Google Chromecast Audio
Have you ever arrived at your house riding home after a long day listening to your favorite song on Spotify and not wanting it to end? There have been times that I sat in my driveway to finish the song singing at the top of my lungs. I probably looked like a mad woman!! Now, I don’t have to sit in the car to finish my song fearing that restarting the app will bring up a different music selection. I can pause Spotify, go in my house, and continue playing the song over my Google Chromecast Audio through my already existing sound system.
What is the Google Chromecast Audio?
Google Chromecast Audio is a small device that allows you to stream music to the best speakers whether old or new, wirelessly from your phone, laptop or tablet.
Why I like the Google Chromecast Audio?
- Crystal clear sound, powered by the cloud
The first thing I noticed right away was the higher sound quality. Chromecast Audio streams over Wi-Fi which has many advantages over Bluetooth.
- Able to listen to your favorite tunes on your speaker
By using your phone, it’s easy to play, pause, or change the volume from anywhere in the home. And while streaming, you can still text or call without interrupting what’s playing or draining your battery.
- Enjoy hundreds of your favorite audio apps
Stream millions of songs, radio stations, and podcasts through apps like Pandora, Spotify, YouTube Music, and Google Play Music. You can find more at chromecast.com/apps
- Play music everywhere with Multi-room
If you want you can fill every room in your home with synchronous music. Simply group Chromecast Audio devices together so you can listen to the same song on multiple speakers.
I really loved how easy the setup process was for the Chromecast Audio. It took about 5 minutes. You plug the Chromecast Audio into the speaker via auxiliary cord. Then plug the power cable that comes with it. Grab your phone or tablet and download the Google Home app. Once downloaded open the app and it will automatically detect your Chromecast Audio and walk you through a few easy setup steps. Voila DONE! You will be listening to your favorite via Pandora, Spotify, YouTube Music and Google Play Music.
