Anyone who knows me will tell you that music is a huge part of my life. I may not be very musically inclined, trust me I tried, but I love it. (Warning: I do sing. Badly, but I do sing right along with my favorite songs. Just don’t say that you weren’t warned!) I can’t seem to get anything done in our house without having a playlist going. It doesn’t matter if I’m working, showering, cleaning, or going to sleep. Music is on. For us, summer is filled with concerts. FILLED. We just can’t seem to get enough.
So when I heard about Chromecast Audio (available at Best Buy!), I really wanted to give it a try. This little device is an inexpensive way to turn any speaker into your dream speaker! It’s really easy to set up and you simply plug it into your speaker. Then your music can connect through wifi from your phone, tablet or computer. And since it uses WiFi instead of bluetooth the sound is amazing!
Here are some more benefits to using the Chromecast Audio!
- It’s so easy with your phone to play, pause, change the volume, etc from anywhere in your house! Plus, you can still use your texting and calling features without interrupting or draining your battery. (That’s a huge plus in my book! I hate streaming and having a friend call and no music in my background. And it always happens during one of my favorite songs!)
- It’s compatible with hundreds of audio apps. You can stream songs, radio stations, and podcasts through all of your favorites. It’s compatible with Pandora, Spotify, YouTube Music and Google Play Music. You can find all of the compatible apps here.
- Connect more than one Chromecast Audio to stream the same music on multiple speakers. PERFECT for playing inside and outside on your deck during a BBQ!
Working from home, I often will start working in one room and get up to go do something in another (like the laundry room, to restart the dryer for the third time or into the kitchen to start dinner) It’s so nice to be able to effortlessly bring my music with me. Having our Chromecast Audio hooked up in both places means that I literally don’t miss a beat.
It’s also small. So you bet that I plan on taking it with us on vacations. Sometimes when we rent a house for vacation they don’t always have bluetooth ready speakers. But now, it’s no problem! We can stream our music regardless! And honestly, since this uses the Cloud and WiFi – it’s better!
How do you plan on using Chromecast Audio for your music?
