A slight refresh to an old favorite

from Android Central

Should you buy this new Chromecast? Sure. Just know its limitations — 1080p video versus 4K, and — and you'll get along just fine. If you need something with more of a traditional user interface and remote control, you'll need to look elsewhere.

Little in the way of new features

from The Verge

The 2018 Chromecast has an improved design and slightly better hardware capabilities than the three-year-old device it replaces. It’ll let you stream content from countless apps. And at $35, it remains an impulse buy. But there’s no one great feature that’s worth the upgrade.

Faster, but not better

from Tom's Guide

The new Chromecast is a divisive streaming gadget. It's easy to like it for the intuitive interface and wide variety of content, and the speed improvement is noticeable. However, the new Chromecast doesn't innovate in any real way, and it's missing the Amazon Prime Video app (even though there's a work-around).
