Great App Design
Feature rich options, smooth connectivity with low latency. Worth upgrading to the premium. It could use group play and keep awake options to be even better. Not sure if I have background activity set properly on my end, but Ive noticed some drops when the screen is off or when the app isn't using the foreground. All in all, very useful.

Brow Beaten with Premium Ad!
I would have given this maybe 3 stars even though it constantly has to be reconnected. However, the ad for the Premium version is so annoying and literally pops up every second, I couldn’t even type a single word in my email to the company without the ad interrupting. Trying to connect to your device in almost impossible because the add pops up so fast you can’t click on your device fast enough before the ad is in you face again. And don’t bother clicking that you want to continue with the free version because they will still beat you over the head with getting the Premium version every second-literally! Maybe Google thinks if they bother you enough you’ll break down and buy the Premium version to shut the ad up. Some of us are older and know that being bullied and brow beaten to buy a product, is just flat out not going to happen. We find a better option. We do not cave to internet manipulation. I’m going to have to find a better streaming option because Google will not take “no” for an answer.

Must be a less annoying way to cast
Downloaded today because I needed to find a way to cast from iPhone to a google powered TV. The ads for this app would always pop up when doing online searches on how to cast from iPhone to a DirectTV connected TV. Kudos to their marketing team for overwhelming any online search results for casting google search. If only their developers worked as hard as their marketers. Would not recommend. At all. Annoyingly forcing in app to upgrade and pay an annual lump sum before you could even try to see if it works. I bit the bullet and purchased a year plan just to even see if it would work. Mistake. It DID connect eventually (not the most intuitive app) but freezes every time after about 15 seconds of any vid playing or screen mirroring or if I switch screens/apps/safari to play any videos. What a waste. Would love to cancel that payment, but odds are it’s too late. I’ll keep searching for a better way to connect. should’ve read more reviews before purchasing. I advise everybody to do the same.

DO NOT DOWNLOAD
This app does not work at all. All it actually does is ask you to pay money in order to use premium features. It will keep on asking you to upgrade with annoying pop ups and ads and even after repeatedly closing the intrusive adware it will still show up again! It won’t do anything other than this and also it kept on crashing frequently when I was trying to cast my files. Tried to contact the developers and no response. I am just going to delete the app now please don’t download I’m sure there are better apps out there that do work instead of this useless program that is more like a cash grab rather than a useful mobile app. So again please beware and DO NOT DOWNLOAD else you will be charged huge amounts of money and they won’t refund you or even reply back to you! Highly dissatisfied user...

Better then expected
Thank you. For creating such device. At first I didn’t know what I was doing it took an hour to complete whole setup, that was my doing. But when I got it running on my projector the family had a great time with the experience. It was like bringing the drive in theater to your backyard. Of course I only watched videos. Overall great product, the one time subscription is a few dollars more then monthly subscription it only makes sense to do it. Keep at it, your dreams are all becoming reality.

Don’t waste your money or time
App doesn’t even work. Downloaded it to cast videos from Safari, but the browser feature does nothing. Connected to my tv, pulled up the browser, I can bring up sites, but it doesn’t cast to my tv or give me an option to. So I tried the screen mirroring, it would cast the video, but will not play the sound on the tv speakers. The audio continues to come through the phone. Tried the airplay feature to play the audio through the TV, didn’t work either. Also, the video is a tiny box in the middle of the screen, and if I tilt my phone to make the video full screen on my phone, it makes the video vertical on the tv screen. This app is completely useless

Thought it was going to be great, but....
I thought this app was going to be fantastic, I was really looking forward to using it. But whenever I actually got on the app I started to click on presentation details, and things like that. Such as music videos and photos and every time I did it said limitation needs premium, or something stupid like that. I got so fed up that I decided you know what I’m gonna let google know about this. If you agree with me give this app one star. I’m not paying $25 for some stupid premium thing that’s going to last me like maybe a month. Everything On this app is so expensive. I don’t like this app. I love Google but this is one of their stupider ideas.

Ads
Had the older version of Chromecast app to acreen nitro from my phone. It worked like a charm. Forced to use new app (tried two and still don’t even know which is the right app. The free version is useless- Ads pop up nonstop making the app useless. They are also labeled in a way that is confusing resulting in signing up or opening things you don’t want. Going to throw out my Chrome cast device and go buy abutter Roku device. Less aggravation, easier interface and not being bombarded with ads. I expect more from Google… if you paid for a device you should be able to use it without extra fees and aggravation

Wast of money
I bout this Chromecast to play my phone threw my tv I plugged it into my tv and for no reason it needs to be connected to WiFi threw the app and the app can’t connect to it unless it’s already connected to WiFi so literally you can’t use it then after messing with the app for a bit I found out you have to PAY 25$ MONTHLY just to screen mirror witch is the hole point in buying this stupid thing so I wasted 65$ on this stupid little plug because u can’t use it and u need to PAY MONTHLY just to put my phone screen on a tv stupidity at its finest i wish I was able to just plug my phone charger into the tv and then phone but nope.

