I have had chromcast for about 4 years, everything was working fine until a few days ago. Turned on TV to cast a show and chromecast will not connect to my WiFi. Ended up having to factory reset my chromcast and powering down my rooter. After setting up chromcast again (curiously the location had to be on), I could cast again. Next day, turn on my TV and chromcast wasn't connected to WiFi. I had to AGAIN factory reset my chromcast and rooter box. Not going to do this every time I want to watch TV... About to find something else.
I STILL don't have the option of adding calendars other than my main Google one... When will this be available??? The app is actually pretty good! I just wanted to comment that the home mini needs to be able to stream music via Bluetooth! Since there's no aux, it's very necessary. I don't want to buy chromecasts for every room or speaker. Please!
Requires turning on browsing and activity history across all of Google devices and websites to work. Requires constant location tracking on your phone to allow set up of any smart home devices, including a simple lamp switch. Users are not even given a choice on what they want to share to "improve" their experience. It's either everything everywhere, or google home won't work. Thanks google for making my choice so easy. Bye bye google home, hello Alexa!
Every single time it's the same. It works fine then you update the app and it plays up. The latest problems is that every time I want to watch something I have to reboot the Chromecast device, then set it up. It won't connect so I then have to reboot the device again, go through the set up again and it'll connect. Then the next day I want to watch something, and I have to repeat this process. It worked fine until the latest update. Please just leave things alone. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
Little more than a novelty. As long as you convert to all Google in Gmail it might work okay. But to be useful it needs to connect to other systems such as Office 365. I only keep one calendar and Google is not it. It's a good thing I got my Google Home Free or I'd be sending it back. For something useful argues Alexa which will integrate more with Business Systems.
I was supposed to get a free $25 Walmart coupon when I purchase it from Walmart. It says on the instructions that they are "easy steps" to follow, but there was no coupon. Also, everytime I try to open the shopping list, music, more settings in the app, it does not open. I like the Google Home Mini device except I wanna the issues addressed above to be fixed
