In this demo, I give you a physical description of the Chromecast Audio device, go through the setup via the Google Home app, and show you how to use it via the Google Home speaker.

Note - Chromecast Audio is purely to play music etc to speakers that can take a 3.5mm audio jack.  For watching Youtube, Netflix etc You will need a Chromecast device.

Since I purchased my AQ Smart Speakers several years ago which not only support Airplay but take a 3.5mm audio jack, I've been able to turn all of my Airplay speakers in to Chromecast Audio speakers.  This means that I can setup speakers in a group and control their volume etc independently of each other.

Looking forward to purchasing more Chromecast Audio devices.

In this demo I show you how to go about changing the Assistant speech language (I did from US back to Australia) as there appears to be more functionality with various languages: i.e. with the US voice there seems to be more games than currently with the Australian voice.

In this demo I show you how to enable the Start and End sounds for Google Home so that you know it has reacted.  I also describe the ChromeCast device and show you how easy it is to stream a movie from Netflix.
