Chromecast vs Airtame 2

What’s the difference between Google Chromecast and Airtame 2?

Airtame and Chromecast offer wireless screen sharing, with the latter is optimized for media casting (watching Netflix, HBO, etc.). Both solutions provide a physical product (the receiver) which connects to an HDMI display (or VGA display with an adapter). Here we provide a feature comparison between Airtame 2 and Google Chromecast Ultra 

Please note that all technical specifications are taken directly from the Google Store website. In cases where pricing is not directly listed online, we include the quoted reseller price.
