Google has offered Chromecast with Google TV streaming gadgets since 2020, giving users an affordable way to get Google’s platform on their own TV sets. News emerged last week that a third model could be on the way, potentially replacing the 4K model.

That got us thinking about how many people actually own a Chromecast with Google TV device. So we posed this question in our news article last week and here’s what you told us.

Do you own a Chromecast with Google TV device?

Results

Just over 1,900 votes were cast in this poll, and it turns out we have a runaway winner here. Over three-quarters of respondents said they indeed own a Chromecast with Google TV device.

We’re not sure whether this popularity is in line with the general population, but we can see why people would buy this device. The Chromecast with Google TV starts at just $30, or $50 for a 4K model, making it one of the cheapest streaming gadgets from a major brand.

Otherwise, 13.44% of surveyed readers said they didn’t have a Chromecast with Google TV but had an old Chromecast instead. This makes sense, as the old models were a go-to recommendation for many years if you wanted to simply cast content from your phone to your TV.

Meanwhile, 6.4% of respondents said they had a different streaming device (e.g. Fire TV, Nvidia Shield TV, or Apple TV), while 3.83% of voters said they used their smart TV instead.

Comments

  • eszklar: Would love to see a higher-spec CCwGTV to compete with the Nvidia Shield myself. But an upgraded 4K CCwGTV with a better SoC and more RAM/Storage is fine too.
  • Grey: I would appreciate it if these fancy Google TV devices had a “dummy Chromecast” mode. I don’t want the Google TV features.
  • Marty: For the love of God, please make one with a better CPU. It is the most sluggish device I own. The Walmart Onn Android TV box is way smoother. What gives, Google?
