Android TV à HDMI beat

Xiaomi already had the Xiaomi Mi Box S as an alternative to offer Android TV at a low price. With this My TV Stick a smaller device is offered, easier to locate on our TV (it connects to HDMI and takes up very little space) and with several interesting functions, such as a remote control with buttons integrated in the services of content on demand.

In fact, on a dimensional level, it’s relatively similar to Google Chromecast, a device built into Android TV. At the material level we find 8 GB internal storage, something that will allow us to install both apps and games. It’s not a huge number, but you just have to install Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and other classic content playback services. It also has a gig of RAM.

The Xiaomi Mi TV Stick has a remote control in which the Google Assistant is integrated, so you can control everything with your voice

One of the strengths of the “TV Stick” over devices like a Chromecast is that in this case we have a remote control to control everything. This command is built into the Google Assistant, so we can control it remotely to play content. In other words, we can ask the controller to play a video of Xataka on YouTube, without having to search for it manually. We also have dedicated buttons for Netflix and Prime Video, which work as shortcuts to these services.

Likewise, by having an integration with Chromecast technology, we can send all kinds of content from mobileeven the mobile screen itself. When we are in a compatible application, we will see the send button, so that it can be read directly on the TV and we can continue to use the cell phone in the usual way. On this device playback is limited to 1080p (Full HD) up to 60 FPS.

Price and availability of the Xiaomi Mi TV stick

The multimedia device has just been presented in Europe for a price of 39.99 euros, quite competitive and in line with several of its direct rivals.
