If your home has two or more isolated networks available, your Android device may auto-switch between networks depending on signal strength. This could affect whether or not you see the Cast button in your applications.

To avoid auto-switching, Android users can go to the device's Wi-Fi settings and Forget "Network B" to ensure that the Android device is connected to the same "Network A" as the Chromecast Audio or Chromecast built-in speakers.
