Design

If we talk about design, the Chromecast Audio is a little black circular device about two inches around and approximately one and a half inch thick. The fact that it is an audio only device is showed by the black grooved top that looks same to a vinyl record with the Google sign in the mid. The sides and bottom of the device hold strong gray color plastic. There is also a very small indicator light on the side. Rest if you’re new to Google Cast, then you can grab the accurate Chromecast Setup procedure by getting in touch with professionals.

In the box, you get an amazing yellow 3.5 mm to 3.5 mm stereo cable that is 126 mm long. This is the similar size as the standard headphone cable. You will also a get a power cable that plugs into the Micro-USB port on Chromecast Audio device’s side.

Setup

Chromecast setup is easy, you will see the three steps are listed on the inside of the box. You need to plug one end of the stereo cable into the Chromecast and another end into your device’s port. Then you need to download the Chromcast App to your Apple or Android device and follow the facile directions. With the release of the Google Home device, the Chromecast app is now known as ‘Google Home’. You can also take Chromecast Support if you find any difficulty in the setup procedure.

When you open the audio app that you generally use to listen to tracks, you simply look for the little ‘cast’ icon which looks like a television with the signal of Wi-Fi. Make a tap on that icon and the music will begin playing via your audio device.

The Chromecast Audio device works on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz and 5 GHz network bands. Users noticed the lack of this ability in the original Chromecast device.

Quality & Compatibility

The Chromecast Audio does an amazing job of streaming audio. If you have been listening to musical tracks on your phone or tablet and you can stream it to a finest audio device, you will notice a big difference in quality. Users can use any ‘dumb’ stereo, sound bar, powered speaker, or AV receiver that has an ‘Aux In’ port. This option provides finest audio performance than you get with most Bluetooth speakers.

ACC

MP3

Ogg Vorbi

WAV (LPCM)

FLAC

It also more than 24-bit/96-khz decoding. The Chromecast Home app also grips a high dynamic range setting for each device.

Music Choices

You can facilely cast music via several major music services such as Spotify, Pandora, Radio, DS Audio NPR One, Google Play Music, Rocket Player, Rhapsody, TuneIn, and Plex. Google has a complete list of suitable services that you can check out. You will immediately find that two vital services, Apple Music and Amazon Music, aren’t supported on the iPads or iPhone apps. However, you can simply cast both Apple Music and Amazon music from Chrome browser on Mac and Windows PCs. You no need to download anything because the ability to ‘Cast’ is now built into the Chrome browser.

You can also user the Chromecast app on an Android device to stream musical tracks that are not explicitly supported.

With Google Home

Google Home and Chromecast Audio are a match made in paradise. Just use the Google home app to group Home and any Chormecast Audio devices that you may have and you can verbally begin your music just by asking Google Home. For instance, you can make a group called ‘Home’ with the Google Home device and your Bose radio (you can also use some another device) with the Chromecast Audio dongle. Then you need to say ‘Hey Google Play happy music on Home’. She rapidly assembled playing the music on both the Google and the Bose radio.

There’s only one caveat. Currently, you can only group Google Home and Chromecast Audio devices. You can’t do the addition of Chromecast device to that group. That is unlucky because many of us have sound bars and/or speaker systems linked to out televisions. Hint to Google: We would love to be able to play that harmonize the music played via the Chromecast TV device with our Google Home and Chromecast Audio devices. That would actually provide us an entire house audio solution. Hopefully, Google is working in addition to that capability.
