You have probably heard of Chromecast for TV before. If you follow me regularly, then you probably have read my Google Chromecast review already.
Well, today I want to tell you about a Google Chromecast that you might not know about. I know that I only recently became aware of this product, and it is the Google Chromecast Audio.
What is Chromecast Audio?
Chromecast Audio is a small device that plugs into your speaker for streaming music through Wi-Fi.
Once set up, simply use your iPhone®, iPad®, Android phone and tablet, Mac® and Windows® laptop, or Chromebook to cast your favourite tunes to the best speakers in the house.
The Chromecast Audio can be hooked up via RCA, 3.5 mm, or Optical. It comes with the 3.5 mm cable and I put it right into the speaker’s AUX input and it was ready to go. I just had to download the Google Chromecast Audio App and then do the setup, within minutes I was casting music from anywhere I wanted to the speaker.
Here are the features of the Chromecast Audio……
Easily cast music, without the hassle of pairing
Tap the Cast button from music apps to hear the music instantly on your speakers. Search, play, pause, queue songs and turn up the volume right from your phone – anywhere in the house.
Listen to your favourites, any time
Enjoy over 30 million songs from music services like Google Play Music, Deezer & Spotify. We’re constantly adding new apps, so there’s no end to the music, radio stations and podcasts that you can enjoy.
Plus, stream any audio from your Android phone or your laptop
For apps that are not yet cast-enabled or music stored on your device, you can stream audio from your Android phone or tablet to the speaker. Or, use your laptop to stream music and audio streaming websites from the Chrome browser.
Tap to party
Your friends and family can join in the fun, too. Anyone in the home can cast music to your speakers using their own phones – no additional setup or pairing required.
Our awesome speaker in the house just became smarter with the Chromecast Audio. I do not need to pair anything. I just need to pull up what I want to listen to say on my phone, tablet, or computer, and then touch the cast button and I am instantly listening to what I want to hear.
There might have even been a few Tom Cruise – Risky Business type dance scenes in our house lately with the music a blaring courtesy of our Chromecast Audio. 🙂 I might deny this if asked though. 🙂
Okay it is pretty obvious that we are in love with our Chromecast Audio. I am so happy that I discovered the Chromecast Audio. I recommend that you check it out for any music lover in your family. It is an affordable unit that makes your speaker smart so listening to music becomes even more enjoyable than it already is.
