    My wife wanted this for her favorite TV shows. After setup and using it for a few days she was not satisfied with the it's functions and felt it didn't give her the variety she wanted. Now, there wasn't any problems with the Chromecast, it works it just didn't work for her.

    I have YouTube, Netflix and all these apps on my Tv already. I just need it to cast videos from my iPhone. However, lots of apps cannot find the Chromecast. I bought it with the Google Home Mini since I can get bundle discount. Now it looks like the Mini is much more useful!

    Not sure of this device will actually work how we thought. It's plugged into the TV, but the TV still has to be turned on, volume adjusted & turned off via the TV remote. The tech suggested a Logitech Harmony Elite as a solution but not tried yet.

    The Chromecast is a good product but the screen projections are not great. I have also had to perform a hard reset a few times. Set up is quick, but you cant switch between wifi networks if you have two or more routers like I do.

    I have iPhones and Apple TV. This becomes absolutely no use. Can’t believe chrome on iPhone is not supported. Turn on/off TV via voice through google home doesn’t work most of time. I bought it just try to use these 2 functions and they don’t work.

    First off, there is nothing wrong with this product. I really enjoyed the way I could control it with my google home mini, my only complaint and the reason I returned is because the picture quality never really got crisp.

    Works for what I need it for. The only thing I have come across is that I have to unplug it 2-3 times a week for it to reboot, as the streaming Logo doesn't come up on my device to cast.

    I have the older model and recently purchased the newer model and they work the same, just different styles. You’ll be fine if you purchase the older models, you’ll save money. Above all I like it. Wish it was cordless though.

    Bought for my kids room It works very well. I didn't know you need to set it up with your gmail account. This is the only thing i don't like. The remote control is your cell phone, so be mindful of this when you purchase.

    The chromecast is very good . I have another that I also use. I would have given this review 5 stars except you must use google home. This new unit is working fine but I must now get the older unit so I can use it again

    I bought this thinking it could be same as Apple TV but on android devices, but it wasn’t was like that. You’ll be able just to share on your tv few apps. But for the money it’s ok.

    Have had it less than a year and sometimes it just won’t stay connected. I have to completely unplug and reset/setup to have it work again. Otherwise it’s awesome

    I don't see the point of using this to stream Netflix.It might be useful if all you watch is YouTube.I don't like to use my phone as a remote,I would use a fire stick before the Chromecast.

    Only good if you want to cast video off of your computer or phone. Was thinking there was apps like the fire stick but there isn’t. I like how it goes works with out any flaws with the google homes.

    I have an older tv and thought this was perfect. Installed but it never completed the install. I believe it’s due to my tv so I can’t really say. However, it was easy to start the install!

    works great for YouTube and other apps.. easy install and setup - but not Amazon Prime! has been a pain to deal with - getting it configured properly ( for Prime) has been hard.

    Well I bought this so I could play a game on my tv, but was unaware that there is no offline version, and that it always has to be connected to WiFi.

    Wanted to mirror my phone to TV but I need another third party app since I have an IPhone. Wish it could mirror straight with iPhone. Everything else works great.
