Chromecast is really inconsistent
Charlie5446 on 8/20/2017
Just stops working for no reason. Really complicated instructions regarding how to reset
Doesn't work
PAR4DOX on 8/20/2017
It's completely random whether the Google Home app recognizes my device or not they just don't seem to work together consistently. I don't understand why Google play music would be something promoted in the app but you can't play it through the speaker. the whole ecosystem makes no sense
Crashes but still like it
98003mdr on 8/20/2017
This is the least expensive way to network your home or property for sound but it is glitchy. Spotify works better than pandora so I'm not sure if it is a google issue or the music provider. It does not work with iTunes at all.

Only works part of the time.
Love it !
Prsurfer53 on 8/19/2017
It's so awesome to use Google Home to control and use it for whatever info I need.
Instrumented H on 8/19/2017
Randomly fails and needs to be reset. Unstable code and touchy operation
Good App
Nate88_2004 on 8/19/2017
Good app but needs to save Wifi log in info. Tired of logging in every time I move it when only going between two different locations.
Makes life easier
LiLiLovesHerMusic on 8/19/2017
I love this!!! I can stream all day!
It will ok. On my mac, if it isn't broadcast audio.
Dan.Cary on 8/19/2017
It will only broadcast audio if you running you app in chrome. No sure I would have purchased had I known. Doesn't seem like an unreasonable expectation.
Great app
WoodrowCall on 8/19/2017
So far, everything is easy to use and works great!
wvupmomof3 on 8/19/2017
Chrome cast used to be the best, this new update forces me to reset my chrome cast every day or I can't pick it up by any app, even though it's working on my tv! Fix this!!!
Great app
fjbarrett on 8/19/2017
Awesome app thanks
Life saver
Cbittencourt on 8/18/2017
Perfect, 75% of time. 25% useless and unresponsive.
TCBeezie on 8/18/2017
This app will work perfectly and seamlessly, even across different streaming platforms, for days at a time. And then suddenly, for no reason at all and usually right in the middle of otherwise smooth casting, ERROR MESSAGE. No image, no picture, and no way to tell if it's the router, the Chromecast hardware, the Chromecast app, or some other glitchy flaw that broke the signal. Sometimes my phone cannot detect the device plugged into the television for days, despite having reset the wifi in my house. Sometimes I come home and turn on my television only to realize that the Chromecast has just been streaming without me all day. I'm a big fan of Google, but this app has never been 100% ready for prime time.
Keeps crashing
Sepoy- on 8/18/2017
Cannot change settings or make modifications to my profile. Keeps crashing on practically everything
Efrancis21 on 8/18/2017
Works wonderfully well.. just a tad slow but that's easy to live with
Fantastic app!
phelps65 on 8/18/2017
I have thoroughly enjoyed my Google Home speaker and app. Great job Google...Keep the updates coming.
Love it awesome app
talk2lalit on 8/18/2017
Love it
It should be disposable
angie6121 on 8/18/2017
Second chromecast i purchase and both (on different tvs) only lasted about 5 months. Not recommended unless you have money to waste.
Great. Very smart
Sunguy13 on 8/18/2017
10X better than dumb Alexa
Google home
wiggie6897 on 8/18/2017
Great speaker works great still missing basic features such as reminder and a to do list.
GoodyBo on 8/17/2017
Love it!
Forget it remembering your Chromecast
iPad nightmares on 8/17/2017
Ridiculous. I don't know what updates the developers did but the one time this app updated, now I continuously have to go through an entire resetting process just to get my Chromecast to be recognized by the apps. You really screwed this up guys.
Change it back
cmpersson on 8/17/2017
I don't know what you did with the latest update but now whenever I say "turn off my lights", it says which one. I have two lights assigned to the the room I designated "kitchen" in the home app, in my SmartThings app and in the hue app. Why the hell can it decipher that I want to turn off all the lights anymore!!!! Frustrating.
Works well
Ktaylor1113 on 8/17/2017
Sometimes it doesn't understand but overall quite good
Barely works
zboyl709 on 8/17/2017
Super buggy and slow. Works 1/3 of the time.
Works sometimes
Durgesh Vasmatkar on 8/17/2017
Firstly there is lot of things that you cannot do with this app. If YouTube and Netflix can be casted on TV, then why not photos? Very slow in detecting that something is already being casted. Chrome cast itself is buggy, and this app amplifies it.
It's good
christianw2324 on 8/17/2017
A good app to control devices
Constantly down and malfunctioning
Tiffgaghich on 8/16/2017
This app used to work a lot better. Now I am constantly not able to use the Chrome to watch movies because the app isn't pairing with my device.
Works great for me I don't know about you haters✌️😋✌️
flametoses on 8/16/2017
Works great for me i don't know about you haters ✌️😋✌️

Awesome app. I love it!
Best app ever!
KevinsApples on 8/16/2017
If this app doesn't solve all of your connectivity issues you need serious help! I can control all of my rooms music with different volumes or separate rooms on and the others off. This app along with Google audio has saved me thousands! THANKS GOOGLE!
Lizzy122682 on 8/16/2017
Works great
l/j/r. on 8/16/2017
It was working perfectly fine until it just gave out. It connects fine to the wifi and the app detects it but cannot connect. I go to my wifi settings and the hotspot doesn't even show up. It asks me to set it up from the beginning but it can't or rather, doesn't want to. Come on, Google. We, the customers buy your stuff so you definitely have the resources to fix it. And as some other users who contacted customer support were told to get a new one, um, no; not getting a new one because not all of us are made of money. PLUS, I barely bought mine a month ago. I refuse to buy a new device after only one month only because your updates can't get the job done. Get your stuff together and I will change my rating. This had better not be some ploy to get them to break so we buy new ones.

App performance.
Slapped jack on 8/15/2017
Still can't figure out how to use it for viewing other apps and screen mirroring is a little shaky. But over all. I recommend it.
Works for me!!!
Raj C. on 8/15/2017
I love my Chromecast and use it everyday. Google Home app is a great tool and I would recommend it to anyone.
Solid application

No issues that others have described. Helpful and crucial to my morning routine.

BillyBen51 on 8/15/2017
Ok so far - nice to be entertained w/o paying the cable bill
Works good
Susepz on 8/15/2017
Works great but wish it gave you more instructions on how to do things like setup reminders if you don't have a google supported phone
Voice recognition disaster
munish1980 on 8/15/2017
The updates are very annoying. Home control works then after the update it does not work. After another update it works again. Then guess what... they update it again and it stops working. Finally the voice recognition is terrible, it never recognises my voice no matter how many times I train it. I do not even want this feature but they insist on me having it to link my account.
Mccabe3181 on 8/15/2017
Best thing ever. I bought one for all rooms I pay $97 total for Internet and Netflix.
Excellent UX
i.sarfraz on 8/14/2017
Great app
Setup failure
CoCoAllenia on 8/14/2017
I recently changed my modem an hour ago so I had to setup my chromecast again. When the first chromecast came out years ago I did it via web browser on my laptop. So when it didn't find the connection to my old router modem it told me to download the Home App. I did and the connection failed each time. I tied to connect about 3 times and it all failed. Note that my wireless connection works on all my other devices and fire stick. So I went to website to set up my chromecast and it worked in less than 3 minutes. This app is dumb and a waste of time.
