If you don’t have a smart TV but want to easily stream content, or you love the Google operating system and want to use it instead of the built-in Fire or Tizen system, you need to grab a Chromecast. It’s the Google streaming device that turns any TV into a smart TV. Google ended support for the first generation Google Chromecast recently, but the newer models still work as designed. If you’ve been loving the Chromecast since it first came out in 2013, there’s no reason to switch over to a Fire TV Stick or an Apple TV 4K. There is a Chromecast deal on a newer model going on right now. The only deal currently available on a new Chromecast is $12 off the 3rd Gen version. Read about it below.
The 3rd Gen Google Chromecast is the perfect streaming device for Google fans. The Chromecast connects to your TV via an HDMI port and makes any TV a smart TV. You can stream content from your phone or your laptop, and you use that device as a remote to control what happens on your TV. Unfortunately it can only stream up to 1080p, so if you’re itching for 4K content, you’ll have to stream it from a different device. The Chromecast fits perfectly into a smarthome system designed around Google, so if you have a Pixel phone or Nest smart devices in your house, this is your best option. If you’re an iPhone or MacBook person, we’d suggest the Apple TV 4K.
