These days everything is Bluetooth, wireless, o r WiFi compatible. The last time my internet tech was out to the house to help troubleshoot a problem he informed me I had 23 devices hooked up to my WiFi. I wouldn’t be surprised to find out that number has gone up since then. While most everything is ready to go out of the box there are still items either old, or cheaper in price that are not Bluetooth or wireless.
A perfect example is a speaker my son bought. Not realizing it was not Bluetooth he soon found that in order to use it he had to connect to his phone to the speaker via hard wire. This didn’t really help because the speaker was on his dresser and his phone was near him, because it is rare he isn’t on it playing games, taking, or texting. The next time I went into his room I didn’t see the speaker. He said he put it away since he couldn’t really use it.
Google Chromecast Audio
However we have found the solution to make his speaker able to be used conveniently once again. Google Chromecast Audio allows us to turn his normal everyday speaker into a WiFi speaker. With this little inexpensive device, he can now listen to music on his phone to his favorite fire dancing speaker. Because Chromecast Audio uses WiFi instead of Bluetooth, he can stream crystal clear hi res sound and enjoy not only his music but the light show this speaker provides.
By using his phone with the Google Chromecast Audio he can continue to text or call with no interruption while playing, pausing, or changing the volume from anywhere in the home. Also because Chromecast Audio uses WiFi it won’t drain your battery. While my son is only in need of using his Chromecast Audio with one speaker you can create a surround sound type system in your home by grouping Chromecast Audio devices together listening to the same things on multiple speakers.
