When choosing which system to use to binge watch your Netflix shows, your favorite YouTubers, and much more, you want to have a good streaming device to watch it on. There are many different options, some which are popular are the Roku and the Chromecast with Google TV. They both have different pros and cons, but it all comes down to what you want with your streaming device. A Roku has all the apps you need, and some even stream at 4K HDR. In the other side, the Chromecast has lots of apps and it runs a new software called Google TV (previously known as Android TV). Google TV has lots of the same apps, but it also has amazing integration with Google Home. This integration allows you to control your smart home by speaking into your remote to switch the lights, change the thermostat, lock your doors, and so much more. In my experience using both in the past, I currently use a Chromecast with Google TV because of its integration with Google Home, the new software, and the amount of apps it uses. Pricewise, the Chromecast with Google TV goes for $49.99 while the Roku goes from $25 up to $70, depending on which one you choose. So before you go and spend all your money on an Apple TV, take into consideration your other options because they aren't all bad.
