Best TV Sticks for Monitor
Google TV with Chromecast: Google TV with Chromecast was released in 2021, and this is more like the upgraded and the better version of Android TV. One of the best features of this stick is that you can connect your Bluetooth Speakers with it and as well as use a VPN with it.
One of the other features which are amazing about this TV stick is that it shows all the trending movies and shows which are mostly searched by other people as well, and then customises your searches according to your tastes preferences. It’s quite easy to operate as well. All you have to say is “Hey Google” and then you can give your commands for it to perform.
Amazon Fire Stick: Amazon Firestick for your monitors is a great choice because with Amazon Firestick you not only get the latest and the smoother interface supported by Amazon Prime, you are also able to get the latest shows and movies streaming on Amazon Prime. All in all, this is a very great device for your monitor as you can not only connect any of your Bluetooth devices on it but also have 1000s of apps support. You can also use a VPN with Amazon Firestick.
However, one drawback of the Amazon Firestick is that, unlike Google TV, it doesn’t allow you to change the volume of your Bluetooth speakers by the device itself.
Roku TV: Roku TV or even other Roku Streaming devices are still considered to be the “King of Content” as you can find almost everything and anything you want on it. Not only does it offer hundreds of free-content channels, but it also has the Roku Channel which has some great originals and shows.
However, one of the most brought up and quite prominent drawbacks of the Roku TV is that you can only connect Roku TV™ with Roku wireless speakers and not your own Bluetooth Speakers. You also cannot use VPN on Roku TV™ which is another place where it falls short.
