With its impressively simple casting technology, Chromecast makes it extremely simple to beam content found on your phone up to the TV. With support for 4K, Chromecast Ultra brings UHD content to your home theater and the promise of Google Stadia game streaming later this year. Considering that game consoles tend to cost around $300 or so, this streamer significantly cuts upfront investment while still allowing you to play AAA games like Destiny 2.
