  2. The mobile device, tablet or computer that you are using to cast must be on the same Wi-Fi network as your Chromecast Audio.
  3. You must be running the latest version of the Google Cast-enabled app. You can always double-check that you are on the latest version by visiting the Google Store or Apple App Store and check for any app updates.

Find new content to cast:

There’s a lot of great content to enjoy from your favourite Cast-enabled apps and you don’t want to miss a single great tune or podcast.

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

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