Cast audio from Chromecast-enabled apps to speakers

Chromecast-enabled apps vary by country. For more information about available apps in your country, please visit Chromecast-enabled apps.

Many Chromecast-enabled apps support casting to your Chromecast Audio or Chromecast built-in speakers. There is something for everyone — streaming music, radio stations, podcasts and local content playback.

Discover Chromecast-enabled apps that work with your audio device, including: Google Play Music, Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, TuneIn Radio, Rdio, Deezer, Rhapsody, Napster, NPROne, BeyondPod, and more. Let's get casting!

Before you begin casting
  1. Your mobile device, tablet, or computer must be connected to a Wi-Fi network to work. The device must be on the same Wi-Fi network as your Chromecast Audio or speakers with Chromecast built-in. Note: To allow guests to cast without being on your Wi-Fi network, please read  How to set up guest mode. 
  2. You must be running the latest version of the Chromecast-enabled app. You can always double check that you are on the latest version by visiting the Google Play Store or Apple App Store and checking for any app updates.

Find new content to cast

There’s a lot of great content to enjoy from your favorite Chromecast-enabled apps. You don’t want you to miss a single hit tune or podcast.

Within the Google Home app, tap the Discover tab to browse content and find new stuff that’s available on your Chromecast-enabled apps you haven’t  installed yet. Here’s more on how to discover new content. You can also visit our website to see a full list of all Chromecast-enabled apps and available content.

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.
