Can’t factory reset Chromecast Audio through Google Home app

Community Member

I’m unable to perform a factory reset of my Chromecast Audio through Google Home app. My Chromecast audio is inaccessible and therefore it is not an easy matter of pressing the reset button on the chromecast device itself. It used to be possible to do it through the Google Home app, but seemingly not anymore. Can the app be updated to allow for this again?

Hey there S-A,

I apologize for the late response on this, thank you for being patient! Were you able to factory reset that Chromecast Audio? If not, here is how to do so via the Google Home app:

  1. Open the Google Home app Google Home app.
  2. Touch and hold your device's tile.
  3. At the top right, tap Settings and then More More menu and then Factory reset and then Factory reset.

I hope that helps, and if you have any other questions or concerns for me, please let me know.

Best regards,
