March 2020 - October 2020

Google’s Chromecast is a household name for streaming devices thanks to affordable hardware and a simple control method. However, in 2020 Google revamped that story completely by introducing the new Chromecast with Google TV.

Unlike past Chromecasts which were only controlled by a smartphone, Chromecast with Google TV runs an Android-based operating system with support for thousands of apps and is controlled by a physical remote control. Supported apps include Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, Disney+, HBO Max, Peacock, and many others.

Google TV also allows the new Chromecast to use its homescreen to aggregate content from all of your favorite streaming services in a single place. A watchlist makes it easy to remember what shows and movies you wanted to check out too.
