Google Chromecast Ultra comes with the price tag of £69 in the UK and $69 in the US.

If you own a 4K TV, it is the best choice for you to stream and cast 4K videos on your smart TV. With the dual-band WiFi, Ultra makes the best streaming player. Without any controlling devices, you can control the Ultra with ease. Chromecast devices always come up with the ability to sync with your smartphone and PC, it goes the same for the Ultra too. Unlike Firestick, which solely depends on subscription, Chromecast runs freely based on user convenience.

Though this is the first 4K streaming device by Google, it works flawlessly and up to the mark. Minute improvements like Ethernet adapters and Google Home integration are good.

On comparing the price with its previous version, it seems too high. Just for the 4K resolution and HDR images, $69 looks costly. Leaving any additional controllers like remote and the absence of user interface are still the negative aspects.
