You are here because you are confused between google chromecast 3 and amazon fire stick which one to buy?
Both the devices are really good when it comes to entertainment and features but both have there own advantages and disadvantages which today I’m going to discuss with you guys in this post.
Comparison | Google Chromecast 3 vs Amazon fire Stick
Let’s talk about Google Chromecast 3 first, few days ago Google launched chromecast 3 in India exclusively on Flipkart India at a Price of Rs. 3,499 which is actually 500 less as compared to Amazon fire stick. I think that is because of chromecast not offering any remote with it to control 😛
Google Chromecast 3
First we talk about connectivity and other features which google chromecast 3.
Google Chromecast 3 is fairly easy to connect and setup is pretty simple. First, you need to plug your chromecast to your TV and then power it on
Next step, Download Google Home app on your Android or iOS smartphone and then pair it up that’s it.
Chromecast 3 is loaded with features you have most of the source for entertainment like you can easily watch Youtube, Netflix, Hotstar, Sony Liv (Chromecast 3 comes with 1 Year Free Subscription of Sony Liv), Ganna (Free 6 months Subscription), Voot, Wynk, Saavan and you can mirror anything you want to mirror from your phone to your TV.
There is hardly any flow you can find on Google Chromecast 3 apart from a remote, Google says your smartphone is your remote which is great like today we all have smartphones, But a remote is always a better option to control TV.
I’m not saying chromecast 3 is bad in control options you can pair multiple devices and there is also a guest option but still for Ex. somethings you want to switch off your phone and want to enjoy Netflix series on your TV But without a smartphone, you can’t even skip ad on chromecast at that time you definitely miss a remote control for better control.
Amazon Fire Stick
Now let’s talk about Amazon Fire Stick and then we compare both the decide which one is the best option for you.
There is no app required to download on your smartphone for this device just plugin amazon fire stick to your tv and its ready to stream. Amazon fire stick has built-in OS which allows you to stream whatever you want to watch through your Wi-fi network. So, there is no problem in connectivity what so ever.
you got almost all the option here at Amazon Fire Stick which you found on Google Chromecast 3 and you can also install you apps like hotstar, voot and many more and if you have a techy person with little bit work you can also install Android OS on this with which you can make your tv an android smart television.
And the biggest feature which I really like about Amazon fire stick is a remote with which you and all your family members can easily control the device with input or via Voice control.
So, Which One is the Best
Google Chromecast 3 is a great streaming device and offers a lot of options and if you want a streaming device for your bedroom then google chromecast 3 is a great choice but you definitely miss a remote to control and if you want to control this with your voice then you have to spend at least 2,499 (If you bought Google Home Mini in festival season) on Google Home Mini Smart Speaker but without any doubt voice control on Chromecast 3 is much much better then Fire Stick.
But if you want a streaming device for a family room where all of you family members want to control and not all the members in family have there own smartphones at that situation Amazon fire stick is a better choice as compare to chromecast 3 anytime.
So, All in all, if you want a streaming device for family entertainment the amazon fire stick is the way to go if you want a streaming device for your bedroom or for office with which you can cast your presentation the Google Chromecast 3 is the best option for you.
