Why is it that this app can only mirror cast and not just cast or have the option for both (would be nice to use my device for other things while casting)? Why is it that third party apps like local cast are butter smooth yet Google home the daddy and owner of chromecast lags and or buffers sometimes? Lastly your next update should be more user friendly by making the connect disconnect button on the first screen instead of finding it in the menu saving time and unnecessary steps
Using for Chrome Cast; When I enter my email address it tells me I'm not in the system. She I create a new address and try to use it, it says address already exists. When I skip the email option and get to the home main screen, I get a message saying "google home is having trouble accessing play services." I have tried this app with 2 different phones. The most current attempt was with a new S8+. Extremely disappointed with this app.
Disconnects from chromecast every 30 minutes. Obviously a problem with the dumb android battery optimization settings. But of Google can't be bothered to make it's own producta work together I'm certainly not going to figure it out for them. Just buy a roku and ditch this app and the junk hardware.
My Chromecast used to cast from my phone to Tv no problem. I've rebooted it like a million times and did the whole reinstallation etc and it's still not casting like it used to! So frustrating. My Chromecast is useless now bc it does NOT CAST like it's suppose to. Is it the update or what ? Worked fine for years til now.
Does it job to cast videos to tv via youtube. Native as well as app supported Mirroring and Audio cast functions are buggy, disconnect in middle of casting. so have to use separate apps like webcaster and allcast. Video casting via youtube is still buggy, disconnection occurs though not in middle of a video, there is room for improvement a suggestion to improve user experience. Privacy. is there a way to lock my device from casting? i have accidentally casted a video to tv which is infringing my privacy i get paranoid. also, switching off the cast dongle causes my youtube app to misbehave i can play video.
GOOGLE HOME/CHROMECAST NO LONGER WORKS WITH GOOGLE PLAY SERVICES! An error that has been a problem for at least a MONTH and is ridiculous as google is responsible for both! The updated app simply does not work. Also why does this version need to know my exact location all of a sudden to connect a device, chromecast and router that are all in the same room??? It is taking google too long to fix this or repond to any complaints. I am looking for an alternative now.
