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. For me it’s the affordability! The OG Chromecast turned my 10 year old dumb TV into a smart TV for minimal $$. With the new Chromecast I will definitely stream some early 90s music videos along with vintage Music Music bumpers from YouTube!

  2. I like how I can easily transfer it from one TV to another, and not monopolize one TV…looking forward to voice control and the remote!

  3. I love using the Chromecast to play Stadia games on my tv. I would love to win the Chromecast with Google TV to use all cloud gaming services when they’re supported.

  4. I love how all my shows will be displayed together on the main screen and the first thing I’d stream is The Boys from Amazon Prime

  5. I can’t wait to try out the new interface. I love the simple cast features, but adding the GUI is taking it to the proper dongle territory. I can’t wait to watch the new stranger things season 3.

  6. I love how it integrates with my Google Home Mini so that I can pause, rewind, and even turn on my TV with my voice. I will be streaming Mandalorian season 2!

  7. I have bought Nest Hub and Pixel Buds from Best Buy before to create my own Google ecosystem and I am pretty sure this new Chromecast with Google TV is going to be amazing.

  8. It fits perfectly with the rest of my google devices! The fact that it now has a control and a selective UI makes it equal or better than other streaming devices.

  9. My mom has one of the original chrome cast versions and she uses it every. single. day. We love it because easily connects to all our devices! I loved hers so much I bought one of my one! But my moms is getting a bit old so I wanted to win one to replace hers!! We’ll be using it to stream the seasons of Fargo together!

  10. I like that I can stream shows from my tablet or phone and dont need cable to watch our favorite shows. We cant wait to stream our favorite shows and movies.

  11. Really excited to have a remote finally in a Chromecast. Pairing that with Google TV gives me the option to add some of my favorite streaming services my current smart TV doesn’t provide!

  12. I love how clean and simple Chromecast makes streaming especially with the addition of Google tv. First thing I will stream is The Lighthouse!

  13. I love the simplicity of chromecast and that it integrates with my existing google home setup and I would love to be able to stream the new mandalorian season in 4k.

  14. Why I love the new Chromecast? Simple: the remote! It’s one step closer to a complete tv experience that is also smart and conveniently connected to all my other google home products.

    Oh I also can’t wait for the update to enable Stadia!

  15. I love how simplistic it is. Touch the cast button and you’re done. Works cross platform too! Can’t wait to cast Netflix and of course my own personal photos and videos to the tv for my daughter to watch!

  16. I love Google Chromecast becasue of its simplicity. Tap, tap, and my favorite movie is on my screen. I can’t wait to cast and binge watch my favorite shows from Netflix.

  17. Hi, I have been using the Chromecast Ultra and like it. I mainly use it with Prime Amazon. I have read several articles about the differences between Chromecast Ultra and Chromecast with Google TV. I would like the latter to be able to use the remote and have the interface on the TV so it simplifies searching for something to watch, which I am finding a limitation in our current setup and, as a result, don’t watch and use Chromecast Ultra as much as we otherwise could. That would be my main reason for trying the newer device. Hope to win one. Thanks.

  18. I like that Chromecast allows me to stream content from all streaming sources available to me as well as on my devices on my TV! The first thing I would stream would be The Mandalorian!

  19. Love the interface, aggregation of streaming services, inclusion of Android Tv, powerful yet simple, controls your tv and includes a well designed physical remote and 4K output at a bargain basement price.
