A special thanks to the whole team at Reviews.Org for working with me on this collab. Please head over to their channel to check out their Google Chromecast review (featuring my top three favorite Chromecast functions)

Review notes:
Chromecast operates out of the Google home app, Roku requires online registration, but then operates out from the remote (or app)
There are many Roku remote apps on the app store
Chromecast - Multiple people can be home members and can cast their videos as needed (i.e. one person can be casting while others are searching, or the person casting, can search in another window on their phone/laptop)
Chromecast - requires a PIN unless you enable guest mode
Primary features: headphones, mobility, multiple users, privacy
Both are 1080p
Roku must be registered online - requires a credit card upon registration for in-app purchases (not cool!!)
Chromecast comes in Chalk and Charcoal (to match your home)
Chromecast can mirror phone or laptop to play anything on your laptop (not just one of the 500k apps)... literally anything
Interface comparison - showcase of compatible apps
Chromecast does not natively display Amazon music or video
Chromecast has thousands of compatible casting apps
Chromecast does work with Spotify

Capabilities:
Chromecast can mirror your phone or laptop screen
Chromecast can customize ambient screen slideshow - make them your own photos, or learn more about the photos they show you
Also customize the weather, time, device information, and slideshow speed
No easy way to find all chromecast-compatible apps
Chromecast ultra has an ethernet port in the power block
Chromecast has much better Google home compatibility, but probably no Amazon Echo compatibility
Roku allows private listening on your phone (or the remote for the more expensive models)

Price difference
Both are $35
6 different Roku options - varying from $30 to ~$100 (3 cheap ones have a simple remote, 3 expensive ones have a voice remote and sometimes a headphone jack)
This Roku is missing the headphone jack, 4K, better wifi connectivity, Voice search, and TV power/volume buttons
https://www.roku.com/products/compare
2 different Chromecast options - $35 and $65

Conclusion
People who watch lots of traditional-style TV and want Netflix, Hulu, etc should get Roku
People with a very old TV can get either one, but Roku requires fewer setps
People who watch a ton of YouTube and modern non-Hollywood content might be more interested in Chromecast
People who leave their TV on all the time and want a nice slideshow should choose Chromecast
People who use their TV as a music player during parties should get a chromecast for ease of song selection, Queue, etc. - also queue YT videos
Anyone looking to share screens in a meeting should consider a Chromecast

Extra Notes:
* Chromecast might have a few crowd games like Monopoly or pictionary
* No remote for Chromecast, and the Roku remote is an IR remote! Plus, roku remote requires another app. If you just get Google home, it works for many other things
