Had this for just over a week. It worked perfectly for just a couple of days. Then the first update stopped any radio to be cast either via voice control or on-screen button select. No after last night's update there's no news either. Basically it gets worse with each update and not better as it should. A £130 ornament.
Crashes on startup - Home is having trouble with Google Play Services error reported. Selection of OK and Home crashes - Home is now useless. Same error reported in gmail app, but that doesn't crash. Nexus 7, Android 6.0.1
Don't know what is wrong with chromecast 2 developers, they don't allow users to direct connect to chromecast 2. Why we need connect to wifi for everything. In india broadband is not so common so we want to directly connect to chromecast 2
Quite easy to use
I love using my chrome cast for Netflix and the like. It's so simple yet so powerful. All that said I'm having a problem playing music through Spotify. I'm not sure who is at fault here, Spotify or the Chromecast but I'm writing 2 review anyway. An ad played and then my phone closed the Spotify app while streaming. Now whenever I try to stream to the Chromecast it shows he ad playing without sound. I love playing music to my TV but now I can't enjoy that.
Occasionally updates break casting functionality. This time, if I cast audio from Google Play Music to my Chromecast audio group or any single player, then when I get in my car or put on my headset, Bluetooth controls, like play/pause, won't work until I turn Bluetooth off, reboot the phone, then turn Bluetooth back on. Super aggravating and makes me not want to cast, which renders a lot of audio investments useless. Galaxy S7 Edge. Hopefully it will be fixed soon
