No Bluetooth Speaker Support 1/5
I have a DOT and use it primarily for controlling lights and music. My music is on Google Play and was glade when the came out with a mini. It arrived today to find I cannot connect my speaks. Not having a way to connect my Bluetooth speakers is a deal breaker. Google you missed the mark on this one.
I absolutely love needing to disconnect and reconnect to my Chromecast every single time I need to pause, fast forward or rewind. And the volume controls make me want to rip my balls off so future generations do not have to deal with this mediocre application.
It worked, updated, now it doesn’t work 1/5
I was using the app last night and it updated today and now chromecast no longer works and it won’t sync/see my device. REALLY disappointing! They Should have left it alone. So much for an update...
Sometimes it works sometimes it won't stop buffering 3/5
I have a love/hate relationship with Chromecast. Connection and streaming can work flawlessly and recently I've been suffering with continuous buffering and stream freezing.
After checking both my internet speed and connectivity I then checked my router and the connection is great.
Not sure what's going on but can it stop already. I wonder if others are having the same issues?.

every time after i connect to my chromecast and then leave the wifi area, the chromecast is unrecognizable and i need to reset the chromecast
Heavy handed onboarding 2/5
The onboarding UI manipulates users into sharing Bluetooth and logging into a google account. All I want to do is manage my chromecast.
Work fine before you messed around with it 1/5
By Oz lotus
For making 3 of you Cromecast devices into junk that will end up in a land fill
And waist my Time and Money
On a device that was not cheap but worked before and no longer dose since you guys had to screw around with graphics and the software that were fine before
I loved this app, but ever since I installed a Nest to my home and tried to link it up, the google home app keeps crashing. It opens and then immediately goes black and crashes.
Need an account to use app 1/5
Really disappointed in the fact that I need to link my gmail with the Google Home app. Unfortunately I had set my phone to auto update all apps and now I am locked out of my Google Home app because I do not want to log in with my gmail account. I believe that Google is doing this so they can learn more about what you are watching and this is yet another way for them to infiltrate your life and learn more about you so you can be bombarded with even more advertisements. This is the end of the line for Google Home on my phone. I would rather use a 3rd party app without having to set up an account and I am saddened by the fact they choose to go this route. I miss the old version where I didnt have to sign in so now auto updating apps is off and I’ll make sure to read the update description before hitting update. Thanks for the lesson Google.
App doesn’t work 1/5
The feed will not work tried contacting google for help NOTHING. So I guess I’ll leave crappy review
Can't connect in motel 1/5
No help from app connecting to motel set up
Can't stay connected 1/5
Can't go 5 minutes without it telling me I can't find my wifi network inside the room as the router. I have fiber broadband lol and my phone can connect from 100+ feet away.
Won't find devices after following instructions 1/5
Add devices doesn't work properly.

Half the time I have to keep closing the app and rebooting my chromecast because it doesn't find the devices what a pos
Google Home 5/5
Great app! I just wish they had more sports channels
Constantly crashes 1/5
We have a chrome cast that crashes more than it works. This is our second one, as the TEch support told us the first one was just old. The new one has to be reset any time you want to use it. What a waste of money.
Doesn't make sense 1/5
Start movie... where did the Chromecast icon go? It disappeared. Works for YouTube that's about it.
Because it's useless. 1/5
By greg petre
Google gets it, they understand how people want an all around set up app that is basic as possible, maybe because we are lazy however the app is totally user friendly!
It serve its purpose but has glitches 3/5
Sometimes I have to trouble shoot it a bit to get it to connect. When I open Netflix or Hulu apps I don’t see the chromcast logo and have to open this app, make sure it’s connected to my tv and then reopen the Netflix/Hulu app and the icon shows up. Other than that it works.
Why so many apps 1/5
Why in the world are there so many apps to do all of these different functions that are all interlinked to one another? All of this could be consolidated into one single app I don’t understand why in the world there is a YouTube, YouTube TV, Google Home app… Really, three different apps for using the chrome cast? That’s ridiculous
The apps themselves are good but the overall UX is terrible.
By Shopping is great

Kids love it, mama loves it , great to have one at home .
Doesn’t work when I’m WiFi 1/5
Doesn’t work on WiFi, only on network. Plus super slow. But I do love the actual google home.
Piece of garbage 1/5
By Mes Nat
No it’s so disgusting I would have given 0 rating if possible not able to set up the previously okay chrome cast but this app does nothing I am gonna throw this piece of trash out and buy Apple TV, you get what you paid for so pleas e save your $$
Apps recognizing chromecast 1/5
much of the time the apps from the google App Store do not Recognize my chrome cast to be able to mirror the broadcast
Pain in the rear to keep this working 2/5
I finally get this thing to respond and then it reverts to the mode of "there are some basic settings that need your permission first" mode. I'm getting Alexis
Not user friendly 1/5
Shouldn't have to feel like you're hacking into a program to make it work!
Can’t manage Chromecat without signing in 1/5
Either bring back the dedicated Chromecast app or remove the requirement to sign in. I have no intention of signing into Google to manage a device I’ve owned for years, and for which I’ve never needed a Google account in the past. I’d rather use a competing streaming device.
By SXSW Bound
This app takes forever to load. The animated spinners are cute but it would be great to access content more seamlessly.
Can't cast anymore? 1/5
Can't cast on iPhone 6 Plus? I'm struggling why it stop working. The cast option has been removed. I can access to cast on my Samsung but I can't cast my iPhone. Only reason why I gave it a 1 star review because without casting I see this app useless.
Doesn’t do much. 1/5
Can’t mirror my phone via chrome cast. Can’t cast presentations. Just Netflix, Hulu, and YouTube.
Why do they keep hiding shopping list? 2/5
By Brooklyn Beam
New update out this week makes it impossible to access your shopping list within the Google Home app. Goodbye this app for shopping list, Hello Apple’s Reminder app
not easy to use 2/5
not easy to use
Poor connection 1/5
I have an iPhone 8plus, it will not work well with connecting to Chromecast. Whenever I press ready to cast, it will not connect. I use Spotify and other radio apps as well, it will not see the Chromecast Audio device. The WiFi I’m using has been tested. Is working well.
Latest not greatest 1/5
I used to be able to use Home app for chrome cast without having to sign into a google account. Why must I now? I also used to be able to search for shows in the app but that’s no longer an option. Why so many changes? I haven’t found a reason for this app anymore
New App is a step backwards. 2/5
By Gopher Adam
I just upgraded the app. Although it looks cool, I've lost functionality. It no longer "talks" to my thermostat. It says the thermostat is not connected, despite it clearly showing connected -- and I've disconnected and reconnected numerous times. I've had retrain voice control too.
New look.... new bugs....no fun.
No account 1/5
I do not what to give an account to control my google systems.
I don’t like... 1/5
the voice when translate a sentence in english to spanish! Please come back to the older voice!
Apparently I wasted my money on the Chromecast Ultra. Had to hard reset it twice just to get it set up. Now the only way to get it to connect to this app is a power cycle. I’m sure I can find something better & more reliable to use the hdmi input on my AVR.
Love it 5/5
By Good and bad👍👎
This app is great
Google Home 1/5
Cannot connect to chrome cast after several tries. Ambiguous instructions hard to follow how to connect to another WiFi disappointing
