Chromecast Audio has an LED light on the side of the device that visually explains what the device is doing. The following table shows the different LED status indicators and what the states mean.
|LED status||LED indicator meaning|
|Solid white||Chromecast Audio is connected to the network and is ready to begin casting content, or is already casting content.|
|Pulsing white||Your Chromecast Audio is disconnected and needs to be set up.|
|Pulsing orange||Your Chromecast Audio is receiving an update and is not available for casting. It will be available for use shortly. Don't disconnect your device from power.|
|Solid orange||There may be an error with your device. Perform a reboot on your device by unplugging it from the power source, waiting about 1 minute, and then plugging it back in. If that doesn’t resolve the issue, try a factory reset.|
