Some thoughts about Chromecast Audio

So I’ve had this device for a little while. It works. It does exactly what it says it would, I can use it for Spotify and it works just great with that. But that’s not the problem. Not at all. The problem is that I don’t really have a use for it as yet.

Now I only got this device as it was on sale, down from £30 to £15, which I thought was a good deal, in fact a great deal. So I got it. Now I don’t know what to do with it really. Since getting it I’ve only used it on a couple occasions. Granted, it’s worked fine both times, but both were to test it out to see how it worked. Now I know. I also know that I don’t really need it either.

I know it’ll be useful for something, or if I get rid of it it’ll become useful straight away. That’s happened plenty of times before too. So I won’t just get rid of it for the sake of it. But it does need a reason to be kept about.

I’ve been meaning to get one of these for ages now, but I’ve never got around to it. However, a friend told me that they were on sale at Curry’s for just £15 so it seemed rude not to.

There’s not much in the box itself, it’s pretty minimal, but then it doesn’t really need much does it?

The device isn’t much bigger than an iPod Shuffle, maybe a tad bigger and seems very straightforward to get going with. One audio in, one power in, that’s it. Doesn’t need much else really.

When I get it all set up, when I have a minute, I’ll let you know what I think of it.
