    I got the Chromecast so I could "cast" my Xfinity programming to my TV. First the Chromecast requires a 5G connection. While my router has that my TV does not and I am not going out to buy a new TV to use a $25 add-on. Plus, Xfinity will not let you cast their programming from your phone to a TV anyway. I wish they had put information like that in the description.

    Chromecast is absolutely full of bugs and always has been. I've tried 2 versions and they have always been horrible. The worst part is they require you to use their "home app" as a go between when casting anything. Meaning that anything you cast is going through 2 apps at once and it creates ALL KINDS OF GLITCHES. I know it's cheap BUT YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR.

    I specifically told the Best Buy agent I need an item to cast my IPad and IPhone to my Samsung TV and she said this item will do that. After struggling for several weeks, everywhere on Google said it will not work with IPad or IPhone. It does NOT work with APPLE products as stated on the description.

    This product is so buggy. So many problems like always reconnecting to wifi. So annoying. Gonna try another one. Going to eat the price because it is past the meager return policy that Best Buy has. So disappointing.

    I didn't realize that Google Chromecast would not work with my projector because the Bluetooth speaker that I use with the unit is an Amazon Alexa. The options available for Chromecast are less than what you get with the Amazon fire stick.

    Spent way too much time searching for directions, solutions only to discover the device is fussy and incapable of a direct connection. Often called WiFi direct . I am running Oreo on a flagship phone

    Bought this to use with my windows 10 laptop but couldn't get google player to download and therefore was unable to use. Was very disappointed as it says on the box that it works with computer.

    Odd, nitch item. Worked in a pinch when I needed it. Outside of traveling no real use for it. I should have bought an adapter hdmi for my phone instead.
