Google is fuckin laughable with their leaks
Dammit. I just bought the second generation!
No CC Audio?
A Reddit post about an Ars post abouta Reddit post…
I want voice assistant capabilities on my Chromecast audio, so I can talk to my living room stereo.
fingers crossed this gives access for bluetooth headphones. I know it might not be for everyone, but I really enjoy throwing on a pair of bt headphones and being able to walk around while listening to my shows off my laptop. I’ve been toying with the idea of buying a bt transmitter for my tv.
Redditor posts his story about getting a 3rd gen Chromecast from Best Buy 3 days ago. Every tech and news related site picks up on the post and publishes it on their own platforms. Not so diligent Redditors spend the next 3 days posting the major news / tech site’s stories back to Reddit. The cirlcle of internetting.
Here is my short story: tried Chromecast, try Miracast, ended up with HDMI wire.
I still use my Gen 1. One of the best investments ever, and saved so much electricity since the PC can actually be turned off from time to time.
I think mine is first gen, but regardless, it’s recentley started behaving like shit. trying to stream youtube is choppy as hell, any ideas?
Do all 3rd gen support 4K? I was about to buy the chromecast HD but I figured they’d be due for a refresh soon.
Maybe the Bluetooth is for headphones? That would be really cool, actually.
As a Chromecast n00b, can some Eli5 what they are used for?
I wonder if it’ll do Bluetooth headphones for audio output. One of my biggest peeves is streaming something from my old phone to Chromecast, but I can’t plug headphones into the phone to get an audio feed of what’s on the TV. I know why it doesn’t work that way, but it seems like such a simple thing… especially when I have a Wii U that can do that. I might be able to get rid of my Wii U if I can cast off my phone to Chromecast and then use Bluetooth headphones/earbuds to get the audio.
Chrome just announced game streaming so…
Excuse my ignorance by what benefits could one get from a Chromecast with Bluetooth?
I knew 3rd gen was coming out simoly because all our 2nd gen ones went on clearance, but i didnt know it was unannounced! We got our 3rd gem chromecasts in last night, and we cant sell them yet, our registers wont allow it, so i dont know what’s going on over at Best Buy! Seems like deliberate matketing!
I think bluetooth would be good for “casting” unsupported apps (apple music) OR maybe a stand alone remote to compete with a roku or firestick.
Sweet even easier music streaming
Is this the new one?
Google just dropped it like Eminem dropped Kamikaze
I think bluetooth have to do with [Project Stream](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sE53eSbzxoU), not to mention that some want a phisical remote controller for it too.
