9 Best TV With Chromecast Built-In And Ready In 2019

Chromecast has no doubt changed the way we consume content on our televisions today. It was launched a few years ago, as a small $35 accessory for TVs, and was undoubtedly one of Google’s most popular hardware products in recent memory. The product is amazing for streaming content from services like Netflix and YouTube from your Android device.

TV With Chromecast Built-In

Chromecast has seen an evolution now, and customers won’t have to use the same old-gen hardware on their televisions. Users can get the standard Chromecast for $35, or the HDR and 4K capable Chromecast Ultra, which appears to be the preferred choice for most new buyers.

But getting a new Chromecast only applies to televisions that don’t offer the feature by default. Thanks to the advancements made by modern day manufacturers, a handful of televisions today come with Chromecast functionality by default. And so, without further ado, here are nine of the best TVs with Chromecast built-in and ready:

Vizio P Series Quantum

One of the best TVs with Chromecast functionality built in today is Vizio’s P-Series Quantum TV. Coming in as a 4K Ultra HD TV, users will be able to experience a world of extraordinary brightness, contrast, color, and clarity. This TV has a whole 65-inches of real estate for beautiful TV and movie watching.

It also features Vizio’s own Quantum Dot technology, which delivers cinematic color intensity. And, naturally, 4K Ultra HD and Dolby Vision HDR elevate every detail to lifelike clarity, which is sometimes hard to find at the store — why do displays at the store that are seemingly high quality show off fuzzy detail anyway?

It does come with its own speakers built-in to the TV, which help provide you with booming sound quality. Who needs a soundbar or speaker setup anyway? And, of course, it features Chromecast functionality inside, which allows you to use your phone as the remote, giving you access to thousands of TV-based apps.

SHARP 55-inch Android TV

Up next, we’re looking at SHARP’s own LED Android TV. Despite its LED panel, the SHARP Android TV displays amazing clarity through its Ultra HD / 4K resolution. Ultra HD features 8 million pixels, bringing you a clearer, more defined picture than the antiquated Full HD. You’re bringing cinematic, movie-like quality straight to your living room!

One of the unique things about the SHARP Android TV is what the company is calling UHD Upscaler. This, through some software prowess, brings lower resolution content as close to 4K as possible. You’ll be able to see your new movies and TV shows in a completely new light!

Of course, there’s Android TV / Chromecast functionality built inside as well. You don’t have to have a Chromecast hooked up to the back of this unit to be able to use your phone as a remote. On top of that, you have instant access to thousands of apps that offer TV functionality.

 

Sony XBR55X900E 55-Inch 4K Ultra HD

TVs such as this one make it easier for you to access Chromecast without having to get separate hardware for it. It also helps that they come with pretty decent hardware on board, making them worth every penny. This particular offering is a 4K Ultra HD television with a 55-inch display, and since it’s coming from Sony, customers can expect the very best in terms of performance.

The television comes with four inputs including 2 HDMI ports, 1 USB 3.0 port, and 1 USB 2.0 port. It’s powered by Android TV underneath, which gives you access to some of the most popular Android apps and games. It’s an exciting offering to own, especially given the kind of hardware it possesses. Although it’s slightly on the expensive side, customers shouldn’t think twice before investing in this particular offering.

This 55-inch Sony TV will set you back by $1,398 on Amazon right now.

VIZIO 70-inch LED

This 70 or 69.5-inch TV is ideally suited to give an immersive media experience to practically everyone in your living room. Given the sheer size of its display, it also helps to have a large living room. The device also works with Google Home, allowing you to operate the TV with just your voice and Google Assistant. Naturally, there’s Google’s Chromecast built-in by default, allowing you to stream your favorite content from Netflix, Hulu and other providers.

Customers can download the VIZIO SmartCast app from app markets to give them one touch access to all the controls of the television. This app also converts your smartphone into a full blown remote, giving you the access to a myriad of features. The TV also comes with five HDMI inputs, letting you connect to a wide range of products like Blu-Ray players, gaming consoles, etc.

Best Buy hasn’t specified the price in the listing, and interested buyers will have to request for a price from the retailer.

Sony 55-inch OLED

Yet another Sony offering on this list, this particular product comes with a high-end tech on board, providing you the best in terms of entertainment as well as picture quality. The TV is “Smart-enabled” meaning it can automatically stream content from YouTube, Hulu, Netflix, and a lot more by default. This combined with the ability to stream via Chromecast on your smartphone makes this a truly versatile product.

