Google Chromecast deals - get set for Stadia

Google Chromecast deals are a hot commodity. To begin with, they're able to turn your television into a Smart TV for a fraction of the cost. That means you can stream content from your smartphone, laptop, or tablet straight to the TV (in other words, Chromecast lets you watch Netflix and beyond on the big screen even if your TV is older and / or doesn't have app functionality). In addition, they can be used with Google Stadia.

No matter what you want to do with it, you'll need to decide which version of Chromecast you want when looking for the best Google Chromecast deals. There are currently two to choose from: an affordable base model (currently known as the Chromecast 3) or the Ultra version. Both allow you to stream to your TV, but only the Ultra works in super-sharp 4K resolution. What's more, a Chromecast Ultra is the only way of playing Google Stadia on your TV. That makes it the one to go for if at all possible.

To get you the best possible prices, we've squirreled out as many Google Chromecast deals, bargains, and discounts as possible. You'll find these below. This page is also updated on a regular basis too, so come back every now and then if nothing takes your fancy. 

Just don't expect Chromecasts to pop up on Amazon. Due to a well-publicised falling out out between Google and Amazon, the latter is unlikely to stock any right now.

Note: The Chromecast Ultra doesn't seem to be readily available anymore. Because it's out of stock at most retailers and isn't visible on Google's own website, we suspect it may have been discontinued. How this impacts Stadia remains to be seen.

If you're looking to future-proof yourself and stream 4K content, you need the Chromecast Ultra. This allows you to pass 4K video and audio to your TV from whatever device you want, and it's the device Google demoed Stadia on during the live reveal at GDC all that time ago. 

While Google also boasted it'd eventually be offering 8K streaming, don't expect that for years to come (if ever, considering the performance of Stadia thus far). Consequently, the Ultra will serve you well through this generation of games and the next.

If you're looking for the standard Google Chromecast without any bells and whistles to its name, this one will do the job - and at the lowest price. Although it's not what you'd call a tremendous leap above the older Chromecast 2, this third-gen version manages to load and prep video content faster. It's very affordable, too.

The only downside? It doesn't play in 4K resolution and won't work with the Stadia system via your TV. As such, anyone wanting to game on the big screen will need to opt for a Chromecast Ultra instead.
