Music is a bit part of life in our home. My husband is a musician. Our living room is full of instruments and there is always music of some sort playing in our house.
Now that we live in a society that is attached to its smart phones, it’s a whole new world. You can play music all day on your phone, but does it sound good?
How about using Bluetooth speakers? We’ve definitely gone that route, but now there’s a better way.
Chromecast Audio uses Wifi instead of Bluetooth, so you get a much better sound. It’s crystal clear, and you can’t even tell that it’s being streamed from your phone.
All you have to do is plug the Chromecast Audio device into your speaker and a power outlet, then download the app on your phone. Once you set that up, you’re ready to cast music from your phone (or other device) to your TV.
One of the best parts is that it doesn’t matter whether you have the latest and greatest speakers, or hand-me-downs from your grandparents. As long as there is an audio jack, you can use Chromecast Audio to play music on them from your phone, laptop or tablet.
If I don’t like the music my kids turned on Pandora in the living room, I can grab my phone and change the channel myself. Pretty cool, huh?
You can play, pause or adjust the volume of your music, right from your phone – as long as you’re in Wifi range. And don’t worry, your phone isn’t dedicated to this task. You can still use your phone normally without interrupting your music or draining your battery life.
You can use all of your favorite music and audio apps with Chromecast Audio too. Supported apps include Pandora, Spotify, YouTube Music, and Google Play Music. Learn more at chromecast.com/apps.
Want to spread the music vibes around your entire house? No problem. All you have to do is group your Chromcast Audio devices (that are connected to speakers in each room) and you can listen to the same song across all of your speakers.
I love this feature because my girls like to listen to music in their room while they’re cleaning and folding clothes. I also like to have music on in the living room while I’m watching dishes.
Now we can all listen to the same music from the speakers in our respective rooms. All without having clashing music playing at the same time.
If you’re looking for an easy way to stream music from your phone to the speakers in your home, check out Chromecast Audio.
