At last you can take your listening throughout the house with Chromecast now supporting multi-room streaming.
Google have updated their Chromecasts so that they can work together for streaming music for multiple rooms. You can add your Chromecasts to speaker groups so that multiple Google Cast enabled devices can be grouped together for a combined listening experience when you’re streaming music.
You could group multiple Google Cast devices together before but not Chromecasts, so you can select your listening experience through your TV and listen throughout the house including whatever speakers you have connected to your TV set. It seems to be working for all users who signed up for Google’s preview program on all generations of Chromecast.
To add your Chromecast to a speaker group users will need to go to the Settings menu in the Google Home app and enable the preview program. When you’re casting to a speaker group the Chromecast will display background photos with song information in the bottom left corner.
Google announced multi-room streaming for Chromecasts in October alongside their new Chromecast device with new features like better hardware and voice control. Chromecast’s are a cheap and easy way of making your TV a multimedia, internet connected experience with Netflix, YouTube, music streaming and more.
