If any of you follow me on Instagram, you’ve more than likely seen a video of my son Nash dancing. Everyone morning while I make breakfast we play music in our kitchen and he dances. It’s one of my favorite times of the day. To see how happy it makes him is the perfect way to start your day.
I recently got asked to try out Google’s Chromecast Audio, which allows you to play music on your speakers in your home, via WiFi from your phone, tablet or computer and needless to say I was excited to try it out. We have speakers in our kitchen, living room and in our bedroom but I was only able to sync up to them via Bluetooth. The problem with that is, I was only able to sync with one speaker at a time and the audio quality was not the greatest. It’s interesting because I actually didn’t know that the quality was bad until I was able to stream via WiFi, wow, what a difference. The hi-res sound quality is amazing and crystal clear!
We hooked up the Chromecast Audio to our speakers in our bedroom as well as a Gramophone we have in our office. One of my favorite things about the device is that it’s super small and discreet, it’s just a little bigger than a 1/2 dollar. It’s super easy to use too, all you have to do it plug it into the audio input via the cable provided, set up the device on their website in just a few minutes and you are ready to go.
Another thing I love is that you are able to play music in multiple rooms by grouping Chromecast Audio devices together. Nash loved this part! We were able to play music in our kitchen and continue listening in our bedroom without missing a beat. You can stream millions of songs, radio stations, and podcasts through apps like Pandora, Spotify, YouTube Music and Google Play Music.
If you are looking for a great way to have your whole house stream hi-res sounds on the speakers your already own, be sure to check out Google Chromecast Audio. You can purchase them here for $35 now!
