Chromebook CAST does not show my chromecast AUDIO devices. Only shows chromecast TV device.

I have already done this:
>>cast something to the TV from the Chromebook
>>while the cast is running, observe the cast icon in the extensions are, upper right
>>two finger tap on that
>>select "always show icon"

I still do not see any AUDIO devices on the cast screen.  I click the CAST icon. It shows "TV available". I cast to TV, works great. But no audio devices show up on the cast available devices.
I have various CHROMECAST AUDIO devices. Casting a tab to the TV works fine, but I am not presented with the list of chromecast AUDIO devices I have running  (FYI from a windows PC i can get to all the devices, cast no problem)

Attached  is the “ABOUT” info of my chromebook browser:

Important note on audio: Note that you can only cast your desktop audio from Windows. If you cast your desktop from a Mac or Chrome OS computer, you’ll see the contents of your screen on your TV but won’t be able to hear any audio from your computer.

Please be specific to my question. Please forget chromecast screens for tv for now. 
I need the specific answer for the chromecast AUDIO device (https://store.google.com/us/product/chromecast_audio?hl=en-US). 
How do I cast from CHROMEbook which runs CHROME OS to my CHROME AUDIO device?
thanks.

I just discovered the same issue!  Perhaps we can connect with the Google Home Bluetooth option.  Do you know how to do this?