Since this is an OLED TV, the lighting conditions of your home doesn’t matter much. Customers will be treated to better blacks and an overall richer picture quality compared to standard LCD panels. The TV is HDR compatible as well. A feature known as “Acoustic Screen” offers sound from all parts of the TV, giving a theater like feeling.

The manufacturer offers four HDMI inputs and 3 USB 2.0 inputs with the television, giving users extensive options to add other products or compatible devices to the list. The product has received a rating of 4.8 from all the buyers combined, which speaks volumes about its performance. This particular TV will set you back by $3,499.99 via Best Buy, which is quite hefty, but justified given the kind of features it offers out of the box.

Toshiba 49-inch LED

When we talk about televisions, it’s hard to miss out a company like Toshiba. Sure, the company is not as popular in the TV business as its industry rivals are, but that’s not to say that the manufacturer doesn’t have anything to offer. Toshiba’s 49-inch Smart LED TV comes with a wide range of features on board, making it ideally suited for those looking for a TV on a budget. It comes with Chromecast built-in, thus saving you the trouble of having to get one separately. It also comes with YouTube and Netflix apps ready, allowing you to stream the content of your choice right away.

The TV comes with three HDMI inputs and 1 USB input on board, which isn’t quite as much as other manufacturers offer, but will still get the job done comfortably. The 48.5-inch display makes it ideally suited for any living room, allowing the entire family to catch their favorite movies or watch sports together. Adding to its list of features, the device also supports Google Assistant via Google Home for voice guided assistance.

This television is currently selling for $399.99, which is pretty amazing when we check out the feature list of the product.

What about those old, dumb TVs?

If you simply have an old, dumb TV or cannot afford the few hundred to thousands of dollars that TVs with Chromecast functionality cost, you can still go with the standard plug-in Chromecast option for cheap!

Google Chromecast Ultra

The Google Chromecast is naturally a better option if you don’t have Chromecast feature built-in with your television. It connects to any standard HDMI powered television, converting your basic television into a smart TV within a matter of few minutes. After setting up the Chromecast, you can use your smartphone to wirelessly stream content from popular services like Netflix, YouTube, and a handful of other providers.

Given the kind of feature set it offers, most manufacturers offer Chromecast functionality with their devices by default. But if you own a slightly older Smart TV, chances are that it won’t have Chromecast built-in.

Other TVs

There aren’t a whole lot of TVs with Chromecast built directly into the TV. Generally, Google wants you purchasing the Chromecast, which you then hook into the TV via HDMI. That said, there are still smart-style TVs out there, such as ones with Fire TV technology built-in. Here are a few of our favorites.

Toshiba 43LF621U19

This 43-inch TV from Toshiba is a Fire TV Edition, which doesn’t give you the features that the Chromecast has, but does give you similar features, but on Amazon’s Fire platform. Fire TV brings together live-over-the air TV and your favorite streaming content. You’ll be able to connect any HD antenna to watch live over-the-air TV, or you can download apps like Netflix, YouTube, Prime Video, Hulu, HBO and more to stream movies and shows.

Toshiba’s TV comes in a 4K Ultra HD resolution, so everything you watch will be extremely detailed as well.

Insignia NS-55DF710NA19

Just like Toshiba’s, Insignia offers incredible resolution in their 4K UHD Smart TV. You get true-to-life 4K Ultra HD picture quality — you’ll get vivid colors and crisp detail when you’re watching movies, TV shows, or simply streaming video.

Again, this is a Fire TV Edition, so just like the Toshiba, you’ll be able to hook up an HD antenna to watch live TV, or you can download apps like Netflix, Hulu, and YouTube to stream your favorite content.

This one is a 55-inch TV, so you’ll get plenty of space to immerse yourself in whatever you’re watching!

Verdict

Here we’ve shown you tons of different options that you have for getting a TV with Chromecast functionality built-in. Any one of these TVs will allow you to easily connect up to your Android phone, providing you with the ability to “cast’ thousands of apps straight to the TV screen.

Of course, many of these TVs with Chromecast functionality inside are quite expensive, which is why we also threw the Chromecast Ultra on our list. You can grab that for just a couple of dollars, and transform any old dumb TV into a Smart TV!
