Chromecast prices are dropping more than ever now that some of the top models have spent some time on the shelves. Not only are these devices ready for discounts themselves, but the streaming device market has been flooded with budget alternatives since the arrival of the Chromecast. This makes it also true for some particularly competitive Chromecast offerings.
Why Chromecast over the competition? Google Streamer manages to overtake with a wide range of great features and great support for Google Assistant and the best Chromecast apps.
As prices are already pretty low, there’s no need to wait for specific Chromecast sales. If you’re in the UK or the US and prefer to stream content out of a standalone box, you should check out the latest Roku offers (opens in a new tab). Otherwise, our Amazon Fire TV Stick pricing and deals page has a large selection of streaming devices.
Chromecast 3 cheapest prices
The latest version of the standard Chromecast (not 4K) is the third generation iteration. You will generally find it at the same prices as the previous model. Stocks of the older model are retiring, although if you spot the older one for a decent amount of less, you don’t lose much, skipping the new one.
The only real improvement is modestly increasing the speed of loading videos and running them in full HD resolution. The actual dongle looks a bit different too (see photos), but aside from the speed boost, that’s all you have on a Chromecast 3. At least now we know why Google basically launched it without letting anyone know about it.
Chromecast Ultra cheapest prices
4K Chromecast Ultra is a high-end streamer that has since been overshadowed by the above Google TV model. The specs are fairly similar, except for a difference in interface – the Ultra using Android TV – but you won’t get a remote with this model.
Chromecast Ultra deals are typically around £ 69 / $ 69 / $ 95, so anything cheaper is an added bonus. It’s worth noting, however, that the prices of the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K are cheaper these days, and this device also comes with a remote control.
Cheapest Chromecast with Google TV prices
Chromecast with Google TV is the newest addition to the Chromecast family – with 4K HDR streaming, an included remote, and an improved Google TV interface. If you have a 4K TV or plan to buy one, it is definitely worth choosing one of them. Chromecast deals from Google TV are usually around $ 49.99 / £ 59.99 / $ 99 – and as a newest model, it’s worth keeping an eye out for the deals.
Chromecast 2 cheapest prices
The Chromecast 2 is very similar to the discontinued Chromecast from 2013. Sure, it looks a little different. It also has slightly higher network performance and a few other tweaks like delivering with a dangling cable instead of a stiff stick. But basically the same product with a different shape – that’s why the prices were basically the same. A newer version is currently available, although it is only moderately faster.
