    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.

    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.

    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.

    Not much better than previous version. Screen mirroring doesn’t work at all.
