Using Chromecast built-in speakers with Chrome

What's better than enjoying your favorite streaming music, radio stations, podcasts on your computer? Listening on your awesome audio device! It only takes a few simple steps to begin casting audio from computers running Chrome. Once complete, you can play music on your audio device from almost any website, including Chromecast-enabled sites like Google Play Music, iHeartRadio,  Rdio, and more!

 

To set up casting from Chrome
  1. If you're not already running Chrome, download Chrome. If you are, Chrome updates automatically, so no action should be required.
  2. Ensure you're running the latest version of Chrome. If you're having trouble, here's how to get Chrome updates.
  3. Install the Cast button. If the Cast button is already installed on your browser, you'll see a Cast button in the Chrome toolbar (near the top right).
  4. If you plan to cast a tab's audio to your Chromecast built-in speaker, review the Minimum System Requirements to ensure that your computer and network are capable of supporting this.

 

To start casting your audio device
  1. Navigate to any website you would like to listen to. Some sites will offer Google Cast optimized experience like Google Play Music or rdio.com. 
  2. Press the Cast button in the Chrome toolbar (top right hand area) of your browser. A list of available Chromecast built-in devices will appear.
  3. Pick your audio device and you'll see the Cast button change color to indicate it's active.
  4. Select your favorite music and enjoy the tunes coming from your audio device.

That's it - you're ready to go! If you need more information, check out one of the following:
