Avril, Harrow

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great being able to play music, same or different, in different rooms of the house.
Bad points:
Beware though....worked to begin with and then it completely messed up my internet and gmail and on checking small print there can be problems on compatibility with Google and upgrading is required. Took my son over three hours to discover the problem and get my internet back on course. However chrome cast now disconnected until upgrading sorted.
The chrome cast kept making my router switch to default setting which then threw out all devices connected to my computer (e.g. cameras) working on different code and password.

Steve, London

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Amazing device, turns any speaker into an audio streaming device that works seamlessly with spotify, google musinc and many other audio apps.

Multiple devices can be grouped together and audio streamed simultaneously giving sonos style multi room audio for a tenth of the price.

Supports optical out for connection to high end devices, so my old hifi suddenly has a new lease of life.

DAJ,

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great little gadget at a great price, especially if you purchase the Chrome Cast and Chrome Cast Audio together. Incredibly easy to install and set up, also very easy to use. If you have a compatible Windows, Android or Apple device, you can in part enjoy some of the features of a Smart TV with these brilliant little devices.
Bad points:
Soon after I purchased mine, Google in their infinite wisdom and as seems to be a constant habit upgraded the brilliant and simple "Google Cast" app which worked very well indeed. Since they changed to the now Google "Home" app, casting is constantly disconnecting. On some of my older devices that worked before the cast option just isn't there anymore which has annoyed me somewhat as obviously I can no longer cast from devices that I could previously. If you have an older version of Android or Ios, suggest you double check if your device may be affected by this change before you buy!!

Chris, Cardiff

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Small. Easy to set up. Stable.
Bad points:
You need a paid subscription to stream google play and Spotify to it. Which I don't have and I didn't realise before I bought it (I didn't read the info). It's not as supported on iPhone apps as widely as the air play is. 3rd party streaming apps are generally pretty poor. I wouldn't recommend it unless you pay for streaming services.
