Description

    Overview

    What is Chromecast Audio?
    Chromecast Audio is a small media streaming device that plugs into the AUX input of your speaker, making your speaker WiFi enabled. Use your iPhone®, iPad®, Android phone or tablet, Mac® or Windows® Laptop, or Chromebook to cast your favourite music, radio stations and podcasts to any speaker in the house.


    Key Features

    Easily cast music to your speakers
    Tap the Cast button from your music apps to play on your speakers. Play, pause and turn up the volume right from your phone, anywhere in the house.

    Listen to your favourites, anytime
    Millions of songs, radio stations and podcasts from apps like Spotify, Google Play Music, and other favourites. Discover more at chromecast.com/audio.

    Mirror any audio from your Android phone or Chrome browser
    For apps that are not Cast-enabled, mirror exactly what's playing on your Android device to your speakers. Or, mirror any music streaming website from your laptop's Chrome browser.

    Higher quality sound
    Chromecast streams straight from the cloud so you get continuous high-quality sound - even when you leave the room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New life to old HiFi system These thngs give new life to old HiFi systems. In my opinion you cant beat traditional big speaker systems for quailty punchy sound. A Chromecast audio alows you to stream hight quality music through your system with ease. A 5 minute set up procedure , just once, and you're off. Stream music wirelessly from your PC, Laptop, Ipad or any Android device. Seriously you NEED one of these. The price is great for what it does. Just one hint, get the Chomecast plugin for your Chrome browser.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from replaced all of my apple airport units with chrome My Airport kept dropping out and someone mentioned Chromecast audio...Best thing I ever did. No drop outs, ease of use and set up and multi room feature with the google cast app. The one draw back it won't stream iTunes, but hey so many other choices and SONOS should worry this does the same at a fraction of the cost... Bargain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to set up and small size This is set-up in my garage using a self powered speaker system. It works great and streams fine from my wireless network situated inside the house. It was great value for money and was really easy to set-up through my android based phone. The only issue I have is that to stream though Spotify, you must have a premium account. Pandora, Tunein and Deezer work fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for updating your old stereo The sound is so much better than using a Bluetooth connection. Great once set up but have to do a bit of searching to get it to do what I wanted it for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good, some apps not supported Odd that youtube and the default music player on my old GSIII don't support it - however there is supposed to be a feature to cast all phone sounds to it whenindividual apps don't support it... but only on kitkat and above. Otherwise great - easy setup, small, came with power supply, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I now have two Chromecast Audio devices operating in tandem. Works perfectly & much more reliable that bluetooth streaming in my experience.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Chromecast I am pleased with the service with JB HIFI but not delighted with Chromecast. I was hoping for a product that would allow streaming from Spotify but also allow me to access my Itunes library and play my owned music product on to my stereo. It does the cater for former but not for the latter. The Apple play app does not have the means to use the Chomecast Home App which is required to use the Chromecast device. I have had some usability by downloading the All Cast App - still exploring that option. I would have been better off with a simple bluetooth receiver.