Scam ads
******DO NOT DOWNLOAD. PHISHING / FRAUD SCAM. NOT MADE BY GOOGLE************++ I download the app to be greeted with a page to “activate my account” which brought me to a page where it said I needed to enter my credit card info. So I did thinking it was google. I then find out I subscribed and gave my credit card info to a shady business who has already charged me twice for no apparent reason. This is giving me great stress.

DONT BUY PREMIUM OR DOWNLOAD THHIS APP😤
Hello , sorry but this app has robbed us 4 times. We been trying to work this app but it has failed 4 times. We did are best to give this app another chance the 1st time we got it we bought it 3 times ! Which costed $20 each! And then when we tried to start casting it said “Buy premium” and we did so how is this possible. Now today I bought it to give it last chance in my phone , sadly I bought it and it didn’t work! Please don’t buy the subscription! Don’t waste ur time or money btw when u try the 3 free trial it does work to make u feel like it does! It doesn’t !

The worst app ever
I’ve never written a review before but this app is so poor and the subscription cancellation process is so convoluted and borderline deceptive that I highly recommend that you save your money and look elsewhere, I spent hours trying to cancel this app. I got no response from anyone / there doesn’t seem to be any customer service whatsoever. If you must try this app, use the free trial - do not sign up for the premium no matter how invasive or persistent it is. It doesn’t stream without jumping every few seconds. The developer response will say to email their support: Good luck with that.

Not very useful to newbie like myself
Where’s the remote emulator like other apps provide for their streaming fire stick Why can’t it allow boomerang or other apps to broadcast to tv ? Having it play personal video clips and pictures from phone for what I paid that’s so not worth it I thought my comments was self explanatory your app doesn’t support remote control for google cast fire stick Roku or any of the many media plug ins available I have google Roku and fire stick is there something I’m missing?

Not usable because of Ad
This might be the first app I’ve used where the ads literally prevent me from using app to even 5 seconds. No exaggeration, you can barely get through connecting your device and figuring out how to use the app before getting the same ad to upgrade to premium every second. Okay, maybe every 2 seconds. No. Exaggeration. This is just horrible design. If I could use the app without seeing an ad that interrupts use every 2 seconds, maybe I could figure out that I like it enough to upgrade. Whose idea was it to design the app this way? Deleting immediately.

Question?
Hi! I downloaded Chromecast to play Netflix from my iPhone, through a screen projector. I read reviews that suggested that, and when looking at the app description it seemed Right. And it hasn’t worked. Does the Chromecast app work without another Chromecast device? I was searching for how to videos, which lead me to that question, although projector reviews lead me to believe just the Chromecast app would work. The device has not been able to find my projector - TMY V08 while my phone is connected to my projector. I’d love help and or advice. Thank you!

Worthless unintuitive app
This app makes zero sense. As soon as it says it is broadcasting, trying to switch to the app you want to broadcast immediately interrupts. The broadcast that hasn't even started yet with a prompt to resume the broadcast. It says to set to do not disturb if you don't want notifications but doesn't say how to do it or just give you a button to select. The help is a couple of paragraphs that don't relate to anything you actually see it do in the app. Can't believe I actually paid money for this completely useless app which was apparently never tested for usability.

Do not buy this.
Ugh… all I wanted was to cast my browser. Should have been simple.. took the app forever to figure itself out and kept disconnecting. When it finally connected, I chose the browser option only to find I have to pay even more money to use that feature. Had I known that ahead of time I would not have gotten this app at all. So if you want to show off photos on your tv, great. But any videos or websites beyond you tube is not gonna happen. I don’t have hours of my life to troubleshoot tech.

Technically it’s not free
Just downloaded the app, it’s has too many ads popping up, technically the only free feature it has that it connects to TV. Other than that, you won’t be able to stream anything over unless you buy the premium, I find it very annoying that it’s being promoted as a free app with in-app purchase. It should have been a paid app from the beginning, but no, you don’t even pay for it once, you pay for a monthly subscription in order to stream on TV. That’s a complete fraud.

TV Cast Big Rip Off
I bought the Premium version of this app & it was completely useless. I could not cast anything from my iPhone except my photos & only some music from Apple Music. The rest of the options were completely useless. I tried to correct the problem through the Troubleshoot tab and all I got was a blank screen. I contacted support and all I got from them was to use another of their useless apps called Chromecast Streamer which also does not work. Don’t download this app and definitely don’t buy the Premium.

Barely OK
While this app allows casting to Chromecast, it almost never can find all of my available devices. Additionally, it will only cast songs that have been uploaded, and not any of the other music that is available in the Apple Music app. Finally, it will not play an album; only single songs. At the end of each song played, you must choose to play another. Wish I hadn’t spent the money for the premium version.

