    Not worth the aggravation

    I have two of these- the first model and then the newest model. I stopped using the first as every time I tried to cast from my Hulu app to would suddenly disconnect after 20 min and I was forced to reset it every 20 min. Got so frustrated threw it in a drawer. Tried again with this new model a few month ago- and surprise it happens again. Every time I try to cast from my app on my iPhone- it disconnects every 20 min and my Google Home app is useless as it can’t find the Cast and the best trouble shooting it can ever say is check my internet connection- which is fine. So again the only option is to get up and unplug and replug the device. Not worth the aggravation it causes. So disappointed in Google.

    Makes the most sense for Google users

    My main concern is that it's not intuitive enough to the point where you solely rely on voice commands and it's also linked only to those who own or use a smartphone device linked wirh a Google account, you can get Roku for about the same price for the standard set plus 30 days of free cable on sling, for a single user that uses Google products as their main source of interaction I will say that it works very well since the Google commands are very efficient for the most part and it works really good when using other google products such a Google mini, etc.

    I bought this Chromecast to see if it can be used to cast stuff from my phone to the tv but turns out it cannot cast apple devices without using purchased apps. Other apps like Netflix,Hulu,Youtube etc which it does are already in built in modern tv's so why would anyone need a Chromecast to do it. Waste of money.

    I thought this was going to hook up to my tv and sync with my google home mini so I could just speak and turn on Netflix. I didn’t realize it was more of a mirroring item. If your looking to mirror your phone or computer then this will be for you.

    Sales associate stated it would work with iphone but couldnt get iphone to reconize it to stream through tv. My buddys android phone it worked and maybe cause he has older phone it would freeze up when streaming so returned.

    This is our 2nd Chromecast. The first one worked fine. We bought this one for our 2nd TV (an older Samsung). Unfortunately, the Chromecast work work with this TV.

    Set up was easy but using it requires the smart phone to be used as a remote control. There should be a description of no remote control included.

    Works nice but I would recommend upgrade on the quality. Also, did not or won't work with my PrimeVideo account.

    If you're looking for a media player I would pass. Kind of a pain to have to cast everything from phone. Felt clunky.
