Keeps getting disconnected. Damn irritating. Only compatible to play hotstar. Having issues with other apps. Don't buy. This is rubbish. In today's time of 4G I just bought a wifi router for Chromecast n its the most pathetic experience. They should have thought about 4G compatibility
Why have you disabled the ability to cast from a mobile device whilst connected to a mobile hotspot? I used this all the time but it's been knocked out by the latest update. Not all of us have fast WiFi networks remember. Reinstate please! Useless to me now. Google - everybody's telling you this but why haven't you responded or fixed this? Do you even read these comments? Customers were enjoying cast and now you've broken it. My home WiFi is not fast enough to stream.
Worked beautifully for months I could screen mirror while using my phone's hotspot. Then suddenly it stops functioning and all chrome support can say is " we are aware and working on the issue, oh and by the way the app and device were never mentioned to functioning this way." , I feel chumped. Google is well aware that many of it's Chromecast owners buoght into the device and app for this specific use. Now to pull out the purpose of owning the device for pure financial purposes is garbage. I want my money back. 40 bucks of my hard earned money down the drain.
Got it back at black friday, on a whim, and found it interesting. It couldn't do much at that point, but it knew when I said play a song, play it on Spotify, so I kept it. Didn't use it for a while, but got a new smart switch and found out it's compatible. I'm finding it's learned a lot since 2016, and I hope it learn more as the year goes on. PS, please Google, add that feature I mentioned about Spotify and Google assistant to Android. I hate when I'm driving, and can't say, play this song without it going to play music.
Chromecast still a regularly used device. Google home used everyday to basically be a glorified light switch. Thing that bugs me is the blip/card about LGBT "celebrate pride"... Why? Why is sexual orientation something that needs to be pushed? I don't care that Google is all for it. But don't make it so I can't take it off... Also why is it at the top of the list? In Google Now I was able to say things I was interested in and not interested in and it would hide it from regular viewing, not that I couldn't go deeper into settings and turn stuff on again, but at least hide it. I don't want my kid skimming through this app and finding that. Therefore. I'd say it's not a good family app, and the 'Everyone' badge wrongly tagged.
Unfortunately the Hdmi CEC does not work anymore. What's up with that? Yes, I have done all of the above. as well as casting from different devices. All apps no longer have the ability to pause or play with remote. This changed with the recent update. FIRMWARE: 1.24.88007 NO HELP AND STILL NOT WORKING . USELESS!!