Negative stars!
If it was possible to rate this -100 I would. This app is such trash, it comes up as one of the highest rated apps, yet once downloaded, it’s NONSTOP pop ups to download other apps or upgrade to a paid version. Won’t allow you to do anything. Continuously drops “connection” which doesn’t allow you to cast anything. Just straight up click-bait to boost downloads for the app. The high rating must be from the paid users bc the free version is legitimately useless. Typical BS…

Doesn’t work, ad pop up won’t go away
Tried fussing with this, and it would not work. Every 5 seconds, a splash screen pops up asking me to upgrade and pat $20. I cannot even get the app to work!! It says there’s a free trial, but I cannot get that to work. If you choose to stream a video the app says it wants access to photos. If you choose webstream it points you to another advertisement. Deleted the app after 15 minutes of wasted time trying to get to do ANYthing. It does display ads really well.

Good concept but bad execution
I went ahead and bought the premium version of this and it doesn’t work well at all with my iPhone SE. The media player could use a lot of work as that is why I bought the app. It is like it times out after about 3 minutes and freezes even if my phone stays awake. I would love to give a higher rating if the programming of the app was more professional and actually works like it should.

I have tried to reach out for help and he no response. Hate this and wish I can get my $20 back.

Unavailable Setup Subscription?
You want me to actually purchase a subscription BEFORE I first connect & setup to watch anything? Not likely… I now just want to see if I can actually connect my Internet video stream to my TV. I suppose that I can continue watching every through my laptop, as it’s a large display - for a laptop - and connects to my premium Audioengine 5+ stereo sound system. Perhaps offering a limited setup installation, where your customers can actually verify multiple platform interoperability BEFORE we commit to any form of a subscription… No, the short term recurring subscription isn’t attractive to me because I can’t even verify functionality BEFORE purchasing.., “But that’s just me….”(from “Joe Dirt” (2001)

Not recommended
I didn’t have much luck with this app. Got connected to the chromecast just fine but trying to stream content would broadcast picture but no sound. It would only display in portrait and rotating my phone screen would only rotate the portrait image 90 degrees and staying vertical instead of filling screen as I expected. I wish there was a was to request a refund for the $20 I wasted.

TAKE DOWN the constant subscription ad with abrupt background music
My parents have Chromecast and needed my help navigating the stream service on their phone since our dog chew up the remote control. But each time after I hit connect for wifi and TV, it pops up subscription ad with an irritating background music. My parents don’t need the subscription to stream their dog clips and pictures on the TV. Take down this nonsense ad tactic that doesn’t add any value!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Brain dead developers
Why would someone make an app for mirroring things onto a TV, that is solely dependent on the orientation of the device when casting is started. One SMALL issue there, this absolute useless app literally can only be used in portrait (vertical) mode. That’s means that every single thing that is meant to be watched normally just doesn’t work, or appears sideways. Real great job guys, you did good.

Reviews looked good
Installed. Denied bluetooth access on set up. Three attempts. All it would do is turn on all my Bluetooth devices and stream sound. My tv only displayed TV Cast. Which even after deleting apps, I had to unplug my tv. Great ads for plumbing. Gave them an extra star for that. Im a bit concerned is this just a way to quick grab data to sell. My phone & tv are new.

This is not a Google product.
This is not a Google product. It is not free. And it is not even needed in order to cast from your phone or iPad to your TV. If the developer was more transparent about these things, I might be willing to pay them and keep it, but instead they decided to take the opposite approach. Very shady.

Does not work in portrait - useless
After impulsively and imprudently buying a lifetime subscription instead of a trial, I discovered that trying to use this to mirror something full screen by holding my iPhone in “portrait” mode didn’t work. Don’t fall for this. It’s useless for the most likely use at least I’d have for this - using a chromecast with websites and other apps not natively containing a chromecast interface.

The mirror option is pretty much worthless as it doesn’t work with other apps
Google cast is great for supported apps but terrible for things like Apple TV which it doesn’t allow you to cast. I even paid the extra 20 as it said it would mirror anything from my device and then it didn’t allow me to watch Apple TV.

Worst app… NEED A REFUND
I bought the full $20 thinking it was going to be like how it advertised. But this is one of the worst Chromecast apps out there. Every second of the video is choppy, it doesn’t even play Audio and doesn’t even flip to full screen. I need my money back, you need to fix the app before you advertise saying “4K and no lag” and charge $20

Mistake
Accidentally paid for premium on Tv cast when I meant to pay on screen mirroring. First of all the apps are literally the same so Idk why premium wouldn’t be allowed on both once you pay for it, second it won’t even let me cast the video I wanted to watch on to the tv. I hope I get my money back, because it was an accident paying for tv cast premium in the first place
