Hi Chromecast family! 

We heard your feedback, and the Chromecast team is excited to you bring Multi-room audio support for Chromecast devices! 

If you have a Chromecast 2nd Gen, Chromecast 3rd Gen, or Chromecast Ultra, you will now be able to add these devices to your audio group using the Google Home app (Google Play Store | iTunes App Store). For more information on how to create and manage audio groups, please visit the Chromecast Help Center.

How about showing some love for the 1st Gen?

Support for multi-room audio is a big step in the right direction.  I would like to see this feature extended to video streams as well.  For instance, I should be able to cast a Netflix movie to multiple screens.  The biggest bonus for me would be a better home theater experience.  Imagine the common setup where the projector is hanging from the ceiling near the back of the room, but the audio receiver is at the front of the room, where the image is projected.  At present, I have to cast to the audio receiver to make use of its HDMI pass through, but this requires a 20 ft HDMI cable be run across the room.  If I could simply group 2 Chromecasts together, the problem is solved.  No cable.

Do NOT call that 855 number.  That's not Google Support.  That's a spammer/scammer that will charge you and compromise your account.

This functionality inadvertently adds another feature that others and I've been wanting for a long time - the ability to display Chromecast ambient photos and play Google Play music at the same time! If you cast your music to a group including a Chromecast, the photos keep displaying on the Chromecast and the music plays as well, with a small indicator at the bottom displaying what song is playing.
