Google’s Chromecast Ultra allows you to send your favourite online entertainment, in up to 4K Ultra HD quality, from your smartphone, tablet or laptop straight to your TV.

How to connect
Plug the Chromecast Ultra into the HDMI port of your 4K television. Then use your mobile, tablet or laptop to broadcast films, television shows, music, games and other media with up to 4K Ultra HD and HDR picture quality straight to the screen using your Wi-Fi connection. If your Wi-Fi network isn’t up to streaming 4K content, then use the built-in Ethernet adapter on the Chromecast Ultra. Not to worry if you don’t have a 4K TV, as the Chromecast Ultra will automatically optimise your content for best picture quality your TV can deliver.

Enjoy together
Chromecast Ultra makes huddling around a laptop or tablet screen with tiny speakers to watch a movie a thing of the past. Choose from 4K-enabled apps like Netflix and YouTube, or browse over 200,000 TV shows and movies, 30 million songs, as well as radio, sport, games and more to bring your next party to life. Get friends and relatives to connect their devices to your wireless network to give you access to their digital content

Simple controls
As Chromecast Ultra streams from your device, it’ll use the interface you’re familiar with. That way you can use your smartphone to control volume and playback, instead of adding yet another remote to your household.

I would go for the Firestick as it will do what you want (i.e. Disney+) independently and it will also do a million things more whereas the Chromecast is crippled by needing to be on the same network to another device to cast from and by the limited apps that support it. This is apart from the fact that it is more expensive.

I have a 4K TV from 2017 and some of the apps like YouTube and Amazon Prime are really starting to creak. I'm thinking of getting a streaming device because it's starting to get on my nerves a bit now.

I occasionally mirror my phone to the TV when certain apps don't have a cast function, but I just want an all-in-one device that allows me to cast in 4K. I know Amazon comes with a remote but I much prefer the convenience of using my phone to control everything as it's always with me and just so much easier.

So my question is, which device would be better for me? I keep reading that Amazon is better but without knowing what each device does it's hard to know. Plus I know Amazon and Google don't get along so I'm wondering if the Chromecast would be the better device.

Basically I just want to cast YouTube in 4K, Disney+, Amazon and a few others using my phone. What would be the best device for me? Any unbiased advice would be greatly appreciated.

If price is not an object then the best thing you can have IMHO for these is the Nvidia Shield. The Chromecast will in no way perform better than the Firestick 4K. I have all the generations of the Chromecast and I find it is the device I use the least. Have you tried clearing your Firestick's memory or to refresh it (factory reset)?

The ads on firestick put me off. I had the 4k roku Streaming Stick plus which was great. Only downside is no ethernet port if your Internet is crap (which mine is, so I got a now tv 4k box instead)

Edit: you can control roku with your phone, there's an app that acts as the remote and I think it has voice search on the app as well as private listening

i've had one for nearly a year and its super fast and really good. much faster than original chromecast and personally as i have my phone on me all the time its just easier to cast than searching on my firestick.

I don't have any Firestick as it stands, just a smart 4K TV from 2017 which has a lot of built in apps but the Amazon and YouTube apps in particular are starting to slow down massively. Amazon Prime especially is super slow and unusable ever since they updated the app to have ads. That is actually unacceptable especially when you're paying to use Amazon prime anyway.

From the replies people have given it looks like the 4K Chromecast is better suited to my needs. I need very specific requirements from my streaming device and whilst the Firestick is good as well, having to use a separate remote puts me off. It's just so convenient casting from a phone instead of having two different remotes lying around. If the Firetick allowed casting from a phone I'd definitely have chosen that as it's the cheaper option.

Do you know that you can replace the Firestick's remote by your phone to control it? I really can't understand the specific attraction in casting from another device and using two devices instead of playing directly using one device (albeit with a remote control if you want). You can even control the Firestick with nothing but your voice if you have an Alexa nearby.

So you don't NEED to use the remote to control the Firestick? I just want something simple and what I'm used to for years now - which has been my phone where I just link it to whatever app I'm using and I can control it from there. My remote is literally used to turn the TV on and off. App, volume control etc is all done from my phone and it's incredibly convenient. If the Firestick acts in similar fashion to the Chromecast then it's a realistic option for me.

I'd go for the Roku streaming stick plus. You can use the Roku remote to turn on/off TV and control volume.

But if casting is your thing, just get a Chromecast Ultra

Google coming out with the 2nd gen Ultra 4k with a remote. Waiting on this.

Got young kids, so easier for them to use the remote than making mistakes by voice commands or having to use a mobile.

Currently got 3 fire sticks and 1 roku 4k box. Hands down roku box handles better and faster than any fire stick. All my boxes are wifi too.

I rarely cast but watch a few "free" movies from my phone to roku fine.
Google Stadia game streaming compatible, if you fancy trying that.

If you have Google homes. Buy Chromecast... Being able to tell Google what to play and do is Ace.
Yes works with Disney plus. It works with anything that can be cast I'm my experience... Which is everything... Even videos on Facebook.

If you have Android phones.. you want this.
