If you’ve used a Chromecast, you’ll be aware that the dongle has no external network connections, leaving you to rely on WiFi. While WiFi can be fickle there are a few tricks to getting better reception, but Speed4cast gives you a way to test your network speed, to give you a better indication of your speed.

Speed4cast allows you to cast a network test to your Chromecast, which will test for ‘download speed, upload speed, latency and jitter of chromecast’. All fairly helpful information, Upload and Download speeds are pretty self-explanatory, but Jitter is probably a little unknown; Jitter is the increments of time between packets being received, higher time between packets can indicate network congestion.

Speed4cast

Speed4cast is a free app available in Google Play, so if you’ve been having issues with your Chromecast streaming it may be time to gather a bit of empirical data from your device. Try it out now and see what you think.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
