It’s 2019, so it’s probably a good time to upgrade your TV into a smart one. Instead of investing more money in a brand new 4K TV (although we’re not opposed to that idea either), you can simply pick up this handy Google Smart TV Kit for just $49 at Walmart — a savings of $25 — and turn your old dumb set into a voice-controlled modern TV.

The Google Chromecast is one of the best streaming devices out there because it’s inexpensive, reliable, and only requires a good WiFi connection to get started. It doesn’t come with a remote control, but you can use your smartphone, tablet, or even laptop to stream videos and music from your device to the TV via HDMI and WiFi with ease.

Just tap the Chromecast icon and you’ll be ready to watch Netflix, Hulu, HBO Now, or listen to music from Spotify, Google Play Music, and more on your big screen TV — even if it’s not internet-enabled.

You can also pair the Chromecast with the Google Home Mini for voice-controlled features from one device to another. Just say something like, “Hey Google! Play Stranger Things on Netflix,” and the Google Assistant will automatically play the series on your TV like magic. Of course, the Google Home Mini can power your other smart home devices too, as well as pull up-to-the-minute information like the news, weather, and sports scores from the web.

If you buy the Chromecast and Google Home Mini separately, it would run you $84 retail, but Walmart and Google put together this exclusive smart tv kit — which is much cheaper at $74. However, with a sales price of $49, you’ll save $25 on the bundle. It’s like getting a Chromecast for free!

But don’t just take our word for it. Walmart customer Carol writes:

“Me and my husband are enjoying the Google Mini, it’s so smart and easy to use. Ask her anything and it will answer u back. We just tell her to play some music and it plays right away. The Google Chromecast is also very useful especially when we watch movies.”
