Google's Chromecast Audio is a dongle that lets you turn any normal speaker system into a smart one. It is a simple device. Yet, there are a few steps involved in using it. Here we tell you how to use Chromecast Audio and what are the requirements.

How to use Chromecast Audio:

The Chromecast Audio can be used with smartphones and laptops. Follow the instructions below to install and use the Chromecast Audio:

For smartphones:

1.    Install the app Google Cast on the phone that you'll be using to control the Chromecast Audio. The app is available on Android, iOS, Windows, and Mac OS.

2.    Connect the dongle to a speaker. You can connect it using the aux cable that comes with the product. You can also connect it using RCA or Optical input cables, which can be bought separately.

3.    Connect the dongle to the power cable that comes with the Chromecast Audio.

4.    Open the app in the phone and follow instructions. The installation process is simple.


5.    Once the installation process is complete open a cast-supported app. There are plenty of such apps like YouTube, Saavn, Wynk, Netflix, Hooq, and many other.

6.    Play a song or video on the app and click on the Cast icon on the screen. This will connect your phone to the Chromecast Audio. And, well, that's all!

For laptops:

1.    To use the Chromecast Audio with a laptop you need to have Chrome browser installed.

2.    Install Google Cast extension on the browser. This will bring a Cast icon on the Chrome toolbar near the top right corner.

3.    There are sites that show a cast icon with the media on the page. Click on the icon to cast the audio to the Chromecast dongle.

4.    If you can't find a Cast icon on the page, you can click on the toolbar Cast icon. This will cast that tab's audio to the Chromecast.


That's it! You are all set!
