The Chromecast Audio won't be for everyone, but it's a solid solution to a problem many of us have: having old, working tech that's behind the times. I use Lazer media player and it often cuts out or freezes. I am a very happy camper. Thanks for considering my comments. Could be some power saving setting turned on your phone or maybe some app notifcation breaking the connect or your router not set to airtime fairness? I like that I don't have to open an extra app to stream from my Android phone.
But 8 have no issues with Pandora or TuneIn. Takes a bit to get connected, but once it does it's smooth sailing. It was kind of cool being able to play music in two separate rooms simultaneously. Watch shows, listen to playlists, and more. You need to supply the speakers. I need more for each room.
I got this for my husband for Christmas and neither of us are impressed with it. Thinking of returning this item. It does everything it says it will do and does it flawlessly. The device has a hybrid 3. Also, for anyone interested, Google makes an ethernet adapter that works with these from all I've read if wifi isn't good enough for you. Stays connected to my wifi all the time when my other Chromecast cuts off sometimes.
This will make it so much easier to watch videos that are more accessible on my phone, especially You Tube, etc. . So dont assume that the price is 2. If you're connecting the Chromecast Audio to a really nice pair of speakers, you'll appreciate the option to stream high-resolution audio up to 24-bits and 96Khz. Some have gotten generic adapters to work, too, but I couldn't.
My only gripe is setting it up initially never works right. Aug 28th, 2016 5:42 pm How do you pricematch bestbuy online? My receiver already can stream Spotify, TuneIn, Pandora. And while streaming, you can still use your phone as you normally do. Quote from elite-fusion : i was under the impression that they were always 25. Makes sharing a lot easier too. Pro-tip: Load the item into cart and get to the final step of the checkout before you confirm the order.
The range advantage Wi-Fi has over Bluetooth won't make a big difference if you keep the Chromecast Audio plugged into indoor speakers, but can be a nice-to-have if you connect it to a smaller set you keep outside. Other reviewers said you can't cast from other apps. Makes me happy just to think about how much value I received when I got this delivered to my front door. I've had Chromecast for many years and can't live without it. The Cast Dorset hv any programs installed. I've used it intensively---mainly with Netflix---without a single problem. A little larger than an Oreo cookie, the Chromecast Audio is the product of an unholy marriage between a 7-inch record and a hockey puck.
Nevertheless, operating this microphone system without a license is subject to certain restrictions: the system may not cause harmful interference; it must operate at a low power level not in excess of 50 milliwatts ; and it has no protection from interference received from any other device. The Google Chromecast seems to me to be the easiest and least expensive way to get into casting and streaming. I'm trying to pick up at nearest post office but it's not working. And with the , it's added voice control to the mix as well. I use several of these, one attached to my living room stereo receiver and one to an upstairs stereo receiver.
Bluetooth is lossy and worse sound quality. Haven't done it in a while, from what I recall: If you go to a store you can request a price match in person but will need to show them the price on walmart. It has good streaming capability built in but there is some content that is not available. I didn't reply for 96 hours due to final exams and moving out of my dorm , so they replied back that because of my lack of response, they would mark the case as solved not even a follow up to make sure I had seen the first response before changing the status. Recently bought chromecast to enable casting and reducing wires and cables in my home, but my experience with casting wasn't as great as I expected it to be. Its not a bad device unless occasional connectivity problem. I don't hv cable but that's not because of this product.
It makes this product useless for my small children who do not have a device of their own to browse on. Prime is the only one I've used that doesn't automatically stream. Since it takes time to do it online, deal maybe sold out or over. The device is capable of cast audio from multiple internet sources, as long as your phone is cast capable and you are using the Google Home app or other cast capable apps. Google Home Mini and Chromecast are made for each other.
