The Google Chromecast Audio takes the lead in ultra-affordable multi-room Wi-Fi audio - allowing you to control music in just about any room in your house right through your phone. This streaming music dongle lets you hook up nearly any speaker or receiver to stream audio from your Android device or iOS app. Just slightly larger than an Oreo cookie, the Chromecast Audio features a hybrid 3.5mm optical port along with a short, five-inch 3.5mm cable to connect it to the Aux input on your hi-fi system, portable speaker or any old boom box! It's the perfect alternative to pricier music systems, and when combined with the Google Home, it becomes an all-around, voice-operated jukebox. Simply tap the cast audio/video button in the Google Home app on your phone, or use the built-in Cast buttons found on Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, YouTube, and more - listening to your favorite tunes is now possible in the palm of your hands.

Google's latest creation, the Chromecast Audio, is a perfect solution to streaming audio to a pair or pairs of powered speakers. We have a pair of powered speakers in our bathroom and another pair in our bedroom. By purchasing two Chromecast Audio devices, I'm able to play music in one room, or the ...see moreof the reviewer's review

If you have several devices with music or music apps on them or you have friends over who want to share music to listen to this is a much easier solution than using Bluetooth. Just start the app on your device and look for the Chrome-cast button, select the name of the Chrome-cast and send your musi...see moreof the reviewer's review

I got this to use with my Google Home to cast my audio to my home stereo system. I needed a special cable to connect the device to the AUX input jacks of the Bose stereo. It worked fine. Volume level is a bit low on the Bose. I normally listen to FM stations on volume level 25, but I have to turn i...see moreof the reviewer's review

Limited compatibility with iOS (of the services I use most, only Pandora and TuneIn work, but the music on my iPhone doesn't, and neither does Spotify Free), and the conectivity with my iPhone has been spotty at best. This may be a great product for Android users—when it works, it's great—but I can...see moreof the reviewer's review

I spent approximately 6 hours trying to implement this product on my stereo system. I have a dual band AC router. For whatever reason the product would never be recognized by my tablet or smartphone. Google tried to help but really in the end didn't. So I return the product. I will go with a sonos c...see moreof the reviewer's review

It worked fine with Pandora but that's about it. Couldn't use it with Spotify because Premium account is required. Didn't work at all from the PC running any app or Chrome. Returned it and now I'm going to get MUZO Cobblestone to try.

If your music app supports streaming then this is probably a great device. I am using amazon music on my android phone and the app does not support chromecast. I wish google would have just worked out a way to install this as an audio speaker that could be used to stream any sound. Mine is going b...see moreof the reviewer's review
