    Default New iPhone to Android switcher: how to replace AirPlay, Airport Express, and Apple TV?

    Hi,

    I've just switched to Android after using an iPhone for 4 years.

    Whilst using my iPhone, I've found Airplay to be fantastic. I have an Apple TV connected to my non-smart TV. I used this, via Airplay, to show my iPhone photos on my TV. I also have an Apple Airport Express connected to my non-smart stereo system through the auxiliary input. I used this, via Airplay, to sling my music on my iPhone (both local tracks and Spotify) to my stereo speakers.

    I am wondering how to accomplish these tasks now that I am on Android? I am willing to replace or supplement the Apple TV and the Airport Express with new Android-compatible receivers, but ideally I don't want to upgrade my TV or stereo system yet (e.g. with a smart TV / smart stereo).

    Thanks for any advice.

    Get a Chromecast.

    Thanks for reply.

    Are the photo apps on Android (Gallery and Photos) compatible with Chromecast? I can't tell.
    Chromecast may work for slinging media to my TV. However, it is has only been released in the US I believe. I am in the UK so would be happy to hear about any other solutions.
    Also, I assume Chromecast would not be suitable for slinging music to my stereo system (which is not connected to my TV).
