This Cyber Monday deal will bag you a Chromecast and Google Home Mini for $35

Cyber Monday is the best time of year to pick up great deals on electronics of all kinds. One gadget that may be missing from your home is a streaming device, which allows you to view tons of top online content from services like Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, and Hulu on your TV. You could rectify that omission with some of the best deals on streaming devices for Cyber Monday — including three terrific deals on Google Chromecast devices available now from Walmart.

We’ve also found a few Walmart Black Friday deals for those that want to be saving money on some of the best Chromecasts by leveraging Black Friday sales.

Here’s a quick look at all of them:

This bundle, exclusive to Walmart, includes both a Google Chromecast and a Google Home Mini for just $35. That makes it the ideal way to start off your smart home, with easy setup and the ability to control your TV using voice commands. One both devices are installed, you can command your TV to turn on and off, start streaming shows, pause and resume playback, and more, all using your voice. Normally, the two products would cost $84 when purchased separately, so you’re getting a real bargain with this bundle.

Chromecast — $25 ($10 off)

The classic Google Chromecast is an easy way to convert any old TV into one with smart functionality. Walmart has the third-generation Chromecast for just $25, down from $35. You plug the small device into the HDMI port on your TV and then you can stream videos or music directly from your phone. If you want a way to watch streamed content like Netflix or YouTube on your TV but you don’t want to shell out for a brand new smart TV, this little dongle can give you most of the same abilities for a fraction of the price.

Chromecast Ultra — $50 ($20 off)

If you want to stream content from your phone to your TV in 4K, then you’ll need a Chromecast Ultra. Luckily, Walmart has the Chromecast Ultra on sale for $49, down from $69. This works just like the regular Chromecast, but it allows higher definition streaming if you have a TV which supports 4K Ultra HD.

As well as Chromecasts, Cyber Monday sees a whole raft of electronics products going on sale from massive retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, and Target.

Roku calls Google an ‘unchecked monopolist’ as ongoing YouTube TV spat rages on
Roku Streambar Pro.

In late April, Roku made the decision to pull the YouTube TV app from its channel store, effectively denying it to any Roku user who wants to add it to their streaming device. It also prevented any Roku users from creating a new subscription to the Google-owned live TV streaming service.

It was the opening salvo in a very public contractual dispute between Roku and Google. On May 7, in an apparent attempt to limit further damage that might be caused if Roku elects to remove the YouTube TV app entirely, Google began updating its regular YouTube app on Roku with the ability to access YouTube TV content if you're a YouTube TV subscriber.

The Apple TV app is already available on Roku, Amazon Fire TV, and several smart TV platforms from brands like LG and Samsung.

What's unusual about the Chromecast with Google TV announcement is that it appears to create a Russian Matryoshka doll effect in terms of the user experience. Both Google TV and the Apple TV app are designed to be holistic streaming experiences that can bring all of your content into one place, with suggestions curated by an algorithm. By adding the Apple TV app to Google TV, users will effectively be putting a curated experience inside a curated experience.

Google’s new Chromecast will need more than a remote to beat Roku and Amazon
Chromecast with Google TV plus remote.

After years of selling its Chromecast devices -- "dumb" media streamers that only work in conjunction with a phone, tablet, or computer -- Google has finally launched a truly smart media streaming device: The $50 Chromecast with Google TV.

On paper, this thing has it all. An elegant remote control that balances functionality with simplicity, as well as support for 4K, HDR (even Dolby Vision), and Dolby Atmos. As the name suggests, it still works as a Chromecast for when you want to stream content to your TV directly from another device. The whole show runs on Android TV -- the smart TV software that Google has been refining for years and which now has thousands of streaming apps. And its price is pitch-perfect: $50 is what Roku charges for the Streaming Stick+ and what Amazon charges for its Fire TV Stick 4K.
