Possibly! These are kinda nice though because they act as a standalone device so you can start Pandora or Spotify and forget about it, use your phone as normal without any of the alerts or anything going through. WiFi is also supposed to have better quality than Bluetooth and the audio allows you to sync them up so that different rooms with different speakers can play at the same time together.

Casting via wifi is so much better than BT. It's easier, faster (fewer pairing/connecting issues) and there's no range restrictions; as long as you're on the same network, you can send audio to a Chromecast.

Yeah, via WiFi. So to play Spotify off your phone into your home entertainment system, for example

Yes, my home had traditional speakers Built-in in the ceiling and wall. I brought one connected to the kitchen speakers on bf. Then I can stream the music from my phone and the Google gone Mini. I plan to buy two more for the bathroom and bedroom.

Please correct me if I am wrong - this device can only cast audio that are compatible to be casted by chromecast. e.g. I cannot open any xyz website that doesn't have cast and cast music from that to my audio speakers.

Correct I can cast google play (or spotify and possibly a few others) but not the audio from youtube or archive.org. I also use google assistant on my phone instead of the Google home device.

thanks. So if I open up for example cnn.com and want to cast the news audio clip to my speakers via this device, it won't be possible.

For what do you have to use google assistant with this device?
