Google Releases Chromecast Wi-Fi Update
Google is issuing a update to a bug fix for Android users where some were experiencing Wi-Fi issues when connected to Chromecast.
The update will be available tomorrow.
The Wi-Fi issue was a bug in the cast software incorrectly sending a large amount of network traffic slowing down or temporarily impacting Wi-Fi networks. The specific impact to the network will vary depending on the router.
Google is recommending users to reboot their Android devices and check the Wi-Fi router is running the most recent firmware version.
These issues have been ongoing for weeks with users making note of the problem on the Google Product Forums and forums of router companies including Linksys Netgear, Tp-Link and Synology .
