Owing the 3rd Gen Chromecast I can say I absolutely love it. Ppersonally doesn’t bother me that there’s no physical remote because I’m fine using my phone. I would recommend purchasing this with a Google Home product if you really want to maximize its use. If that’s not an option, its still great on its own.
