chromecast is amazing, and updating it to have Google TV would be even better. Plus anything is better than Apple tv. That’s a joke!

  9. I streaming the British Baking Show to my Chromecast right now, but would love to see all my shows across Prime and Netflix in one easy interface with the new Chromecast!

  10. O have a normal Chromecast and a firestick but have never been a fan of the fire sick. Would love to get my hands on a Chromecast with Google tv

  11. Chromecast is on all my TVs. This new version is the biggest change since its beginning. Cannot wait to test it with live sports.

  12. This Chromecast would go right into my partner’s TV so he can watch Maangchi’s YouTube videos on a big screen rather than his tiny phone! The ease of finding things to watch is what he’ll love about it.

    • I love that the Chromecast with Google TV aggregates comment from your streaming platforms into one place. The new season of The Crown comes out in November and I’m excited to stream that.

    • I’ve had pretty much every version of Chromecast since it’s come out. I usually use it with my google home and say “play how to get away with murder on livingroom tv”. Having a Chromecast with Google TV and a remote will be a really nice upgrade and I will use the content aggravating feature often.

  13. I love that the new chromecast can play content both natively and through casting! This opens up alot of streaming possibilities for the big screen. I’d stream some 4k content first!

    • I love that you can stream anything from your android phone to the screen. If I win the thing that would watch first would be stranger things

  14. I have 2 chromecasts, actually 4 if you include chrome cast audio, but this version is a game changer because of the remote. I would like to see the Mandalorian on it.

  15. I love that it comes with a remote and it’s compact so won’t take up a lot of space and easy to use! I can’t wait to stream shows on Netflix like The Office and Friends!

  16. We don’t own a Chromecast at this time, but based on what is described, the Google TV interface sounds very polished and easy to use. We would watch action flicks through the device like the Avenger movie series.

  17. I love being able to display my google photo’s on my TV when it is not being used. It is like a massive digital photo frame. I would use chromecast to stream Plex.

  18. The best thing about Chromecast is the feeling on continuation of the videos from my device to the TV. My guests get super thrilled when they are able to cast in the TV which such ease. Once I win the contest, I will cast the new season of Mirzapur tv series.

  19. I love that Chromecast makes my old TV seem not so old. I can’t wait to stream exercise videos so I’m not trying to follow along on a tiny little screen.

  20. I have an older tv that isn’t very smart. Kids keep bugging me to get Disney+ I tell them we can’t because tv isn’t able. Looking at this option to stream from tablet or phone. A win here would be a win at home for Dad.

    • I love the Chromecast because it allows you to display your phone screen on your tv screens. If I got it I would definitely be streaming cobra kai!

  21. Chromecast had was able to upgrade old devices and make them somehow new and exciting again. The fact that is open to both android and apple speaks highly of the diversity of apps that can make great of it’s features. I just love it
